A Welcome from the Principal:
Thank you for visiting the website of Armstrong School! Built in 1969, Armstrong is a primary building which serves approximately 200 students in kindergarten through second grade.

Armstrong offers a variety of educational experiences for its students. Placing primary emphasis on the language arts skills of reading and writing, our students are supported by both a literacy program and an at-risk reading program. In addition, guided reading is utilized in all first and second grade classrooms as a means of individualizing reading instruction and practice to the specific skill levels of each student.

Math and science are additional areas of emphasis at Armstrong. In math, we balance daily practice of foundational skills and concepts with open-ended mathematical problem solving. In science, we aim to engage students in hands on activities that expose them to scientific skills and concepts while also encouraging higher level thinking skills.

In addition to the subject areas of reading, writing, math, and science, one of Armstrong's goals is to increase our ability to differentiate instruction in order to better meet the needs of individual students. We have a variety of initiatives to work toward this goal, including curriculum mapping, flexible grouping of students, and peer observations.

Armstrong has a prairie located in the front of the school. It is used in a variety of educational ways and is enjoyed by all. We invite you to take a look, by stopping by and walking the paths or contact the office to find out more ways to help volunteer.  Be sure to visit our Friends of the Prairie web site!

Armstrong School Hours

The Armstrong school day begins at 8:40 a.m. Students are welcome to arrive at school any time between 8:20 and 8:40 a.m. We ask that students enter through the front main entrance of the school and go to the gym. Students who arrive after 8:40 a.m. should check in with Mrs. Davidson at the office.

We had a celebration to honor Miss Sollberger with a program and dedication ceremony for the lending library that is located in front of the prairie at Armstrong School.  Each second grade student handed her a book to put in the lending library.  Please feel free to stop by and visit the prairie and to borrow a book to read.
