School Wide Enrichment Model implemented at Atlanta Primary School

Atlanta Primary School has partnered with the University of Connecticut to implement the School Wide Enrichment Model (SEM) for all primary school students.  
An APS Leadership Team has been established and trained in the foundations of the SEM model at the university this past summer.  This team worked to develop the structure and practices of SEM that are custom tailored to capitalize on the unique talents of both faculty and students at APS.  
According to Principal Donna Rice, “The major goal of the SEM is the application of gifted education pedagogy to total school improvement. The SEM provides enriched learning experiences and higher learning standards for all children through three goals; developing talents in all children, providing a broad range of advanced-level enrichment experiences for all students, and providing advanced follow-up opportunities for students based on their strengths and interests.

J.K. Hileman Elementary School thanks community business partners

Local businesses are always ready and willing to help our local schools where they can, when they can.
In recent years the foyer just inside the elementary school is laced with a theme such as a safari which entailed lots of greenery and figures riding in a golf cart.
This year Flint’s Furniture discounted the school and a nice waiting area was constructed.
Roman’s Pizza has always welcomed large groups of kids such as the Champion Bulldogs for the first nine weeks and recently Ivan Smith donated a refrigerator to the school to go in their teacher’s lounge.
“It is a huge advantage in having community partnerships such as these. We are proud to call each of these businesses our friends in education,” J.K.H. Principal David Estes said. “Because of contributions or discounts provided by these companies, we are able to better serve our students.”
