Reuben E. Thalberg Elementary School is a state of the art school capable of servicing 500 students in grade kindergarten through five, situated on a ten acre site. It has a computer room, a spectacular media center, a breath-taking art room and technology friendly classrooms. Some unique features include:
Our school motto is “Where Children Soar and Dreams take Flight!” Our staff works to meet the children's wide range of abilities by implementing effective programs through differentiation, thus meeting the needs of all students. Our school offers proactive programs to assist students and staff, such as the Scientific Based Research Intervention (SRBI), an Inclusion philosophy, and Instrumental Music, including string instruction, immersive educational technology and a host of student based club activities. Our Language Arts and and Mathematics Curriculum is assessment driven and is based on state standards. Science, Social Studies, Health, Media Skills, Music, Art and Physical Education complete our instructional program.
Thalberg School's staff and students have updated of our safety measures in the event of an emergency. Click on the link above to the parents' letter for our school safety plan.
It is important to provide the students with a safe environment so they can remain focused on their academics. In order to maintain the level of safety and security in the building, we do ask all visitors to stop in the main office. Visitors will be permitted to the classroom with a scheduled appointment with the classroom teacher.
Parents are the foundation to a child's education. The home connection allows the staff to better support your child's education. The more information you can provide us about your child, the more we are able to meet the learning needs with appropriate actions. Each child at Thalberg is a success story. We look forward to writing the story together with you. You can assist your child by volunteering for field trips, class activities, reading to children, art projects, typing, helping on the computer or simply contact your child's teacher to see how you can help.
The PTO is devoted to improving our school. The Thalberg PTO has been instrumental in fund raising and has contributed to our classroom environments through the purchase of technology and supplies for our children at Thalberg. This year our PTO is focusing on improving the playground equipment for our children. We want to make recess fun, social and healthy.
Thalberg School has embraced the new Common Core State Standards. Students are now being provided with learning opportunities that challenge their thinking and develop strong habits of mind. The link below is to the Common Core State Standards for parents as we remain partners in your child's education:
The Connecticut State Department of Education created a document for parent information regarding the Common Core. The information provided is helpful for you to support your child during the curriculum and testing changes to support the Common Core.
