Active Literacy

“There is no such thing as a child who hates to read;
there are only children who have not found the right book.” 
― Frank Serafini

We are committed to providing diverse opportunities for students to read widely and deeply, delve into important issues and ideas, ask questions, articulately discuss their learning, write academically about their learning, do research to find answers, conduct investigations, and present their learning and thinking to others. Our classrooms are framed around active and authenic literacy in alignment with the rigorous Common Core State Standards!

“There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world.
Love of books is the best of all.”
