Hello, Willis Road families,


Our district is currently looking at an instructional resource

for the English Language Arts (ELA) classrooms. Teams

of ELA teachers have reviewed Ready Reading.  You will

see sample lessons on the Key Ideas. (Grade 1   Grade 2 pt 1 

 Grade 2 pt 2  Grade 3 pt 1  Grade 3 pt 2) If you are interested in

seeing the actual books, you may visit our central office at

167 Werz Industrial Blvd from 8:00 - 4:00 during the week.


You may leave feedback at the front office with Mrs. Whetstone.

Dr. Baker, the ELA Content Specialist, will contact all schools

to retrieve any notes left regarding the series.
