The Warwick Neck Elementary School Art department creates rich and engaging experiences and opportunities for all learners. A successful art program not only fosters many areas of growth in myriad ways, it helps students see and understand visual arts in different ways. Students begin to develop an aesthetic sense and understanding of their own design and see the potential in their own skills. They forge a sense of visual literacy that promotes individuality and critical thinking skills.
At Warwick Neck Elementary, we want our students to experience the reward and joy of art that is both technically and spiritually expressive.
This year elementary science will be taught by the classroom teachers.
The goal of elementary science is to provide young learners with an introduction to our natural world geared toward promoting both a literacy and an enthusiasm that will engage them throughout their lives. “Hands on” teaching methods are applied as a means to convey the basic skills necessary for scientific processes and investigation. Teachers present an approach centered on observation, measuring, and classification to foster the students progress in acquiring skills which will help them apply concepts and utilize that knowledge in a meaningful way in their future years of education.

Music education is a vital part of Warwick Neck Elementary’s curriculum. Young learners show innumerable benefits from the exposure to music and the concepts of music making and music theory. Music education programs help young learners scholastic development in myriad ways as students not only take inspiration from the music but see lessons from other classes – math, science, english, social studies – echoed in song. They develop appreciation for human potential in the musicians they hear and seek to find and realize their own musical gifts.

Federal and State Regulations that require the district to provide a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment for students with disabilities govern the Warwick Public School System. The Special Education Department has in place a referral and evaluation process that addresses each child who might be in need of Special Education services. When a determination is made that a child qualifies for Special Education Services, there are a range of services and programs to meet the unique needs of each child.

The Warwick Neck Elementary Health & Physical Education class provides a safe, respectful and friendly environment for students to learn healthy habits, in active, fun and challenging ways. We approach student health and physical wellness as part of a continuum that effects a child’s ability to learn. The promotion of healthy physical and mental habits, along with cooperation and sportsmanship, help our students develop skills that benefit their development in the classroom and, indeed, all areas of life. Health & Physical Education is a crucial part of every child’s development.
We are always available to consult with parents and guardians, and enjoy working as a team to foster a safe and respectful school climate at Warwick Neck Elementary.
