We welcome you to the website of Lake View Primary School, located in beautiful Page, Arizona. Our site's purpose is to provide helpful information to our parents, students, teachers, and community members regarding our school.
The PUSD curriculum comes to us from Beyond Textbooks. This curriculum drives the teaching standards for kindergarten through twelfth grade. It also provides specific materials and formative assessments that guide our instruction.
The classroom teacher and grade level teams meet twice a week to discuss how to teach the standards over several days, and then collect data from the assessments. They plan together, but it is up to each teacher to use his or her expertise, teaching style, strategies, and format for learning in the classroom environment.
Formative assessments given after we teach the standard to mastery help guide teachers to set up groups for re-teach and enrichment. Students will receive four 30-minute re-teach opportunities to master the standard at a higher level, or four 30-minute enrichment opportunities to extend the learning with a different teacher.
Re-teach and enrich is the first layer of interventions that occur daily and school wide. We also provide after school opportunities in math and reading for a second layer of intervention for students. The teachers teach daily math skills that will build fluency over time for all students. We are using a school wide phonics program called Fundations that teaches students reading, from letter naming to fluent reading. The reading specialist and a team of interventionists provide support to students needing a double dose of the program to become fluent readers as an intervention. With this curriculum, we have an opportunity to address needs earlier. We would typically wait for the grade level benchmark assessment occurring five times a year for second grade. Next, we would review the data to see which students need more of what standard, and then teachers would find a way to fit it into the daily teaching routine. Interventions for reading were based on the DIBELS assessments and Galileo benchmarks that are given quarterly.
If you have concerns or questions, please talk to the teacher and they can let you know exactly how your child is doing on the standards for the quarter. We are currently working on the development of a standards based report card.
Lake View Primary School is a positive, safe environment where an enthusiasm for learning is shared by all. The staff is dedicated to educating all students to high levels of academic growth with an emphasis on reading, writing, and math. Through teamwork, the Lake View community is developing children who are socially, emotionally, and academically successful.
