In Elizabeth Public Schools, rigor means actively creating and implementing challenging standards that define the "level of cognitive complexity of expected learning." Such standards are applied at all levels in the district; including classroom activities, instructional plans, course content, student work, assessments both summative and formative.
It is through such an education that the achievement gap is eliminated. Elizabeth Public Schools students will strengthen the nation's economic, intellectual, and social impact on the world. In order to do this, we will ensure that every student, regardless of their socio-economic background, is inspired to participate fully in their educational experience and cultivate a true passion for learning.
As the staff of Mabel G. Holmes Annex 5B continues to express the importance of how reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world, Union County Freeholder Sergio Granados drops a visit to read aloud to all of the students in the school. All the students gathered in the school gymnasium as Sergio Granados read one of his favorite early childhood books: “I Can Read with My Eyes Shut,” by Dr. Seuss. He also welcomed Mrs. Jessica Morse back into the building. Mabel G. Holmes Annex 5B would like to take this opportunity to thank Union County Freeholder Sergio Granados for visiting our school and reading a book aloud to the students. It was a rewarding experience for all.
