• Dear Parents,
            I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Alison Shornock and I am just returning from my maternity leave. I know it might be a little confusing having your child switch teachers mid year, so please feel free to email me with any questions or to set up a conference. I am looking forward to working with you this year!
    I can be reached at alisshornock@paps.net
  • Reading books with your child can support language development and learning in many ways. Incorporating some of these tips can help develop your child's reading skills.
    1. Provide a consistent time and place to read together.
    2.Practice at least three to four nights a week for at least 15 to 20 minutes.
    3. Listen to your child read.
    4. Talk with your child's teacher.
    5. Have your child bring home his school library books or other classroom books so that you can listen to your child read books on his/her grade level.
    6. Wait before helping your child when he makes a mistake.
    7. Praise your child for correcting himself and using clues to figure out words on his own.
    8. Provide help without telling them the word if they are unsuccessful at first.
    9. Make time to read aloud together often.
    10. Keep a variety of reading materials available throughout your home.
