Faculty Updates

  • Colin Martin will move into a new role teaching Humanities (combination of Language Arts and Social Studies) to 7th and 8th grade students. This allows us to bring continuity in curriculum in our upper Middle School grades.
  • Candice Flaherty has joined our Middle School team teaching Math to SBP 7th and 8th graders.

Structured Literacy Model

After collecting data on our Structured Literacy model piloted in SBP 3rd grade, we saw marked gains in fluency and overall reading growth last year. We will be adopting this Structured Literacy approach in 4th grade as well for the 2019-20 school year. I am happy to share information about this new model and why it’s considered a best practice by the International Dyslexia Association.
