The mission of the English Language Arts Department is to help students develop the communication skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and thinking in order to become contributing members of a democratic society.

The following overarching Essential Questions support our mission and guide instruction at each grade level:

  • Why does language matter?

  • Why do we read?

  • Why do the rules of language matter?

  • Why is it important to speak well and listen well?

  • Why do we write?

  • How do English Language Arts promote critical thought and communication?
