Math talks at Arthur Elementary is a way for students to verbally share their mental math solving skills with one another. The concept is less about right or wrong, it more about group building, hearing others ideas and seeing a more efficient way to solve a problem.#OurStoriesCRCSD

Catherine Metz,
First Grade Teacher,
Arthur 
Elementary

One of my favorite parts about teaching here at Arthur is the families and the kids.  Arthur really has changed over the last 16 years, I have been here.  I love getting to see the changes… the variety of people that I work with. Our kids are amazing and even though we have changed; we still have high expectations for our kids and expect them to learn and grow and expect all kids to learn.

I like learning everything in 1st Grade! My favorite thing to learn is math because we work with numbers. Numbers are fun! - Donovan, 1st Grader.
