  • 2017-2018 CR SCHOOL BELL SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED

    The State of Delaware is experiencing a severe bus driver shortage
    and the Caesar Rodney School District is taking proactive steps to keep our buses running. 

    With the alignment of bell times for both the secondary and elementary schools,
    we have dramatically increased our efficiency as each bus can service both sets of schools.

    Double runs means fewer drivers are needed and cuts transportation costs as well.
    Furthermore, the bell time alignment allows for more middle school students
    to attend high school classes for distance learning experiences.

    The change was made out of necessity - primarily due to bus routes being refused
    or dropped by our bus contractors and their inability of finding bus drivers.

    After a community committee studied the issue, a decision was made to change start
    times so that we were still able to provide transportation services to our families.

    Early Dismissal Times are TBA. Please share. Thank you.

  • 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, 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 guide us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.-- Brad Henry
