Principal, Coman Hill Elementary School
Coman Hill Elementary School prioritizes a strong focus on reading. Learn about the school's various strategies, including read-aloud sessions, independent book selection, and weekly library visits, to instill a love of reading among its students, integrating reading into different aspects of the curriculum and daily routines.
Once upon a time, they were young children who loved books and stories. The years passed by, and now they are sharing that love of reading and setting the example for younger students.
The goal of the program, made possible by a generous insta-grant from the Byram Hills Education Foundation, was to help increase students’ awareness of their bodies, boost self-esteem and strengthen their emotional regulation and well-being. Several sessions took place outside on the new BHEF-funded patio while the others were in the gym and classrooms.
Writers Workshop is based on the idea that students learn to write best when they frequently practice for extended periods on topics of their choosing. The Coman Hill kindergarten teachers spend a great deal of time building a solid foundation and getting students to tell their stories through their writer’s voice.
