Our students have been very excited about the new Garden Cart during lunch. We spent time practicing before we introduced these additional options to their main entree. We are so proud of the wonderful job they have done with this new addition.

What does Title I look like at the PELC?

Screening assessments are give to students the first week of school. This information helps the teachers determine which students need the most involvement in the reading boost program. Two full time certified Title I teachers, in conjunction with the classroom teachers, provide small group instruction targeting the areas the students need the most work in. An on-going assessment helps determine instructional needs and continuation of the program. Every six weeks teachers meet to review the results of these assessments and move students between groups depending upon their needs. Some students may need additional time or a second intervention to help them acquire the reading skill needed to be successful. Our Title I teachers at the PELC are Carol Aldrich and Melissa Monkman. We use an assessment called iReady in both reading and math. We also use a screening tool teachers created which checks for student knowledge of the alphabet, letter sounds and sight words. Together with classroom observations, teachers are able to determine the best placement for students as well as the needed curriculum to be taught.


Our students see Mr. Jenness three times a week for 30 minutes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On Tuesday and Thursday, our classroom teachers work on PE skills in the gym, on the playground, or in their classrooms.
