Welcome to Lenape Elementary School!

Title I

As always, we want our Title I families to feel welcomed to reach out to us with any questions, comments, or concerns about their child's reading development - especially during the school closures. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the Lenape reading specialists via email at any point during the school closures. We will be checking our emails continuously.

Due to the school closures, the following Title I events have been postponed:
  • Title I Family Fun Night (originally scheduled for April 1, 2020)
  • Raising Readers Book Club for Grades 4-6 (originally scheduled for March 16, 23, and 30, 2020)
The Title I Reading Improvement Program is a federally funded project that provides supplemental reading instruction to eligible students. Activities are structured to encourage children to work and communicate cooperatively in small groups. Collaborative partnerships with parents/guardians are encouraged and nurtured through this program. This partnership ensures outgoing communication between parent and teacher to better serve the needs of each child.
Title I offers support to eligible children in the elementary grades. Specific and direct supplemental reading instruction in the skill areas of phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension is offered to students in small group settings. Reading specialists work directly with students to strengthen their reading skills and support children as they become proficient independent readers. Parents/guardians are encouraged to become involved in the design of building level Title I Parent Involvement Plans. This promotes positive communication between the home and school and training opportunities.
