Welcome to the Title 1 page.
Title I is a program designed to be a support program to eligible students for the purpose of assisting students in acquiring strong, basic reading and/or math skills. Updates on helpful hints for learning strategies will be posted here for our students and their families.
I would like to keep our parents and students informed with some helpful hints, ideas and suggestions in reading and math. I am beginning with some reading ideas and hints to start with for you.
The following are recommendations for families and reading from the Keystone State Reading Association:
- Select books that appeal to yoru child’s interest level.
- Use the five-finger test to help yoru child select books appropriate for his/her reading level. Encourage your child to choose a book that looks interesting, open it to any page and read. Each time your child comesto an unknown word, a finger is raised. Five unknown words on a page indicates that the book is probably too difficult for independent reading. Save the book to use at a later time or include it as a read aloud selection.

Parent’s Right-to-Know – No Child Left Behind
