    Hello Parents and Students! 

    Thank you so much for your efforts during 4th quarter. It was a challenging time, but you rose to the challenge and were very successful. I am proud of your determination. 

    We don't know yet what school will look like this fall, but we are seeking parent input. Please complete this survey to voice your preferences for learning in the 2020-2021 school year.

    The calendar for the 2020-2021 school year has been finalized and approved and can be viewed here

    I will post more information as it becomes available. Please follow us on social media and check back frequently for updates. It is also a good idea for you to make sure your contact information is updated with the school.

    Tracy Jane (Weidel)

    2019-2020 Course Description: 
    Our reading intervention class is called Literacy Power Hour.  Some schools call it reading intervention, developmental reading, or Read 180.  Students who have additional literacy needs will have a double-dose of literacy. They will take my class in addition to the standard core English Language Arts class. My class will be differentiated to meet the individual needs of each student. We will focus on reading and writing skills, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and the simple joy of reading. We will use a variety of assessment tools to determine which students are a best fit for Literacy Power Hour. This year I am excited to welcome a second reading intervention teacher, Mr. Martin, to our team, who will assist in serving our students.
