Literacy at WSS

Collage of letters that look as they were cut from a newspaper that spell "Literacy".


Greetings from our literacy team, comprised of reading teacher Mary Ellen Vigeant and our library paraprofessional, Janice Morton.
Quote by Garrison Keillor that reads "A book is gift you can open again and again".Working through both individual and small-group instruction, our reading team is committed to improving every aspect of your child's reading.

Our ultimate goal is to help every West Stafford student grow a genuine love of reading and become a life-long reader. We feel fortunate that our reading department not only works with children within their classrooms, but we also provide interventions where children come to the reading room. Here they may gain additional Fundations practice or attend a group using Leveled Literacy Intervention texts and strategies.


Beyond these targeted interventions, we are proud to promote literacy school-wide, encouraging involvement:
