  • Welcome Star Hill Families!

     Our community of learners house students in grades first through fifth in the Caesar Rodney School District. Our days are spent focused on learning with the understanding that time is an invaluable resource that should be spent wisely. When visiting our school you will find children and adults engaged in writing, reading, math, science, social studies, critical thinking and real-life problem-solving. Often you will find students being led in small groups on focused lessons or exploring research topics delving deeper into standards and interests. Instruction, activities, and language used by educators is purposeful with the intended outcome of having students who are independent thinkers and problem solvers. 

    The success of our students comes from the support of our Star Hill families. Collaboration occurs daily among the staff in the building and with the students’ own families. We encourage parents and guardians to develop close relationships with school staff so that we may get to know your child even better which will allow us to best meet his or her needs.  As one family we will make informed decisions about what is best for children while celebrating their accomplishments. 

    We are proud and honored to be members of the Star Hill and Caesar Rodney learning community. Working together will ensure your child has a productive, successful school year.

     

    Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.-- Brad Henry

    The PAWS for Reading Program in schools and libraries has long been a leader in literacy support. But with stay-at-home order and physical distancing measures in place during the Covid-19 Pandemic, our in-person reading visits with schools and libraries aren't an option right now. At the same time, we know this disruption has created an even greater need for literacy support.
     
    PAWS has created a fun, free summer reading challenge. To participate, you can register and pledge to read 20 minutes a day from June 1st-August 31st. Once you register, you will be directed to program materials to get you started and keep you motivated!
