English Language Arts
Literacy is an area in which we strive for excellence. Strategies to improve student fluency, accuracy, comprehension, and vocabulary are infused into all subject areas, but none more than the English Language Arts Classroom. Through a variety of teaching methods in our English Language Arts classes, including Daily 5 and Reading and Writing Workshop, students are encouraged to develop deeper understandings of language.
When students struggle, interventions are put in place to help students improve and excel. Treating every student as a gift from God helps us to place the focus on assisting all students when they need help and celebrating with them when they succeed. We are very proud of our literacy program and encourage you to learn more by watching this video.
