Learn more about Stoy Elementary School.
Stoy Elementary School establishes excellence in teaching and learning, enabling our students to attain the knowledge, values, and skills identified in the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Our students grow in their understanding of how, why, when, and where to use these skills, while also developing the ability to successfully collaborate and problem-solve with others as responsible 21st century citizens. The mission of the Haddon Township School Community is to expand minds, cultivate problem-solvers, and inspire leaders who persevere in an evolving world.
In order to meet the highest expectations, our comprehensive curriculum provides for rich, authentic, and inquiry-based learning experiences for all students. We create a nurturing, stimulating, and academically challenging environment that ensures we meet the individual needs of our students.
In order to fully engage our students, we provide opportunities to participate in Student Council in grades 4-5; instrumental music lessons in grades 4 and 5; chorus, band and orchestra in grades 4 and 5; a Student Ambassadors program in grade 5; after school fitness club; and a rich, PTA-supported cultural arts program.
Before and after school care is available through our locally developed School Aged Child Care (SACC) program. In addition, wrap-around care is available for Kindergarten students. SACC also runs a highly successful summer recreation program for students in grades K-5.
Each staff member participates in on-going, targeted professional development that supports growth in the knowledge of curriculum and instruction; meets the needs of 21st century learners; and teaches effective use of technology. In addition, our paraprofessionals engage in inservice opportunities that support their growth as important members of our educational team.
We provide a rich variety of supports to target the unique needs of our diverse learners. Leveled Literacy Intervention is provided in grades K-5 for those struggling to acquire literacy skills. Non-English speaking students work daily with a specially certified teacher. A continuum of services in the least restrictive environment is also provided to our students with special needs.
Student health and wellness services are provided, and the school nurse completes annual screenings for each student. Students in grades 1-5 participate in weekly physical education and health lessons, while Kindergarten students receive 20 minutes of daily recess and monthly health lessons from the school nurse. In addition, a daily recess period is provided in grades 1-5 as part of the lunch program.
Our school has a vibrant PTA, which supports the school library and organizes both school and book fairs. A district-wide Parent Advisory Group meets throughout the year to gain input from parents of students with special needs. Teacher, school, and district websites are available for parent reference, providing information about events. Weekly e-blasts are sent to parents and guardians to keep them informed about school activities.
The building was recently updated to include a state of the art all-purpose room, two new classrooms, library, art room, bathroom facilities, and a main office suite including a nurse's office. Renovations also included new floors, interior doors, lighting, speaker system, and HVAC system. New exterior doors, as well as security cameras, provide for an updated, secure entrance.
A recent comprehensive referendum project provided safety and security upgrades. Parent school safety meetings are held each year to provide input from our community regarding safety issues. Our district safety team works closely with local law enforcement to ensure consistent updates to our safety practices and procedures.
We are proud that our students in grades 3-5 are part of a 1:1 iPad initiative that allows technology to be seamlessly integrated into daily learning activities.
Stoy houses a tuition-based preschool program for three and four year olds residing in the district. The program utilizes Creative Curriculum, which emphasizes learning through play and hands-on experiences.
Developmentally appropriate applications allow students to collaborate with peers and share their work with parents and guardians. Technology also helps to support our communications with parents and the community, with text and email alerts available.
