About Fireside

Fireside Elementary is home to super SPARK students in Pre-K through 6th grade. Our caring staff is exceptional at meeting the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students. Each grade level incorporates technology to engage our students and enhance the learning environment. Fireside is also home to the district’s gifted program which includes both self-contained classrooms and gifted cluster classrooms. Students are surrounded by a rich core knowledge curriculum, 21st-century learning opportunities, and rigorous math and English language arts curriculum implemented by committed and passionate teachers. Our students benefit from our Art, PE, Music, Band or Strings, STEM, and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) special area classes. Our students also participate in Junior Achievement, Student Council, Running Club, Mustang Patrol, Art Masterpiece and Fireside’s Digital Citizenship Program. We have a parent community that is supportive, active and a vital part of our culture.

At Fireside Elementary, we are Safe, Positive, Appropriate, Responsible, and Kind!

We are Fireside!
