Four-Year Old Kindergarten Through Fourth Grade
Traver's educational experience begins in four-year-old Kindergarten (4K). The 4k students attend school half-days, Monday through Friday. The 5K is a full day program.
Throughout the 4K to fourth grade, the average class size is 12 students.
Beyond the classroom, students have the opportunity to take part in our physical education program everyday with Mr. Nottestad. Students enjoy music with Mrs. Kolmos and art with Mrs. Juszczyk.
Our Library/Media Specialist, Ms. Schultz, helps students learn about the joy of reading and the library as well as helps them learn to navigate computers and programs.
Each classroom is equipped with enough iPads for students to share and use.
The team of teachers in first through fourth grade create special curriculum days that are used to further learning in math, social studies, and reading. Students are mixed into different age groups and abilities to enhance their skills and knowledge of different topics.
Furthermore, the first half hour of the day, the first through fourth graders mix to focus on students' different strengths and abilities. We call this time "Power Hour".
Traver is proud to offer dedicated time that students are able to read for pleasure everyday. Our time is called "D.E.A.R." : Drop Everything And Read.
Our students participate in field trips around the community. Classes welcome visitors to speak about their experiences to extend and enhance regular class time as well.
