Elayna Wilson

The faculty and I would like to welcome you to Shayne Elementary School. Shayne truly is a community school, and we offer an environment that is warm, inviting and accepting of all. We believe strongly that education is a partnership between school, home and community, and that each of us must do our part to ensure the success of all students! 

Shayne is fortunate to have an outstanding PTA that supports both students and staff. Parents have ample opportunity to volunteer and are always welcome here to help out. I hope you'll visit soon to see what our wonderful, family-oriented school is all about.

School Description

Shayne Elementary School offers a safe and nurturing environment for Pre-K through 4th-grade children. We focus on all required state objectives as well as teaching students how to self-regulate and monitor their own learning behaviors through Responsive Classroom techniques. Each student is provided instruction by a qualified teacher who readily accepts the responsibility to deliver the highest-quality instruction possible.

Our teachers emphasize the importance of math and reading in our daily instruction. We strive to challenge students to learn their math facts but also understand the process of mathematical algorithms. Teachers also strive to enhance learning through the use of technology and projects that actively engage the students through inquiry-based teaching. For our gifted students, we offer Encore, and throughout the school students will find a multitude of blended learning opportunities. 

Our school welcomes parents to participate in their child's education and strives to partner with parents and community members to achieve the best for all students. Our dads are invited to serve in WATCHD.O.G.S., a nationally recognized volunteer program specifically for dads that allows them to serve as role models for our students.
