Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Solley Elementary, a school that values of importance of building a positive learning environment for students, parents and the community.


    Collaboration is a key to our success. Our grade level teams meet weekly to plan lessons that are engaging and tailored to meet the needs of their students. Lessons are often differentiated based on student readiness, interest and learning styles, an initiative of our School Improvement Plan. Students have the opportunity to interact in pairs and small groups in a classroom environment that encourages sharing and respect for others. Another School Improvement Plan initiative is the utilization of technology to enhance instruction and improve student learning. The PTA and school are working together to purchase additional technology.


    Communication and parent involvement are cornerstones in making Solley a terrific school. We love our volunteers! Whether it’s providing assistance with students in the classroom or helping with the Chessie Book Club in the media center, the time and commitment by our volunteers is greatly appreciated by the staff and students.


    Throughout the year we have school events that encourage family participation. Many of the events are fun activities that encourage a love for reading, math, science or technology. Back to School Night, chorus and band concerts, Coffee with the Principal and monthly PTA Board meetings are other opportunities to learn more about Solley Elementary.


    Your child’s time in elementary school is the best time in your life!
