- District goal for Literacy and Math
- Literacy: The goal is to have all kids to grade level in both Math and English. For all students to have a deep understanding. In Middle school, in MSTE, they are working on stop Motion. They practice in small groups. They will get to put a movie together at the end of the unit. In Music, the 7 and 8’s write about the music they listen to and how the music connects to them. In Kindergarten the grade 8’s has partnered with the K students. It is a beautiful bond between old and new. Kindergarteners get to listen to an older read. They have taken leaf and letter walks.
