Our students are involved in a culture of literacy. They learn to access, gather and combine information from traditional print, digital media, and other forms of communication to truly understand what they’re reading. They think critically about what they read and apply themes to the real world. They communicate well by expressing ideas in different forms and by communicating with a style and language that suits different purposes and audiences.

Each teacher models reading and writing strategies, gives students guided practice and provides opportunities for independent reading and writing by connecting what they learn to real life.
