Points of Pride
Welcome to Del Valle Elementary School, where innovative learning with 21st Century values of excellence in teaching promotes and challenges all students to achieve their full potential, be academically prepared, socially responsible and self-motivated to continue learning at a higher level.
We are now a PBIS Campus(Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports). Our School-Wide expectations are:
We obtained a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or LEED certification as of September 2013. This certification provides "a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance solutions." This allows us to focus on 21st century, high-level learning for all of our students.
Our Teachers are all trained in "Whole Brain Teaching". This is a philosophy that allows for Teachers and Students to truly form a partnership in learning. We encourage students to discuss topics and share their knowledge with one another. We teach our students to have courage and grit. Showing kindness and being leaders is also a big part of being in a Whole Brain classroom.
School clubs include our Drama Club, Guitar Club, and our TECH Team which includes our Discoverbots, RAK(Random Acts of Kindness Club) and our Video Announcement Team.
Our Discoverbot Robotics Team is the First Elementary Vex Robotics Team in El Paso to qualify for the VEX Worlds Competition. They had the honor of competing in Louisville, Kentucky in 2017 and look forward to building upon that success this year.
Del Valle Elementary is one of the first elementary schools in the El Paso area with 1:1 devices for ALL students K-5. This gives a device to all 450+ of our students. Our K-2 students receive iPads, and our 3-5 students receive Chromebooks. This provides access to a variety of school and district programs and ensures all students have equitable access to technology in their classroom.
We are proud to be a part of the Del Valle High School feeder pattern. We are OFOD: "One Family, One Destiny".
