These programs such as Guided Reading, The Write Traits, Spelling and Fry, Handwriting Without Tears and Levelled Literacy Intervention help students develop a consistent language when they are learning to read and write.

Students get to go outside and play during the first part of their lunch and they come in and eat in the second half of their lunch.

One event, which helps create this atmosphere, is Wembley Elementary School’s monthly assembly. The Classroom Students of the Month Award is an opportunity to recognize students from each classroom who excels or who have shown growth in a particular area. Every month, a classroom showcases their talent in front of the school.
Wembley Elementary School also recognizes students with their Gotcha awards. Students caught doing something good get a coupon that is put in their classroom bucket for a weekly draw. Then all the coupons are brought to the office and put in a bucket for a school wide monthly draw. At the end of the year we put all the coupons for the year into a container and we draw yearly prizes.
