Hello Spring Creek Families! Welcome to another school year in which the Title program can support your children in their success. Our program will provide services for grades K-5 this year. Typically your child will receive 20-25 minutes of additional reading instruction each day. We have completed our Fall benchmark assessments and Title groups are well underway. As parents and guardians you will be informed of any services your child receives at school. We find children benefit from the small reading groups we are able to provide.

This year we are happy to have our current staff including Mrs. Suzie Johnson and Miss Amanda Clark. Miss Amanda is on a family leave until later in the year. We have Mrs. Henriett Bons as her substitute, who is very familiar with our school and students. Our Educational Assistants have a breadth of talents and skills. Most importantly, they love and care about our students. 

Last month we had our Family Math Night and it was very fun. Families enjoyed learning about the Dreambox program their children use to reinforce their math skills. We also played card games with a deck of playing cards. Please mark your calendars now for our annual Duck Into a Book literacy celebration on Thursday, March 2, 2018. It will be great fun that your family won’t want to miss. 

We need to provide you the opportunity to learn about the various Title programs that are offered not only at our school but across the school district. If you are interested, please go to this link http://www.4j.lane.edu/instruction/title/ and check out the slideshows online. These programs are Parent and Family Engagement, Title II, Title III, and Title X and serve various populations of students in our district.

If you are doing any Fall cleaning, please keep in mind that we love to give away gently used books in our Free Book Friday program. We also provide small toys as prizes. All donations are welcome. Please continue to encourage your children to read and feel free to use me as a resource for questions and materials. We have some wonderful books in the library for parent checkout that you can read with your child. The series is called We Can Read and is available behind the checkout counter in our school library. You can contact me

by calling Spring Creek at 541-790-4801 or mitchell@4j.lane.edu.

Conferences are coming the week of November 20th. I hope to attend as many as possible, please let your child’s homeroom teacher and me know if you’d like me to be present. Hope to see you then!

Dayna Mitchell, Title 1 Teacher/Coordinator
