Turrill Year-Round Elementary School utilizes a research-based, balanced calendar approach to teaching students and operating an early fives through fifth grade elementary school. Students and staff at Turrill reduce the traditional summer vacation by attending school in the month of August. The month spent in August is then spread out during the school year with additional breaks from the traditional classroom experience. The extra weeks off during the school year are filled with volunteer intersession weeks created around a theme. Students and staff are in school the same number of days as traditional schools. The title "year-round" comes from the classification the state uses due to the start date being prior to Labor Day.

What's New
Third grade student reading groups chose a topic for informational reading. Each group made a poster with their ideas of what chapters would be in their reading books. Then they marked off each chapter as they found them in their books. Next they chose the chapter that most interested them to study and become experts […]
The fifth grade students are enjoying “Eggstravaganza.” The day was filled with activities like decorating eggs with dyes using candles, reading stories about Easter eggs, and experiments using raw versus hard boiled eggs. They had a fun Friday full of eggs! By Donald, Jackson, Noah, and Liam
Fourth grade students in Mrs. VanHorn’s class are working on informational reading and writing and social studies state projects. They are practicing their research, technology, and map reading skills by constructing wall maps and time lines of their respective states.
Independent readers choose the set of books they will read and discuss together. This small group of three or four students is reading at or above grade level. They meet twice each week and share their findings with the teacher. Book Talks are rewarding and informative.
Turrill Elementary hosted an open house on March 27th. Mr. Janczarek shared a presentation on the research based benefits our year-around calendar provides to students.  He along with many teachers and staff members were available to welcome new families and answer questions.
