Fairfield Elementary is excited about our improved approach to helping students grow into good readers!

 

Since Fairfield Elementary joined the Ohio Early Literacy Pilot Project, Mrs. Jana Hodson has been our Elementary Literacy Coach. Her main work has been to help our teachers apply their in-depth learning of the science of reading in their work with students. In addition, Mrs. Hodson has been directly helping as many students as possible to strengthen their reading skills.

 

This year we've made even more improvements! Mrs. Kayla Roy and Mrs. Kristy Watson have joined our Reading Support Team as Reading Specialists! They will be working with individual and small groups of students to help them improve their reading skills. Mrs. Hodson will continue coaching the teachers as they apply their professional learning and our new reading curriculum and coach the Reading Specialists in their new work. Additionally, she will continue working with some students to build their reading skills.

 

Please join us in cheering on our dedicated Literacy Coach and Reading Specialists!

Each day of the week, one student from each grade level (K-5) will be selected to come to the office and lead the elementary classrooms in the Pledge of Allegiance over the intercom.   What a GREAT way to start the day!!   Check out the Pledge leaders in our Photo Gallery.
