Sewell Elementary School at a Glance

Sewell Logo
Sewell Elementary provides exceptional learning opportunities in science, technology, math, language arts, social studies, the arts and physical education. We are an Opening Minds through the Arts (OMA) Gold school, which means that each grade level has a particular art form that is academically integrated into each grade’s curriculum. Kindergarten has an instrumental trio which introduces music, first grade creates an opera, second grade dance/movement, third grade recorders, fourth grade beginning orchestra, and fifth grade has a choice between advanced orchestra and beginning band. We also have an AIS (Arts Integration Specialist) who collaborates with the classroom teachers to integrate art forms into our standards-based curriculum.

Teachers provide physical education through a bi-weekly structured recess program.  Sewell also offers an after-school sports program, which has won many trophies, with teams including cross-country, track and field, basketball and softball.
