  • Kindergarteners start strong with Reading Mastery/Corrective Reading

    “It is important to recognize that the goals of phonics instruction are to provide children with key knowledge and skills and to ensure that they know how to apply that knowledge in their reading and writing. In other words, phonics teaching is a means to an end” veteran educator Beth Trefzger, interventionist at Woodrow Wilson Primary School, explained to parents during a Parent University workshop this week. Trefzger is speaking directly about the systematic phonics instruction provided to students through the direct instruction model that begins in kindergarten.

  • Horizon Club members research, track career goals

    Horizons Club students are hard at work researching careers and industries, and creating goals for their future. Horizons Club is a middle school career and college exploration program run by the Peoria Public Schools Foundation. The Foundation is thrilled to partner with many companies and organizations in an effort to fulfill its mission of supporting the students in PSD150. For example, Eureka College has generously donated much needed educational tools. Each year Eureka College has supplied special Horizons Club notebooks used by the students to archive their research, plan their goals and record their dreams. The notebooks are more than paper and pen, but a possession used with pride for the Horizons Club members.
