Our Vision:

We believe that reading is vital to the success of all our students.  Reading is a lifelong skill that needs to be promoted daily and across all content areas.  All students from remedial to enrichment benefit from exposure to reading skills to be a productive citizen.  We believe that by creating a stimulating learning environment we can challenge our students to be successul in reading, writing and speaking.
