Our K-5 Reading Curriculum is based on a balanced literacy approach, which exposes students to the foundations of early literacy and rich literature.  Our program includes components of the five big areas of reading: Phonemic Awareness, Phonological Awareness, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension.  We have a variety of resources to meet our students' needs.  Each building also has a leveled bookroom and classroom libraries.

Classroom teachers across grade levels met to discuss our philosophies of reading instruction and created essential questions and posters for each grade, provided in the links below:
