Hemby Bridge Elementary NC Report Card
We provide regular updates to you about your student’s academic progress by sending home a Student Report Card. Once a year we provide you with updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card.
This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. There is information about how our school measured against federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) targets and the number of suspensions and expulsions in our school. NC Report Card data is available for our school district and for the state’s education system as a whole.
We are proud of the dedication of our staff and the hard work of the children that we serve. During the 2022-2023 school year, we maintained our letter grade of a B and met growth with EOG results for reading. We improved proficiency in reading and maintained proficiency in math. The 2023-2024 school year focus is to maintain our growth in reading and add an intense focus on math to further our student's growth. The learning growth of our students is a direct result of the hard work of our staff, students and their families.
The numbers tell only part of the story. At Hemby Bridge, we strive to develop knowledgeable and responsible life-long learners. We will continue to focus on quality instruction in all subject areas. Our focus and professional development for staff for the 2023-2024 school year is on high quality instruction in math and the UCPS Portrait of a Graduate, focusing on five essential skills they will need in school and life. The staff at Hemby Bridge work to identify students’ individual strengths and areas of weakness to then target these areas through differentiated classroom instruction in order for each child to grow.
We are a school that embraces technology. All classes are equipped with digital panels or SmartBoards, Chromebooks for each 3rd-5th grade student and a combination of iPads and Chromebooks in our K-2 classrooms. Our teachers implement lesson plans that incorporate the use of technology to move children to become producers with technology during their years in elementary school.
State and local education leaders are committed to providing families with more information about schools. Well-informed families who participate in their children’s education and school enhance the learning environment for students and educators alike. In addition, the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires schools to issue Report Cards.
At Hemby Bridge Elementary, your involvement is very important to the success of our school. I encourage you to review our Report Card carefully, then contact me to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding the Report Card. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interests you have in our school.
Thank you for allowing me to share this Report Card with you and for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education.
