Welcome to the Title 1 Program at Newtown Elementary School!Title I services are offered at Newtown Elementary for the 2018/19 school year. This government funded program provides supplemental reading assistance to children in first grade, second grade, and kindergarten. Children remain in the Title I program for the entire school year and are invited to attend a free academic camp in the summer.
At Newtown Elementary, children are recommended by their classroom teacher, as well as Mrs. Lisa Lohwasser, NES Literacy Specialist.
The Newtown Elementary Title I Program is currently being administered by two Title I staff members. Each student meets with their assigned Title I staff member for two 30 minute sessions per week. Some of the sessions are individualized, and some are small-group lessons. The lessons teach students to use strategies they need to become fluent and independent readers.
