Our Schools

Invention Convention!


During Reading Center time, our students build their literacy skills by independently exploring engaging learning activities, while the teacher works with small groups of students.

Ms. Thompson’s second-grade classroom students are engrossed in books, word puzzles and story illustrations throughout the room.  This enabled Ms. Thompson to invite pairs of students to work with her on their addition skills. Thanks to Jennifer Wu for the story and photos from the district's Facebook page!

Welcome To The Captain William G. Shoemaker Elementary School

Welcome back. Our staff has been working hard in preparation for what promises to be a great year. Let's kick off the school year with a renewed determination to create the most positive and challenging learning environment for our students. For our part, we will offer a first rate educational experience and in return ask that you ensure your child's regular attendance. We also ask that you make a genuine effort to be involved in your son's and daughter's school throughout the year. Let's work together so that everyone wins: Parents, teachers, and students.

Patricia Riley

Our Mission Statement

Shoemaker School is a stimulating academic environment that will enable all students to experience and enjoy learning, respect diversity, and develop life-long skills that will enable them to function safely and productively in a democratic society. We will strive for excellence in the attainment of the system goals. We will provide a learning climate that will challenge students to reach their full potential. Technology will be integrated into all aspects of teaching and learning. The media center will be incorporated into the daily cultural and academic activities of the students. Community and parental involvement will be encouraged to develop a sense of pride and community among faculty, students, families and neighbors.
