Message From Marilyn Rockey, Principal
Gold Ribbon School Award
We all have so much to celebrate! Our school was honored in a special ceremony on May 5th! We have been given the distinction and honor of being a State of California Gold Ribbon School! We have received this honor due to our specifically focused work in the areas of reading and writing.
We call our multifaceted teaching practice REACH. This practice features a Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop model, with additional support through a Walk-To-Learn RTI program, Intensive Literacy Intervention, and Accountable Talk. We are closing the achievement gap as our students attain California’s high reaching Common Core Content and Performance Standards.
Our goal is to REACH each student!
