In 1994 the language/literacy needs of our students were addressed via the Extended/Enrichment program for grades 1-3 through which students requiring additional assistance as well as those needing enrichment received the support within a 30 minute block. Those in grades 4-9 received supports within the language classes. This program eventually morphed into our current Literacy and Numeracy Programs. Our defined literacy program combines reading and comprehending with writing and representing. Numeracy blocks blend basic math skills that require daily practice with focused math work that can be applied to real world contexts.
