Enrollment: appx 600
Walhalla Elementary School is helping all students develop the world class skills and life characteristics of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate by providing high quality teaching and a challenging curriculum where all students can be successful.
The mission of Walhalla Elementary School, in cooperation with home and community, is to develop confident, responsible, productive lifelong learners, by providing a comprehensive educational experience in a positive environment. Our mission statement is embedded in our daily routines and all decisions made at Walhalla Elementary School. Our teachers are engaged in learning new strategies to use in the classroom such as: literacy and writing instruction, small group guided reading, small group math instruction, and differentiated instruction to meet individual student needs. As we have achieved our 1:1 classroom technology status, our teachers continue to effectively implement instructional technology. We continuously use assessment data as progress monitoring tools to help challenge each student at appropriate levels. Teachers closely monitor student growth and adjust teaching strategies to meet every student’s needs. At Walhalla Elementary we also focus on non-academic programs that grow the whole child. Our guidance counselor teaches monthly guidance lessons using the Chick-fil-A Core Essentials Character Education Program. In addition, we continue to implement the Positive Behavior Interventions and Support Program (PBIS) school-wide. This program rewards students for exhibiting positive behaviors.
Walhalla Elementary School is proud to be a successful school, focused on academic achievement and student character. We are very excited about the accomplishments of our students and staff during the – 2019 - 2020 school year and we continue to look for ways to improve. We received a $500.00 ExxonMobil Grant. Our school was also awarded the “Safe Kids Safe School” from Safe-Kids Upstate.
Students at Walhalla Elementary School have opportunities outside of the regular school day. Students can participate in various after school activities such as Steam Team/Lego League, Art Squad, Math Madness, Battle of the Books, Student Council, Musicals, and Chorus. In addition, our Parent-Teacher-Student-Team (PTST) and our School Improvement Council (SIC) supported many virtual and drive-thru community events. The PTST sponsored a Thanksgiving dinner, Literacy Night, and our Teacher Appreciation Week activities. Our SIC sponsored Seasons Readings Night, Math/Science Night and the Family Fun Run, all of which were virtual. Many other local businesses support our school throughout the year.
Walhalla Elementary School has numerous accomplishments to be proud of. These accomplishments are possible because of the dedication of our staff, students and families. We will continue to work together to ensure that our school is a place Where Everyone is a Star.
