Literacy for Learning, Living, Leading (L4GA)

We will do this by: 

  •  Bringing stakeholders together for collaboration 
  •  Focusing on the whole child 
  •  Providing a personalized approach to literacy 
  •  Providing professional development for our staff 
  •  Providing supports for our students
