Welcome to the Elkin Elementary School STAR Reading Program website. It is our goal to improve the overall reading ability of Elkin Elementary School students. To accomplish this goal, we use a variety of small group and whole class activities with instructional methods that are research-based and proven effective by experts in the field of remedial reading instruction.
Sandy Welborn is our STAR teacher. She holds a Master's Degree in Reading from Appalachian State University and has six years' experience as a Title I Reading Specialist.
We Believe in Parent Involvement!
At Elkin Elementary School, we welcome parents and community members to become involved in an array of activities. We believe partnerships with parents, as well as community members, are important steps that help ensure academic success for every child.
Therefore, a top priority for the staff and administrators is frequent parent involvement. To accomplish this goal, EES offers parent training sessions for state educational requirements, help with understanding academic content, and information on how to monitor a child's progress.
Invitations to include parents are made by email, newsletters, Alert Now Messgaes, the EES website, notes, student planners, parent-teacher conferences, telephone calls, PTA and parent nights. EES believes involved parents make successful students.
