  • School uses a curriculum centered on improving all students' ability to read--ensuring students learn how to read in kindergarten, first and second grades so that at third, fourth, and fifth grades, students can read to learn. All students are expected to read across a variety of multiple texts each day, including passages, excerpts, articles, books, novels, and more. Students read across all subject areas (reading/language arts, math, science, and social studies) and in support classes, too.
  • Parent Involvement: Corning Elementary will partner with parents in a number of ways to increase involvement. Corning will support existing organizations to further the mission of the school. Corning will also develop a Parental Advisory Association (PAA) where members can weigh in on decisions around school development and improvement. The PAA will also assist the leadership team in finding ways to increase parental involvement. Corning will host special events such as curriculum night and performances for parents to see what students are learning and doing. As teachers develop units of study they will invite parents to participate by reading a book, helping with a project or speaking to their own experience with the subject matter.
