About Fred Fifer Middle
Fifer is proud to continue CR's strong traditions of excellence. Fifer's Athletic Program had some shining moments during the 2009-2010 school year. Our best season records include: boys' basketball 7-4 (3rd Place in the Capital Classic), and girls' soccer 11-0 an undefeated season, football 5-1-1, and Field Hockey 8-4. Academically, the staff continues to use technology as a means for students to access the curriculum/instructional resources. In-class phones, LCD projectors and school-wide video distribution systems also bring important resources into classroom. We have also introduced the Bank At School Program. This program allows students to start a savings account by making deposits at school. They learn the importance of money management, reaching financial goals, and banking procedures.
The Caesar Rodney School has established a curriculum development process which supports alignment to the existing Delaware State Standards and Grade Level Expectations. This process involves teacher and administrative input through a Curriculum Cabinet and Council process. The preparation of our students as life-long learners in a global community of the 21st century society is the unifying objective of this process. The curriculum not only identifies essential knowledge and skills, but also supports students' development in problem solving and gathering and using resources that will enable them to succeed. Each content area (English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, World Languages, Physical Education, Health, and Family and Consumer Sciences) also has an Assessment OF Learning and Assessment FOR Learning component to support students in the learning process and to determine specific performance relative to the State Standards.
