Clubs

At Drew we have a 3-5 Chorus and 5th grade band. The students participate in two shows during the year. There is also an active Art Club, Stacking Group and a Computer Technology Club. In Stacking, the students work with a highly recognized PE teacher on the practice of cup stacking. At the end of the year, a Stacking Tournament is completed. The Drew News Club uses technology to produce a school newscast.

Programs

Before and after care is emphasized at Drew where we provide a whole rounded educational experience and provide extended care, which helps the parent community who have unique and individual life schedules. The Kid Care district program provides AM/PM tutoring and general child support. For a portion of the year the school extends its hours by providing an AM tutoring program. Students are selected based on their academic needs in LA and Math.

Teachers

The district provides the main portions of professional development for the staff. However some professional development does take place in the school. Teachers are supported with a common professional learning plan and work as grade level teams on similar learning goals. Staff meetings review best practices and teachers are allowed to attend annual professional development conferences of their choice.

Supports

We have a teacher who assists English language learners daily. The school also has bilingual classes in grades 3, 4, and 5. Pupils are tiered by their level of English language skills. Teachers differentiate the lessons to meet each student and their individual learning level.

Health

Physical Education classes are taught weekly. The students also have 30 minutes of outdoor recess. The district implemented a Social Emotional Learning program to support the students in this area of need. Planned lessons are shared with the students to provide support in the area of social emotional learning.

Parents

We have an active PTO which supports the school through fundraising projects. All raised funds go directly to programs that support literacy and anti-bullying. They have two book fairs and anti-bullying shows. Funds are raised through family events, which creates a strong rapport with the community. They also provide support for the expenses of class trips.

Facilities

Although over 40 years old the school has many modern facilities. It has seen a variety of changes the latest of which took place many years ago when the building moved from an open space to single classroom units. The school has an active gym, which is also an assembly area. Other areas are dedicated to band, vocal music, computers, and art. Students have access to all subjects through the fine arts rotation.

More

The Perry L. Drew Elementary located on a 22-acre site on Twin Rivers Drive in East Windsor is named in honor of a much loved former school bus driver, truant officer and custodian. Mr. Drew served our district's children for over 30 years until his retirement in 1973. Approximately 580 students in grades 3 through 5 attend our school, which was first occupied in 1975. Since that time the Drew School has had several additions including in 1976 the completion of the first annex and in 2003 a third/fourth grade wing comprising of ten additional classrooms was completed along with enclosing the "open Space" area of the original building with classrooms. The school's mascot is Drew the Dragon. The philosophy of the Drew School is that children learn best when instruction is presented in a manner that helps them make meaningful connections to everyday life. Our students are active learners. As a regular practice, differentiation is emphasized in classes. Our goal is for all students to become lifelong learners.
