If you use a literature-based approach to reading, how do you reach phonics?
The phonics skills are integrated into guided reading lessons, writing workshop consultations, and spelling word families. Teaching the phonemic awareness in this way, allows students to learn to apply the skills learned in the classroom, which increases their reading proficiency.
How can I learn more about the educational options available to my child?
Pamphlets are available describing the options available at the elementary school. If you need additional information, contact the elementary school principal at (715) 693-2810.
How do I learn about activities and events in the school?
