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 2021-2022 school year, we maintained our letter grade of a B. Our third and fourth grade students showed significant gains in reading and math. These scores reflect pre-pandemic results indicating that we have been recovering loss of learning during the past two years. 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 create a caring atmosphere where students are challenged and prepared to become real-world thinkers, global citizens, and problem solvers. We will continue to focus on quality instruction in all subject areas. Our focus and professional development for staff is based on the UCPS EmpowerED Framework which focuses on connecting with students and helping them collaborate and create around their learning. 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. You will see evidence of this differentiated learning through STEAM related activities, problem based learning and project based learning.
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.
