Leveled Literacy Intervention:

Thanks to the hard work of Jennifer Hurtado and Heather Ecker, at this time every lesson has been printed and filed in its labeled folder for all grade levels. They are still working on the additional lesson materials needed for the lessons.
Please find below the steps on how to print lesson materials in the event that we have not yet printed these.
Go to:


Pw: emory17LLI
1. Choose Level (ex: Blue)
2. Select tab: Lesson Resources
3. Choose the printer icon for each material and print.
4. Print as many materials for lessons that you need.The LLI program has been stored in the cabinets in room 11 by grade level from Kindergarten to Fifth grade. Jennifer has created a checkout sheet for us to use as a courtesy to others. There are also master copies of the lessons in case these were to get misplaced. Our folders are on back order so as soon as they come in you will be able to find them more easily.

Eagle Pride Reward Tshirt:
Thank you for your hard work developing criteria for your team’s reward t-shirt. You should have already shared this information with your students and families. Cindy Pillado has the t-shirts and will be your point of contact to obtain them for your students. Here is a letter which you may wish to share as well. Emory Eagles School letter
