Welcome to Thoreau Park Title I

  • Dear Parent(s),
    Thoreau Park Elementary is a Title 1 school. This means that our school receives federal allocations to
    aid instruction for all students. Title 1 schoolwide programs generally offer smaller class sizes, additional
    teachers and/or targeted materials to help support reading and/or math skills.
    At Thoreau Park, students receiving Title 1 support (K-2) will benefit from extra instruction in the five
    essential areas of reading: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and text comprehension.
    During distance learning, this support will be provided using teacher guided best-practice activities. When
    students return to in-person instruction, our Title team will utilize the Reading Mastery program to support
    our struggling readers. This evidence-validated program helps students master the essential decoding and
    fluency skills needed to support comprehension. If your child qualifies for additional reading intervention, you
    will be notified by our Title 1 staff.
    Whether we are working remotely or in-person, we are committed to helping our Thoreau Park students
    become lifelong readers and writers. We know Thoreau Park is an “AWESOME” place to learn, and we look
    forward to sharing our Panther Pride - Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!
