GAPS / GAES Special Education Teachers

The Greencastle-Antrim Elementary School was built in 1981 and houses grades three, four and five. Elementary classrooms are grouped by mixed ability in all grades. We place a great deal of emphasis on math, reading and writing. We use various methods of teaching reading to best meet the different needs of all children. Students experiencing difficulty in reading may receive services from reading specialists, reading aides and specialized remedial computer programs.

Students also study science, social studies and health. In addition, students receive instruction in art, music, physical education, library and computers technology. Fifth grade students may elect to participate in band and/or chorus. Instrumental music lessons are provided in the fifth grade.


A Message from Our Principal
by Chad Stover

At Greencastle-Antrim Elementary School we strive to create a positive safe environment that puts Children First. Our character education program promotes Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. Following these basic principles will create a path for our students to become positive and productive citizens in our community.

We encourage all parents to be involved with their children, to learn how they may support our school and to volunteer in our classrooms. We are committed to the continual improvement of education for our students, and we invite you to join us in a partnership that will guide all of our students to reach their full potential. Close ties and open communication between school and home are clearly essential to our work.

Whatever we do as educators to guide, shape and motivate children can only supplement the loving commitment, interest and instruction you provide at home. Thank you for your hard work, and never underestimate the precious role you play in the success of your child.
