Auburn Elementary Curriculum

We strive to effectively implement an engaging and relevant curriculum to set our students on a path to achieving abundant success. Our elementary curriculum is aligned with current National and State Standards and supports student’s learning at all grade levels. At Auburn Elementary, we utilize our computer labs and in-classroom technology to enhance and support our curriculum, including Nook tablets, ELMO’s, and projectors. While college and/or career readiness may seem far away, at the elementary school level, it is important for us to build a solid foundation in literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies through innovative teaching methodologies.

Avondale K-5 Career Development

Students begin to develop ideas about jobs and the world of work at a young age, but they only know what they have seen or experienced. Often, this is a very limited view. At the elementary schools, it is our mission to help students dive in to all 6 Michigan Career Clusters and be exposed to a multitude of possible careers. We have created many intentional activities and events that are completed throughout the year.

Elementary Activities & Events

-  K-5 Job of the Week (174 covered in 6 years)
-  K-5 "Careers in a Box" Career Cluster lessons available to all teachers
-  2nd grade Career Booklets completed throughout the year, sent home in May as a great keepsake!

Elementary Education is
the Road to the Future

Student success is the focus of everything we do at Auburn Elementary and with Avondale School District. We believe that every student deserves a high-quality education in an inclusive, encouraging environment. A well-rounded school experience helps to prepare students for their life after Avondale, which is why we utilize methodologies like Project Based Learning and Design Thinking to teach students valuable life skills like collaboration, cooperation, decision-making, problem-solving, and self-assessment. Each student is unique, and their individual path may be different, but we are here to support their road to the future!
