May Overby Elementary School
The May Overby Elementary School staff welcomes you to May Overby. May Overby Elementary school is located at 612 SE 14th Avenue, Aberdeen, SD, across from the Northern State University campus and the Barnett Center. The school was built in 1958, and is named after a dedicated former teacher. May Overby Elementary is a family, service oriented school. The staff has the goal of establishing an atmosphere throughout the school in which children use responsibility, respect, and reasoning to ensure that our school is safe, secure, and a place where student learning is maximized. We feel students deserve the best learning environment possible so they can be successful as they grow. May Overby aims to emphasize life-long learning and we believe that schools and community must work together as partners in education.
May Overby has undergone two remodeling projects in the last seven years. The 2003 project included a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning system; new windows; and a new media center plus improvements to the playground and landscaping.
During the summer of 2009 eight rooms were added to the south wing of May Overby in order to accommodate the growth in our attendance area. Four general education classrooms, two Special Education rooms as well as art and music are located in the new addition. The rooms are nicely furnished and are a wonderful addition to our school. The transition from the old to new sections, both inside and out, is nearly seamless. The enrollment at May Overby is approximately 410 students in 17 classrooms which is an average of 24 students per classroom.
All classrooms at May Overby are equipped with SMART Boards to enhance the learning/teaching process. The students love to learn and interact with the SMART Boards as our teachers integrate this technology with traditional teaching methods.
We at May Overby feel our students receive an excellent education from a staff of highly trained and dedicated professionals by collaborating with great parents, supportive PTA, and of course, great students!
Visitors are always welcome at May Overby.
