About

Naomi Elementary School is located east of the city limits of LaFayette, Georgia, in the Naomi community. The community has a rich history with a church and school located at its heart. It enrolls approximately 400 students in Pre-K through 5th grade.

Naomi Elementary School is on the path to becoming Naomi Elementary School of the Arts. What does that mean? It means that in addition to the basic curriculum of reading, language arts, math, science, social studies, art, and physical education, our teachers strategically plan lessons to include a form of art into their classroom instruction. This art integration may be seen in the form of music, dance, acting, design, or painting. Not only do our students enjoy the additional art exposure, but research has also proven that it enhances emotions and brain function.

 

At Naomi Elementary School, we are also very aware of the changing culture of our students and how much they gravitate toward technology. Because of the interest level of our students and the demand of technology in the 21st century workforce, various instructional tools (such as Moby Max, BrainPop, BrainPop Jr., More Starfall, RazKids, Head Sprout, Braining Camp, Google Classroom and Sum Dog) for early and engaging learning are provided for our students. In addition to these online resources, our teachers and students benefit from having a large amount of technology at their fingertips. Each classroom is supplied with a SmartBoard, document camera, and iPads/Chromebooks to help integrate technology into the learning experience.

 

We have an amazing after school care program called ASPIRE (After School Program Infusing Recreation and Education). Our students love this program because it keeps them on their toes by including movies, snacks, homeroom/tutoring, outside play, inside play, computer lab, and STEAM center activities daily until 6PM.

We also have a variety of after school clubs that meet once or twice a week. Some of our clubs are ensemble, dance, storytelling, technology, yearbook, drama, and coding. We feel that these clubs are great for our students because it helps our students develop a sense of belonging and teaches them life skills such as commitment, decision-making, and teamwork.
