As part of the Poudre School District, we strive to enrich our students’ classroom experiences through a broad base of knowledge, rich vocabulary, and integrated curriculum. Students focus on Language Arts, Mathematics, Geography, World History, American History, Science, Music, Art, Physical Education, and Technology.

Bethke fully implements the Core Knowledge curriculum in grades K–5. Focusing on 21st century higher level thinking skills, teachers integrate interactive technology into instruction on a daily basis. Multi-sensory phonics, small-group guided reading instruction, and Core Knowledge novel studies complete the reading instruction.

Everyday Math is used in all grades with grade acceleration in math in grades 3–5 for those who qualify. A reading specialist and gifted and talented teacher work with those requiring additional interventions.

Macmillan/McGraw-Hill's comprehensive reading/language arts program, Treasures, offers proven tools and strategies for helping teachers give students what they need to succeed. High-quality literature, coupled with explicit instruction and ample practice, insures all students have what they need to learn and grow as lifelong readers and writers.
