About Our School
Helen M. Lehman Elementary School, built in 1980, serves Kinder Academy through sixth grade students. Our campus is located in a quiet residential neighborhood that backs up to Jennings Park. Lehman is a perfect setting for physical activities that earned our school the 2015 and 2016 Let’s Move! Active Schools National Award for physical fitness, supported by Michelle Obama. The Healthy Schools Program gave us the bronze award through the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation.
Our committed staff is implementing the Common Core State Standards while focusing on 21st century learning skills: critical thinking, communication, creativity, collaboration, content knowledge, and civic engagement. Lehman’s core academic program is supported by a reading teacher, a teacher on special assignment (TOSA), and several instructional assistants. We are implementing a Learning Center Model to address the needs of all students during our Walk to Read time. This model provides all students with small group reading intervention targeted at their current level of reading. This allows all students to receive strong foundational skills in the areas of reading, comprehension, and language acquisition. Our dedicated staff enhances their classroom programs through multicultural literacy, character development, eco-literacy, music, student government, and policies supporting healthy eating and exercise habits.
Parent and community volunteer work is important to our academic program. We encourage parents to join the Parent/Faculty Organization (PFO), the School Site Council (SSC), and the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). Our staff looks forward to working with you and your children.
