Goal 1: Encourage well-rounded learning by providing a music program for all students. A portion of the teacher salary is funded through a grant from the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Foundation. While not a full-time position, these funds allow us to support a program that provides weekly lessons for students.
Goal 2: Provide phonics and reading support for students in the younger grades. We are implementing a phonics program called 95% Group designed to help fill any gaps in phonics understanding for young students. Land Trust funds provided the means to hire two 12-hour assistants to work directly with students.
Goal 3: Enrich student's school experiences though weekly engagement in physical education and activities in our STEM lab. (STEM is an acronym used to describe activities involving science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics.) We hired two PE assistants and two STEM assistants, each working 12 hours per week.
