Welcome to Reading!
The mission of the Elementary Reading program in Loudoun County Public Schools is to teach all students how to read and comprehend written text so that they may become independent readers and lifelong learners with a firm grasp of the written world that surrounds them. Students are taught to develop skills and strategies needed to make sense of what they read. They are learning to think critically and to acquire knowledge in the content areas. Sycolin Creek students are immersed in a rich literature and language environment with daily reading and writing opportunities. They are exposed to a wide variety of fictional and informational reading material to enhance learning and enjoyment.
The Reading Specialist at Sycolin Creek coordinates the school's reading program, works with struggling readers in small groups, and serves as a resource to teachers and parents to support reading. In addition, she organizes the reading incentive programs for the school.
Everyone at Sycolin Creek is committed to providing an environment that helps students become competent, lifelong readers.
