At Spiritridge you will find an exceptional community where students, staff and the community work together to help every student maximize his/her learning. You will find an incredibly talented staff who put student learning first. The community strives to nurture our children so they may achieve high academic expectations.
As a professional learning community, we have been focusing on reading comprehension as our area of focus for all students. Reading comprehension has been defined as, "A process in which readers construct meaning by interacting with text through the combination of prior knowledge and previous experience, information in the text, and the stance the reader takes in relationship to the text." (Laura S. Pardo) Reading comprehension focuses on pre-reading, during reading, and post-reading strategies.
We continue to research best practices and how we can stretch students' thinking through the texts they read. Our staff focus on providing reading instruction for every student at his/her appropriate level and strive to challenge every student to promote continuous growth.
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you as a Panther!
