Reading

How do we become better readers? We become better readers the same way we improve other skills:  We practice! Let us ensure reading success for every child by encouraging students to read independently at a reading level that is appropriate for them and reading with them on a daily basis.

Reading Goals:

  • To improve reading skills
  • To provide an opportunity for all students to read independently 
  • To ensure success for each student as a reader
  • To build student's self-confidence 
  • To inspire a love of reading
  • To develop lifelong learners
