The Wheeler Avenue Elementary school has a unique and rich history in the Valley Stream community, founded upon a dedication to students. Our focus at Wheeler Avenue Elementary is to provide a diverse and equitable education through our curriculum, character-building opportunities, emphasizing social-emotional learning, and excellence for all.
Our team is deeply committed to the success of each of our scholars. Values, purpose, and excellence are foundational pillars that drive our work. Our instructional practices, assessments, and resources align with our vision and focus on creating successful and motivated learners through robust learning opportunities. The curriculum encourages students to explore the world around them through inquiry-based learning opportunities that empower students to take risks by developing questions that demonstrate their inquisitiveness. The various threads of our work are intended to create individuals who possess the critical skills necessary for success, wherever their journeys take them in the future.
We strive to provide the best for every child within a caring environment where everyone has a sense of belonging. Our mascot, Chirpy the Blue Jay, embodies these values through the acronym CHIRP. CHIRP stands for courteous, honest, inspiring, respectful, and proud. At Wheeler Avenue, we focus on providing character-building and social-emotional learning opportunities through our mascot and themes of the month. Students engage with authentic literature where these values are taught. We hope these values can be applied throughout the community, not just in school.
A strong home-school connection will set the stage for a child to grow up with a love of learning. We pride ourselves on forging new and strong relationships with families, students, and the community to achieve our goals. We want our families to feel that we exist to provide quality education and enhance the community of Valley Stream. Together, we will continue to make Wheeler an exceptional school community. As your Principal, I am excited to partner with you to usher in this new generation of learners to the future.
