Please take a minute and make sure your child is buckled. We have noticed an increase in students not buckling when leaving school. Thank you so much!

Note to Parents & Guardians Regarding Devices

There has been an increase in students bringing their Smart Watches to school. As per our handbook, all devices including Smart Watches should be powered off and in backpacks. We appreciate the family support regarding this policy.

Early literacy encompasses so many components! Each month, we will explain one piece of the puzzle, and offer tips for supporting your child at home. Next up, high frequency words.


What are high frequency words?

  • A sight word is any word that the brain recognizes automatically. High frequency words are words that are especially high leverage because of how often they are found in text.

  • Knowing as few as 13 of the 109 most frequently occurring words unlocks 25 to 50 percent of all texts written for children. (Burkins & Yates, Shifting the Balance, 2021)

What are we doing?

  • Daily instruction using Fundations

  • Explicit, systematic, multisensory instruction (skywriting, gel boards)

  • Teaching for mastery through repeated exposure and embedded practice

How can you support your child?

  • The Really Great Reading website has a great resource of HFW videos.

  • Google '109 Power Words' where you can download a list of HFW that comprise 50% of the words found in children’s texts. (Feel free to email Mrs. Mylett or Mrs. Gable for a digital or paper version of the list).

  • READ to and with your child.
