My Students

We are a Title I school with 45% of our population on free or reduced lunch. We are one of the largest elementary schools in the state of Oregon. Along with our federal designation of being a Title I school we have created a trauma informed culture where children feel safe, respected and valued. Our staff strives to enrich their teaching practices and improve outcomes for our community.

One in five students have a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin called DYSLEXIA.

Over the past two years, some of our staff have attended dyslexia training as per the federal guidelines. We discovered some new and informed teaching strategies as well as materials that help us reach those struggling readers. Studies show that the way to retrain the brain and speak to neurodiversity is to make connections using systematic, sequenced explicit teaching

Reading Is A Snap

Help me give my students SnapWords by Child 1st Publications, LLC.

The cards are designed specifically for children who need visuals and movements to train their brain with a multi-sensory approach.

My Project

SnapWords will be used by our teachers in small reading groups to support acquisition of sight words. Research shows incorporating a multi-sensory approach engages students with learning disabilities and second language learners. Each card has a picture, sight word and a movement to capture a student's attention.

We are growing great readers and leaders for tomorrow.

By donating to our project we can supply all of our first and second grade classrooms with a complete set. We also can support our ELL and reading teachers with a set of their own to reach even more students.

Thank you for consideration.
