About Nellie H. Stokes
Nellie Hughes Stokes Elementary School has a mentoring program for at-risk students for the purpose of enhancing these students' social and emotional growth with an academic foundation. Teachers who volunteer as mentors make daily contact upon their arrival at school and then once a week for a more in-depth mentoring session. Our Coordinated School Health Team provides activities and information for both students and their families in relation to health and physical fitness. The History Club and Talented and Gifted programs provide opportunities for students to participate in state functions and competitions. Wednesday envelopes are a district wide form of communication where parents can look for interims, report cards, assessments, teacher notes, daily class work and PTO/school announcements.
The District 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.
