Bricker Elementary was built in 1980 and named after Wayne Bricker, a former Harrison School District 2 Superintendent. Bricker Elementary is committed to the achievement of every student. This is visible through the instruction, programs, and community connections for the students. Afterschool, Bricker students can participate in Math Tutoring, Intramural Sports, Student Council, Literacy Tutoring, and Science Club. Bricker Elementary also has active involvement from the local community. The school is partnered with an Adopt-a-Soldier unit, 4-42 FA, housed at Fort Carson. Soldiers come to Bricker to provide assistance for afterschool events, lunch buddies, and tutoring. Century Link and Care and Share have partnered to provide twenty back packs of non-perishable food on a weekly basis for Bricker families. Bricker Elementary also partners with a local Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troop.
Bricker Elementary continues its forward momentum for improving student achievement. Throughout the year, we rely on our school action plan as focal point of our efforts towards improving student achievement.
Bricker Elementary is an integrated neighborhood school with resources that include pre-kindergarten, all-day kindergarten and a before- and after-school program. Bricker's highly qualified educational staff uses Write Tools for effective writing, McMillan/McGraw-Hill "Treasures" Curriculum for reading and Envisions Curriculum for math.
We implemented the professional learning community model and provided staff with professional development opportunities in curriculum alignment, effective lesson objectives, student engagement, differentiated instruction, and best practices in reading. Administrators provided effective feedback through spot observations, formal observations, and summative evaluations. We value our high quality staff and provide additional hours of professional and leadership development.
