Welcome to the Skills Program With Mrs. Schaub

This program at Sacred Heart involves screening of all students in grades K-4 using an assessment called AIMSweb. The AIMSweb screening measures are a form of "Wellness Checks” of reading and math development and are given at the beginning, middle and end of the school year. These are quick assessments that serve as indicators of educational performance and identify students who may benefit from additional programming.  The results will also assist teachers in tailoring instruction to the particular needs of their students. 

Some students will receive specific instruction in a small group setting with Mrs. Schaub. These sessions will focus on basic skills of reading and/or math in order to provide your child with the foundations necessary to become a successful student. Although I will be in close communication with your child's teacher, this program should not be viewed as tutoring or extra help with classroom materials.  Instead, it is specific development of skills that are identified as lacking as well as progress monitoring to ensure that these students are progressing at a rate which will allow them to succeed in the classroom.  Other students' progress may be monitored more often than the three times a year, but may not come to group every day.  Our program is tailor-made so that every student at Sacred Heart can be a success!
