• Literacy Resources for Families

    Our goal is for all students to read at or above grade level by the end of 3rd grade. We want to empower all students to be lifelong learners equipped with the literacy skills needed to make meaning from text. Parents/guardians play an important role in supporting students. On this page, you will find resources designed to support literacy development at home.

    • Explore our core reading instruction materials, including Wit & Wisdom, Really Great Reading, and Heggerty
    • Discover practical tips and activities, including printable activities and interactive learning experiences to reinforce reading skills outside the classroom
    • Delve into the science of reading to gain insights into the research-backed strategies that underpin effective reading instruction. 
    • Stay connected with our community events, where families come together to celebrate literacy.

    Together, we can unlock the full potential of every student!
