Homework time is also offered for children who wish to complete their homework before they go home.

What Makes Ed V. Baldwin Elementary Special?
The students experience at Ed V. Baldwin Elementary School is second to none. Here, the youngest members of our family will encounter remarkable people and participate in effective and challenging activities on a daily basis.
Varied Learning Experiences:
The education at EVBES extends beyond our school walls. Our students have taken field trips in various locations such as Fayetteville, Lumberton, Wilmington, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill.
We have an eclectic staff, which includes one doctor, three nationally board-certified teachers, and two professional actors, among the many talented staff at EVBES. All of our students are taught by highly qualified teachers. Nearly 50% of our teachers have 10 or more years of teaching experience. Our staff truly is a family; we have one mother-daughter pair on the team. We have only had 5 principals in our entire school’s history, and our current principal, Todd Yardis, was a teacher here for many years as well.
Our school works to include technology whenever possible, in an attempt to prepare our pupils for the web-based world in which they live. Every classroom has at least two internet connected computers, an interactive whiteboard, and a digital document camera. Our school is piloting a tech-based classroom model, and we are integrating a real-time, interactive, student-engagement system into some of our rooms.
Creating Model Citizens:
Baldwin Elementary sets high standards for our students both academically and behaviorally. We use the “Positive Behavior Intervention & Support” Behavior Management plan, which is a school-wide system that addresses behavioral issues in a positive manner. Through this program, students are rewarded for their positive behavior with tokens that can then be redeemed for a number of prizes. These include toys and trinkets, but also experience opportunities, such as helping in the media center, having lunch with the principal, or other off-campus activities.
Diverse Teaching Methods:
The learning is varied at EVBES. Students in 4th and 5th grade are given a taste of the schedule they will experience in middle school. They are team-taught, meaning they switch classes during the day to receive instruction from different teachers. Some teachers also “loop” with their students, meaning the boys and girls will have the same teacher and classmates in successive years. We have tutoring and remediation sessions scheduled into the structure of the school day, to minimize out-of-school and after-school time for these interventions.
Our student body is very culturally diverse. We have children from Mexico, India, Cuba, Ghana, Yemen, Brazil, Poland, Ethiopia, Italy, Cambodia, and many other countries. In total, 5 of the 7 continents are represented among our kids..........................................................................................................................................
