Deauville Gardens East Elementary School serves approximately 450 students from kindergarten through grade five and provides a variety of experiences to support the social, emotional and academic well-being of students. The collaborative atmosphere, well-trained and highly qualified staff and student-centered philosophy foster an environment which truly benefits children.

In order to provide a meaningful and effective education, maximize student growth and meet the requirements of the Common Core Standards, a variety of programs and approaches are utilized. Guided Reading is the foundation of the Balanced Literacy program that is embraced in order to challenge each individual student at his or her appropriate level. Math is taught by allowing students to experiment with concepts and create their own understanding of material. In addition, a number of after-school programs and clubs present students with opportunities to explore new interests.

At Deauville Gardens East, we recognize that a strong partnership between the school and home is essential for a positive and productive educational experience.

Second graders in Mrs. Byrnes’ class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School recently read “Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes” by Nicola Davies. Students learned about living things that can be found on, in and around us, both good and bad. Microbes can multiply and split to make new things, and some microbes can make people sick. Microbes are so tiny that they can’t be seen unless under a microscope. Students researched microbes and made a Google slide to share the information they learned, along with creating a clay model of a microbe.

Happiness was the theme for the literacy night celebration held at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School on April 6. Students in all grades, along with their parents, were invited to come dressed in their pajamas and joined together in their love of reading.

The hallways of the school were adorned with emojis and happiness quotes. In the classrooms, each student had a copy of “Layla’s Happiness” and the teacher read the story aloud so they could enjoy the book together. Afterward, students created self-portraits and wrote about what happiness means to them. The completed portraits will be hung in the hallway to spread happiness throughout.
