Colonial is an i-Ready school.  iReady was built for the Common Core.  It provides the data-driven insights that classroom teachers need to determine exactly where to focus instructional time to ensure all students are on track to meet rigorous expectations and to succeed.


iReady Incentive Necklace

Here at Colonial "We Are Wild About Learning", and this year's iReady incentive celebrates student progress with these colorful animal charms. As students master customized lessons in both reading and math, they are awarded a new addition for their necklace. We are already off to terrific start as many students are wearing their charms proudly around campus!  

Colonial Elementary is also a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) school.  PBS provides a positive and effective alternative to the traditional methods of discipline.  PBS methods are researched-based and proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in the school, resulting in a more positive school climate and increased academic performance.  PBS advocates the use of positive behavior interventions and school-based disciplinary strategies that reduce or eliminate the need to use suspension and expulsion as disciplinary options.
