In the Launch modules for kindergarten through fifth grades students learn important, future-changing lessons, learn to take risks, and employ critical thinking skills.
  • The use of iPads help students become comfortable utilizing technology to learn and discover together.
  • Students ask questions, explore ideas, and solve problems through activity, project, and problem-based learning, grounded in research-based practices.
  • Students develop an interest in STEM early and can continue on the journey in middle school STEM electives such as Medical  Detectives, Flight and Space, Design and Modeling, and Women in Engineering.
  • STEM will  engage students, build confidence, grow interest, and put them on a course for strong accomplishments in middle school, high school, and      beyond.

PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports)

PBIS is a happening at Naldrett Elementary! It is a school-wide positive approach in teaching school-wide expectations and safety.   PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports.  PBIS is a system that allows our school to create a positive school environment by defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors.  PBIS improves the link between researched based practices, teaching and learning environments.  At Naldrett Elementary, we have chosen to continue the focus on four character traits: "Kind, Responsible, Respectful and Safe".  When students display these expectations, their behavior is acknowledged with praise, rewards and celebrations.  PBIS encourages good behavior and increases instructional time.  This year Naldrett's star has a new face along with new posters and expectations around the school.   As the school year progresses, we will be unrolling new aspects of our PBIS system.  All of our staff will be given "star bucks" that they can give to any student for positive behavior.  There will be a monthly random drawings and classroom rewards as well as students recognized as "Students of the Month" from each teacher.   Look for more to come on our PBIS this school year!

Here is a picture of our School-Wide Assembly called "How to Be a Bucket Filler!"  The assembly focused on how to treat others with kindness and how to ask for adult help when having a problem!    Our students are bucket fillers, not a dippers! For more information go to for free resources and remember:   "One kind word can change someone's entire day!"

Plan on Volunteering This Year?

This year Anchor Bay is requiring that all volunteers submit a completed volunteer registration form along with a copy of a valid driver's license before they plan on being in the classroom, going on a field trip, etc. The volunteer form and copy of your driver's license is sent to our Central Administration building, then sent out for a background check to the Michigan State Police Department. Volunteer Registration Forms are available in your child's school office.
