Welcome to MacNaughton Elementary

Where Our Bucket Filling Students Help To Make Our School A Happy Place!      

Our School

At MacNaughton Elementary, we provide a safe, positive, learning environment with differentiated instruction, where kids can grow and learn at their own pace. Our students enjoy a technology class, music, physical education, and art education class every week.  We also offer Title I Services for added Reading and Math instruction. All students receive a free breakfast to start their day.

Our Classrooms

Each classroom is equipped with a highly qualified and passionate teacher.  Our teachers show up every day ready to care for and teach our eager students!  Meet our classroom teachers, and check out their classrooms!

Special Programs

MacNaughton has a well-organized parent booster program.  The Boosters fund carnivals, field trips, a Santa Shop, and books for Reading Month.  The teachers feel appreciated and the students feel the excitement for education that this group provides.  MacNaughton has a Teacher Assistant Team that meets monthly to discuss students in need of special assistance.  We also have a Crisis Team, a School Improvement Team, and a Positive Behavior Team.

Support Staff

MacNaughton has many professionals throughout the building that support teachers and students alike.  These professionals are in place to make sure all student needs are met. We have a Curriculum Coordinator who visits every classroom once a week. This teacher provides hands on lessons that support the classroom teachers' lessons and enables students to use higher level thinking skills.  We have an occupational therapist, a physical therapist, a speech therapist, a nurse, a reading specialist, and a social worker ready to assist students with their individual needs.

On behalf of staff at MacNaughton Elementary, we invite you to come and visit us and experience firsthand the great people and programs we offer.


Julie Scott, Principal
