Welcome 2018

Dear Parents,

   Welcome!  I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Kimberly Lucas and I am the Instructional Support Reading Teacher, serving grades four and five.

  In my role, I have the privilege of working with students, colleagues and parents to support children’s reading progress.  Within a balanced literacy framework and in a small group environment, I build a bridge between student strengths and areas of growth.  My goal is to make visible the skills and strategies that students need to utilize as they read, in order for text to be most meaningful for them.  Ultimately, my role is to facilitate the use of these strategies independently so that progress can continue in the homeroom setting.

  Given the personalized nature of this program, each child’s experience in my room may look a bit different.  I encourage you to reach out and contact me with any questions or concerns. It is imperative to have consistency in expectations between home and school, and I welcome the opportunity to partner with you for your child’s success. I look forward to working with your family.  Best wishes for a wonderful school year!
