Mission

The mission of Gloucester Township Schools is to provide a program for all students. At Loring Flemming Elementary School, we provide an environment where all students can grow and succeed. We are committed to preparing our students to be life-long learners as well as productive members in an ever-changing society. Our school is rich in diversity. We embrace our differences as well as teach students in an environment where their individual needs can best be met.

Academics

The Reading (SuperKids, Wonders, Wit & Wisdom) and Math (My Math) programs along with the TCI program positively meet the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Students receive instruction in six specials classes: Art, Computers, Library, Music, Physical Education, and Spanish. Special Education, Intervention, IMPACT, and ELL services are coupled with an Extended Day program to further address individual student needs. This year, we have introduced the SuperKids program at the first grade level and have implemented Wit and Wisdom for ELA in third, fourth, and fifth grades. Full copies of all district curriculum can be found on the district website-www.gloucestertownshipschools.org

In the spring, we will be offering Sports Club, Dance Club, and Coding Club. This year we have also introduced a Young People of Character club. During the summer months, Summer Reading Rocks and Summer Math Fact programs are made available to students.

Programs

Before and after school care is provided through our Latchkey Program for students in grades kindergarten through fifth both during the school year and the summer. Gloucester Township offers a variety of activities for elementary-age students.

Teachers

Loring Flemming staff participate in regular Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). In addition, staff have both full and early dismissal days trainings and meetings designed to better plan for and meet student achievement goals. An additional day of professional development was added for the current year to accommodate additional training for technology and student social emotional learning. Staff release time is used for specific content area instruction above and beyond district in-service days. In addition to these required activities, staff participate in numerous voluntary trainings and learning communities.

Supports

Loring Flemming meets students'' individual needs through push-in and pull-out instructional environments for students with disabilities, students with Federal 504 accommodations, and English Language Learners. Our Response to Intervention (RTI) program provides tiered levels of supports for students in ELA and Math. The I&RS team meets regularly to assist students with learning, behavioral, or health difficulties. Loring Flemming students have a daily Intervention and Enrichment period to meet individual needs.

Parents and family members play an integral part in the educational process. We promote parents as partners and we look forward to working together for the best interests of the child. Loring Flemming Elementary School has a dedicated parent organization (called the PEC) that meets monthly to plan fundraising activities and school sponsored events for the benefit of our students. Parents and family members are extremely generous of their time. The district has a Special Education Parent Advisory Group. Many activities take place which benefit from parent involvement throughout the year. Parents also have access to student and school information through the Parent Portal. Further information about these programs is available on the district website.

More

At our school, we look for many ways to address the emotional and social needs of our students. We use character education and a school-wide incentive program which provides a framework for student success. Our newly implemented PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) program has created a climate in which positivity, kindness, and a desire to learn are emphasized. The staff focus on acknowledging and praising students who demonstrate Respect, Ownership, Appreciation, Responsibility, and Safety (ROARS). The school''s Safety program empowers selected fifth grade students who are trained to assist their peers and model desired behaviors. The school communicates with parents through a variety of means including a weekly newsletter, Global Connect notifications, and regular website maintenance. At Loring Flemming, technology is integrated into everyday instruction. Every grade level classroom is equipped with a projector, a document camera, and Chromebooks that enrich teaching and learning. Our Chromebook initiative in 3rd-5th grade ensures that all students in these grade levels has a device for use during the school day.
