We will provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in all core academic areas in a supportive environment that enables students to meet the standards. The K-5grade teams will work with students and families to develop students’ reading and math abilities by:
Communicating with class newsletters, this compact, web page, email and encouraging classroom visits. We will have access to other staff members to ensure all aspects of the students’ learning are covered.
Teaching students and parents how to help the student by having them read aloud at home and keep a reading log. Students will keep a math log to explain, using evidence, how they solved their math problems.
Listening to students reading, and I will read orally to my students while modeling correct reading behaviors.
Setting and maintaining high expectations for myself and my students.
Providing parents opportunities to volunteer and participate in their child’s class, and to observe classroom activities.
