A Message from Administration
Welcome to Babylon Memorial Grade School!
Our unique learning community focuses on fostering responsible, caring students in grades 3-6, while promoting academic growth for all. We place an emphasis on collaboration and building positive relationships through a student-centered approach to learning. At Babylon Memorial Grade School, we encourage our students to achieve their personal and academic goals. Students are afforded daily opportunities to enable their growth and success.
With the use of our instructional programs, our skilled teachers align their classroom lessons to promote academic success. We set high expectations for students, while providing the foundation for lifelong learning. Students are engaged in daily interdisciplinary lessons that focus on the core subject areas, and instruction is differentiated to help support students at various levels. In addition, students participate in special area classes to enhance their learning in music, art, library, technology, and physical education. Throughout the day, students are invited to make connections with what they are learning to their own personal experiences.
Our core social-emotional values, CARES, also plays an important role in our daily instruction, as we strive to educate the whole child. We invite our students to participate in different initiatives to promote kindness, acceptance, inclusion, and an overall sense of community. Lastly, our learners have an opportunity to participate in after-school clubs that pertain to their personal interests and hobbies.
A strong family partnership continues to play a vital role in educating our students. We encourage families to maintain open lines of communication with our staff, and we continually welcome families to school events to celebrate our students and their achievements. Our PTA helps strengthen our partnership by organizing events for our school community. In addition, our weekly newsletter assists families with staying current with what’s happening around the halls of Babylon Memorial Grade School.
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns regarding your child. I look forward to continued student growth and success in our incredible school community!
