School Success Plan-CREW

Please see below for a copy of our School Success Plan. Our focus will be on reading and our lofty goal is to have 85% of all of our students reading at or above grade level.

We need your support to reach this goal - please consider volunteering to read with our students at the school. We will provide you with the training required and reading packages for the children. Even thirty minutes a week can make a huge difference.
