Regal Elementary School 2707 East Rich Avenue • Spokane, WA 99207-5827 • 354-3900 Welcome to Regal Elementary! Regal Elementary staff wants to invite the Hillyard community to participate in all of our school activities and events such as family nights, grade level programs during the day, and music programs in the evening. We also have a strong volunteer program and encourage family and community members to participate. Please check with our school office to fi nd out how you can play a part in helping students be successful! Regal’s Mission Statement To develop the skills and talents of all students through rigorous learning experiences, supportive relationships, and relevant real-life applications. What Makes Regal Special? Regal Elementary is distinctive because of the students and close-knit community we serve. Generations of families growing up in Spokane’s Hillyard community have attended Regal and gone on to graduate from Rogers High School. We are teaching the new leaders of our community. In an effort to accomplish our instructional goals, we use our personnel and fiscal resources very intentionally. Students work with a number of adults during the day to help lower the teacherto-student ratio for more personalized learning. Students’ academic achievement is determined by the Measurement of Student Progress (MSP), which is administered to third through sixth graders each spring. Students also take part in activities designed to strengthen other abilities such as after school cross-country, basketball, volleyball, or Writing Rally and Math Is Cool competitions. We are proud of our staff and students’ accomplishments and look forward to having Regal Elementary become a second home for the children and families we serve. Spokane Public Schools’ New Goal: T-2-4 Spokane Public Schools is committed to making sure that all doors are open to our students after they graduate from high school. The key in today’s global economy is for all of our students to understand that their best opportunities for employment are connected to some advanced degree. With our new goal of T-2-4, we are preparing students to successfully complete some form of higher education: a technical program or a 2- or 4-year college or university. We have moved the fi nish line past high school graduation to help ensure our students are ready, that they get in, and then make it through their choice of post-secondary education. The success of T-2-4 requires strategies and innovations that develop each student’s talents and skills to their full potential. T-2-4 starts with conversations about careers and college in elementary grades, and continues through high school with internships, identifying career interests, and completing college applications. T-2-4 is a goal we will not achieve if we act alone. We are grateful for the consistent support of our community partners, families, and employees who go out of their way to put education fi rst and fi nd new and better ways to help students.

The State of Washington acknowledged this achievement by awarding Regal Elementary a Title I Academic Achievement Award, recognition for which everyone worked hard. In addition, Regal was recognized last year by the State of Washington as a Reward School because of students’ progress on the MSP. We are also very proud that each year we have several teams representing our school in the Math Is Cool regional competition. The teams have done well and have even gone on to state competition utilizing mental math skills to solve every day problems. These examples demonstrate students’ commitment to achieving academic success in order to help them become productive citizens. Every public school in the state of Washington has individualized targets for its students to reach in the areas of mathematics and reading. These targets are now referred to as Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) and replace the Adequate Yearly Progress measure used in the past. Washington was approved to set new AMOs by a waiver to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The new targets for student learning reflect both of the following: -Washington’s transition to Common Core State Standards and high-quality assessments; -Washington’s vision that each student – including English language learners, students with disabilities, and students from historically underserved subgroups- engages in rigorous content and graduates prepared to engage in the deeper learning essential for post-secondary success. Details on schools’ AMO targets and other achievement data can be found at www.spokaneparent.org.
