A School of Readers!

We make reading a priority.  It is our goal to teach non-readers to read and assist readers in developing their reading skills.  We ask that all students read at least 30 minutes each night.  During this time, students can read silently, read to a parent or sibling or have a parent read to them.  Our library is also open from 8:00a.m.-8:30a.m. each day for parents to come to the library with their child to select reading books.  A child that reads is a child that succeeds!  Help us make reading an important part of your child’s day!




Our Academic Goals

For the 2016-2017 school year, we have established 4 goals to help our students succeed:

1.  Increase the percentage of students meeting or exceeding standards in Math and RLA by 20% as measured on the spring 2017 SBAC.

2.  Eliminate the achievement gap for English Learners in RLA and Math.

3.  All students will be reading for pleasure at home and at school to achieve/exceed their grade level fluency goal.

4.  Provide a safe learning environment.
