 School Year 2023-2024



In order to increase students' reading comprehension and expressive language skills, teachers will strengthen students' understanding of phonemic awareness and phonics.

Teachers will use explicit modeling and exemplars to strengthen students' knowledge and understanding of key ideas and details and evaluation skills.

Math Schoolwide Focus 

To increase student’s fluency and automaticity with numbers and operations.  Support students with making connections.

Mathematical Practice (MP1)-Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

Habits of Mind Focus - Persisting

Persevering with a task through to completion; remaining focused.  Searching for ways to reach your goal when stuck.  Not giving up.
