Cushing Elementary

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

MRS. REBECCA TOETZ

Cushing Elementary is home to 458 4K through fifth grade students. Located in the community of Delafield our school is proud of the variety of opportunities we provide for students within and outside of the school day. Our mission is to provide a strong, educational foundation for all children by promoting an excitement for learning through challenging experiences in a safe, flexible, positive environment. We value our partnership with family, staff, and community. Our school has a highly qualified teaching staff that believes strongly in the power of professional learning communities and professional growth to promote student achievement. 

One important philosophy that I try to convey to all students and staff is a growth mindset.  In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work- - -brains and talent are just the starting point.  This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.  Our students are taught that with hard work and a belief in themselves, they can accomplish many things.  The “growth mindset” comes from Stanford University’s Dr. Carole Dweck.  All students will hear this message from me many times throughout the year at assemblies, read alouds in their classrooms, and morning meetings.  I am so proud of the accomplishments our Cushing students make in all areas. 

Cushing recently received a PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports) School of Recognition award from the state of Wisconsin for implementing the elements of PBIS with fidelity.  Our students know our school expectations in all environments:

  • Be Safe    

  • Be Kind

  • Do Your Job

We have a system in place for when students need reminders and reteaching.  We have monthly assemblies to acknowledge and celebrate our students’ hard work at following our expectations. 

At Cushing, we use student data to meet the needs of all learners.  Our staff meet on a regular basis to examine academic and behavioral data to create groups and  learning opportunities for interventions and enrichments.  We have “Star Time” for 30 minutes per day and this year we will focus extra energy on enrichments, as well as interventions.  These interventions and enrichments are analyzed every six to eight weeks and instructional adjustments are made to create the best opportunities for students to grow. 

Personalized learning and Workshop teaching are models that Cushing uses.  Our classrooms have strong reading and writing practices that include focused whole group mini-lessons, guided reading, strategy groups, an increased volume of independent reading, reading connected to content areas and writing, small group instruction, and conferencing.  Students have choices within their reading and writing workshop time, as well.
