• 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 word that surrounds them.
    Guiding Principles
    At Newton-Lee, we use a comprehensive literacy approach to reading that supports students as they evolve into successful, lifelong learners.  Our teachers provide students with various opportunities to participate in read-alouds, shared reading, interactive reading, guided reading, and independent reading.  In addition, students engage in modeled, shared, interactive, and independent writing. 
    Our Objectives are for the students to:


    ·      Develop basic skills that enable them to get meaning from print

    ·      Think critically about what they read

    ·      Use reading across the curriculum as a tool for learning

    ·      Experience the rewards and pleasures of reading

    ·      Become independent writers who write for a variety of purposes


    Our reading specialists work as resource teachers, diagnosticians of reading difficulties, and as coaches to provide support for the regular classroom teachers.
