Pull-out Reading Program

Next week, I will begin pulling out the first grade students in order to strengthen the foundation of your child's reading ability. Phonological awareness aids the development of our ability to read. If there is a weakness or this ability is not fully developed there could be a struggle when it comes to reading and spelling.

The students will be pulled out of the classroom twice a week during reading times. The session will not be long, basically 20 to 30 minutes. The sessions will continue until the skills are mastered. If skills are mastered and the students are succeeding within the classroom they will be dismissed.

During the time away from the classroom, the teacher is not to administer tests, teach new information, or assign missed work as homework. If this occurs please contact myself and Sr. Anne or Sr. Beverly.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school (ext 5595) or email (
