Interventions and Enrichments
Walnut Power Hour and Friday School
Walnut Elementary routinely screens students to determine if they are making adequate academic progress. Students who are found to be performing at a level that indicates the need for additional support may be invited to participate in the following:
Walnut Elementary Power Hour- Monday and Tuesday from 3:00-4:15 is set aside for 2nd and 3rd graders who have been identified as students who may benefit from added instruction in varied ways. Wednesday and Thursday from 3:00-4:15 is reserved for Kindergarten and 1st grade. Instruction is focused on Reading, Writing, and Math skills that have been identified through the use of a universal screener and classroom based formative assessments. Reading and Math interventions are primarily focused on early reading and math literacy skills to help students develop into confident students.
Walnut Elementary Friday School- On the Fridays when there is no scheduled staff development, select students are requested to attend Friday school for additional support on targeted Reading, Writing, and Math skills. Additionally, enrichment offerings are open to all students. Current enrichments include Readers Theater (where students read a story/script and act it out using simple props they create) and STEAM activities.
