The Department of Elementary English Language Arts is part of the Curriculum & Instruction Department. Our mission is to facilitate a comprehensive curriculum to all students engaging them in learning experiences through learner-centered activities so that they will use language purposefully as they comprehend, construct, and convey meaning.

Through a holistic writing curriculum all students will be empowered to become purposeful writers addressing immediate and long-term goals.

Program Overview

The English Language Arts Department is dedicated to developing the comprehensive writing skills of all students to empower their ability to fluently communicate in written language.  Our goal is that through the development of process writing and mastery of its conventions, all students will apply analytical skills in all content areas through a comprehensive TEKS-based curriculum.

With a conscious collaboration between teachers, parents and district coordinators, we will facilitate the instructional needs of our students to support their lifelong educational goals.
