K-4 Instructional Program
The elementary education program of the district provides a solid foundation for later learning. Children are assigned to a grade level teacher for core subjects and, in addition, are instructed by certified physical education, music, and computer teachers beginning in kindergarten. Students visit the library at least once a week for instruction and to check out books. Art is integrated throughout the curriculum. Elementary counselors provide classroom instruction on social skills and character education, in addition to providing guidance and individual counseling.
We use a balanced approach to literacy and focus on the essential skills recommended by the National Reading Panel: phonological awareness, alphabetic principle, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Our reading series, StoryTown, is complimented by guided reading groups wherein all students can read at their instructional level.
