A Wyoming Area Title I parent and student meeting was held recently at J.F.K. Elementary School.The theme of the program was a celebration of Dr Seuss’ March 2 birthday in conjunction with Read Across America.
Over 150 parents and students attended the event to celebrate the success of the Title I students who have worked throughout the year to improve reading skills. Title I students and parents were invited to spend an evening to celebrate their child’s success in the program. Informational packets were distributed to parents containing Title I forms used in the program and tips to help their child read at home.
Mrs. Rita Mauriello, Title I Coordinator, presented a brief overview of the Title I and Title II programs. Also discussed were Title I school parental and district involvement policies. These policies are reviewed annually to have parents note any changes they would like to see incorporated. Included were evaluations forms on which parents were encouraged to list changes or additions they may want included.
The district’s Title I reading specialists, Mrs. Carolyn Flickinger, Ms. Joan Hennigan, Mrs. Carol Tabit, Mrs. Linda McDermott and Mrs. Caroline Kudasik, Wyoming Area Catholic’s Title I computer technician, were in attendance to meet with parents.
A pizza party, Bingo for Books and prizes followed the parent presentation.
