Learn more about Radix Elementary.

Mission

Our mission is to ensure ALL students meet academic goals, in an inclusive environment of respect and tolerance. Radix continues to be a school of character, boasting a Bucket Filling philosophy, based on the book, "How Full is Your Bucket?" Paintings and "bucket-filling" messages can be seen throughout the school, reminding everyone that making good choices and caring about others foster a positive school climate.

Academics

Our basal reading program is Wonders; Fundations (PK-2) is the primary phonics program. We use My Math (K-4). Research-based programs (Wilson, ST Math) support RTI interventions. Grades 1-4 have Art, Music, Library and H/PE classes each week. A Gifted and Talented program provides enrichment to identified students in grades 2-4. Grades 3 & 4 had 1:1 computers, and all others had access. Computer apps were used to support instruction (Wixie, ALEX, ExactPath, Razz-kids, LinkIt, Kahoot, etc.)

Clubs

The following clubs are offered as excurricular opportunities for our students in grades 3 & 4: Art Club, SAVE (environmental) Club, Student Council, Safety Patrol, Character Ed Club (students serve as mentors to younger peers), Helping Hands (students assist teachers). All students and parents are invited to participate in the PE/Running Club, and/or the Radix Caring Kids Club- a service club.

Programs

An outside agency, Kids Choice, provides before and after school care for working parents. Students spend that time in our All Purpose Room.

Teachers

In house PD occurs frequently: grade-level meetings provide time for data analysis; faculty meetings focused on enhancing student executive functioning and on effective learning activities, and well as RTI. Teachers are encouraged to participate in self-selected PD both in district and out.

Supports

Full array of student support services: A full-time ELL ; 3 full time and 4 part-time Basic Skills teachers for struggling learners; Co-teach classes for Students with disabilities; plus OT, PT, counseling and Speech. A full time school counselor addresses social/emotional needs of students. I & RS provides interventions: class strategies, tutoring, parent communication, etc. Also, many paraprofessionals offer student support in various settings.

Health

During opening assemblies, students were asked to make healthy food choices at lunch, focusing on “brain food.” Weekly, students have Health & PE twice, plus TDPE for 70 min. PE/Running Club optional for students and families to promote healthy living. During the annual Week of Respect, we focus on respecting self and others. We also had: Move & Groove -A-Thon, Fitness Testing, Nutrition lessons hosted by our Food Service Compay, Drug & Safety Awareness, Field Day, and a Fun Run.

Parents

Radix has a large parent presence, with many volunteers who support the school community. The principal hosts bi-monthly PACE meetings (PArents Caring about Education) on Saturday mornings, to discuss school climate and the school community. An active PTA sponsors many events annually: ice-cream social, Halloween party, Candy Bar Bingo, Tricky Tray, Book Fair, Spring Fair, etc. They also conduct monthly meetings, and run multiple fund-raisers.

Facilities

Radix was build in 1980, with 2 additions since, a gym and a K/PK wing. There are 44 classrooms. Our All Purpose Room serves as our cafeteria, as well as our auditorium with a stage for assemblies and student performances. We boast a large and interactive Media Center, as well as a computer lab for class lessons and teacher trainings. Plus, there is a related services room for OT and PT.

Technology

Each student, PK-4, has access to a computer in a 1:1 ratio. Technology is infused throughout the curriculum, supporting students in all content areas, and at all levels (ie: ST Math, Learning Ally for our special needs students, Exact Path, Google Classroom, Wixie, etc.) Each year there is a STEM day, when all students engage in an engineering project.
