On behalf of the Riddle staff, I would like to welcome you to the Riddle Elementary School Web page. We are looking forward to another great year at Riddle Elementary! We are anxiously looking ahead to reacquainting ourselves with the current Riddle families and welcoming our many new families. We encourage family members to become an active part of the rich learning environment at Riddle. Our classroom teachers welcome volunteers and our staff is always available to help answer question, listen to concerns, or just a friendly chat.
The teachers and staff at Riddle are always looking for ways to stretch their minds and grow with the students as they constantly learn new methods to teach to all learning styles and to incorporate research-based "best-practice" instructional strategies to help all children succeed.
To that end, we are committed to:
- Set high expectations for ourselves and our students
- Instill good character
- Be there for each other and focus on needs and feelings
- Be positive
- Develop a collaborative culture
- Have good communication and relationships between home and school
- Do whatever it takes to help every child succeed
The Indiana Academic Standards serve as the basis for our curriculum. We use common assessments to evaluate student progress toward mastering standards and to guide our instruction at every grade level. Our staff is committed to providing continual support to our students to ensure mastery of the State Academic Standards in preparation for their next level of learning. The Arts and Character Education are essential components of a well-rounded education. Students are engaged weekly in art, music, physical education, and technology. The character traits of thrift, conservation, citizenship, character, morality, and responsibility are emphasized in all classes.
