In an effort to increase literacy and vocabulary for all students, Ryan implements Words of the Week into our rigorous curricula.

These are high frequency words found on many exams and are in alignment with the Common Core Learning Standards.  The Words of the Week (WOW Words) will be defined and used in every classroom, so students will have optimum exposure in all subject areas.

Please ask your child the W.O.W. to ensure potential for learning.
