Welcome to A.W. Spalding Elementary
As on all the GCSS campuses, AWS is a Christian community of learners dedicated to extraordinary accomplishments. AWS seeks to inspire its learners to think deeply, live fully, serve unselfishly, and love God completely. AWS offers two classrooms of each grade level offering standard academic classes in language arts, reading, math, social studies and science. Additionally, computer, music, art, library and PE classes are standard curriculum for every grade level.
AWS students participate in assessments and testing, including Dibels, the Iowa Assessment and ERB Authentic Writing Assessments. Each year all students’ math and reading skills are assessed with Aimsweb. Our students traditionally rank high in all areas, and exceptionally high in writing and reading skills.
Our teachers regularly participate in professional development trainings throughout the summer months. They continually update their practices and curriculum to best serve our students. Teachers use a variety of teaching methods to reach the variety of learning styles of the students that make up each classroom.
