During the school year, all students are eligible to participate in certain health services. Health screenings including vision, hearing, and scoliosis will be conducted at various grade levels. Parents will be notified if these screenings indicate need for follow-up.
If a parent does not wish for his/her child to participate in these screenings, the parent needs to send a written note to the Principal on a yearly basis requesting that the child be excluded from participation.
Health services begin the first week of school. Parents are encouraged to call the school if they have health concerns regarding their child. The visiting school health nurses come once a month to provide health counseling, health education, and assistance with medical referrals and necessary follow-up.
TV Broadcast Studio: WPKN - Our studio televises live announcements each morning. Student recognition is featured. Students operate the entire show with supervision from the media specialist. The crew consists of anchors, camera, sound and video mixer technicians, announcers, and assistants.
School improvement funds are used to provide remedial programs to non-proficient reading students after school. Several teachers also offer tutorial programs on their own for non-proficient students as a way to assist students meeting state standards.
We also offer several enrichment clubs for varying periods of time during the year including the Good News Club.
We open our reading lab up to level 2 students before school for remedial reading and remedial math. The instructional computer lab is open to students before school to participate in the Accelerated Reading program. Students in grades 3-5 who need enrichment in reading are able to utilize the KidBiz3000 program at home to extend their skills in reading non-fiction materials. Our tutorial program will offer Read Naturally, Voyager and SuccessMaker with the goal of having no level 1 or 2 students at the time of testing in the spring.
