Normandy Elementary School
About Us

Normandy provides a complete curriculum which meets and exceeds all the standards established by the State of Ohio. Specialists provide instruction in art, music, physical education, and library skills. Specialists are employed to help in meeting the needs of students who have special needs or who are advanced learners. Normandy is a full-inclusion school, where all children are assigned to regular classrooms.


Our writing program is the Zaner-Bloser book, Spell-It Write, which integrates emergent spelling skills with writing. Literature is at the core of this program. Each of the 26 units is based on a poem, which is used to call children's attention to a letter of the alphabet, the sound it represents, and its printed form.

The Language Arts curriculum has an emphasis on traditional skills, such as spelling and phonics. The Houghton-Mifflin textbooks and support materials are used in first and second grades. Authentic reading in first and second grades is reading genuine literature and being able to relate that literature to real life. Instruction is based upon the needs of individual students, providing instruction at each child's level of need.


Students receive instruction in the use of the computer and each classroom is equipped with at least four up-to-date computers. Teachers are provided numerous opportunities to learn about computers and how computers can be used to supplement instruction, for curriculum management and for enrichment.

Emphasis on Parent and Community Connections

The Normandy Primary School is dedicated to providing world-class educational opportunities for every student. Staff members know that an objective can be achieved only through a cooperative effort with parents and the general community. Parent and community volunteers are enthusiastically welcomed in the classrooms, the office, playground, library, and in the provision of before- and after-school extended learning opportunities. Indeed, numerous volunteers are present in Normandy School throughout the school day.

A close relationship exists between the community and Normandy School. We work together for the common good of our community. Local police and fire officials visit with students often. Special activities for grandparents, ice cream socials, school tours, and informational seminars are examples of the cooperation between Normandy and its community.
