Fred Armon Toomer Elementary
Home of Mandarin Chinese
Fred Armon Toomer Elementary School established in 1968, serving children in the historic East Lake and Kirkwood neighborhoods since 2012, is a terrific place for every student to learn and exceed expectations. Raising standards, enhancing curriculum and instruction, and improving learning environments is the commitment the faculty and staff makes to each student and parent. Everyone in the school community continues to work together, to educate Toomer’s students and obtain the status of a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
Instruction is rigorous, engaging, student-centered, and standards-based. Making global connections, Toomer Elementary School's students are developing a second language in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish, and incorporating technology skills across the curriculum. Every child is guided to reach their potential, in a supportive and positive environment. Enthusiasm, confidence, and creativity is encouraged and cultivated in Toomer's "Cougars," to develop needed skills for a lifetime of success.

CRCT Resources:Study Guides for 3rd-5th Graders
Please visit the website above, to access CRCT Study Guides (for 3rd - 5th graders) that focus on the knowledge and skills that are tested on the Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT). The content tested on the CRCT is based on Georgia’s state mandated content standards, which describe what all students should know, understand, and be able to do. These documents are intended as a student resource. Overviews, test-taking strategies, activities, quizzes, and solutions/explanation of answers are provided. Families are encouraged to use these resources with their children, to help our children prepare for the CRCT. Thank you families for your support in preparing your child(ren) for the upcoming CRCT!
