of our specific strategies include:
Super Specials each month to provide teachers with an
additional block of time for collaboration, monthly
professional development, Paraprofessionals assisting in 1st
grade classes during the reading block, Specialists
assisting in select classes during free periods, students
using Study Island and First in Math computer based
programs, increasing instructional time to 120 minutes for
reading and 120 minutes for math, extended day tutoring for
select students, as well as a laser sharp focus on student
and staff attendance.
We appreciate your continued support of your child in
our educational journey together.
