  • Veteran's Day 2011

     Major Tim Starke didn’t think he would get to attend the annual Overdale Elementary Veteran’s Day salute.

    However, his unit returned home recently and Starke was once again a major part of the school celebration.

    But on Friday, his son, Ben, a preschool student at Overdale, also played a role. Wife and mom, Heidi, is a teacher at the school.

  • New system of accountability

    If we had a normal class of children where 87% of the students are making a failing grade, I would wonder if the problem was with the person presenting the material.
    You may notice I didn’t say teacher, because in order to really be a teacher, a student has to learn what it is that the teacher is supposed to have taught.
    We don’t have this problem because we have solid, sensible, caring teachers who will do what it takes to make sure students understand what they need to understand to progress to the next level.

  • Transfers allowed at two schools

                HILLVIEW - Of the third-grade students at Overdale Elementary, 92.31 percent scored proficient in reading last spring during assessment tests.

                However, having a school that is excelling in all areas is no guarantee that it will achieve the ever-growing targets set in the federal No Child Left Behind act.
