Empowering All Students to Excel


Nayatt PTO Gardens & Grounds Committee:

  • Special thanks to Krista Carleton and Sarah Mycroft for their incredible work continuing to create outdoor, learning spaces around Nayatt School.  

  • Check out their amazing decorations for Valentine’s Day along the outdoor walls & doorways.  They lift our spirits each day, they are so fun and festive.



Questions about the Recent Guidance Regarding Day Ski Trips:

  • Administrators and school nurses throughout the East Bay Region meet with their RIDOH team every other week..

  • RIDOH equates day ski trips to red states such as MA. & NH or Maine to a sports travel team traveling to play in an out of state game.

  • Currently, this is not allowed by the state, members of the team would be forced to quarantine.

  • This is the case with ski trips, the rules and guidelines are meant to keep us safe and well.

Teaching and Learning:  

  • In the upcoming months, the majority of our first graders discover the magic of reading.

  • An important component of reading is rapid recognition of high frequency words and sight words.

  • Sight words are common words kids have to recognize instantly without sounding them out.

  • Recognizing words by sight helps kids become faster, more fluent readers.

  • Many sight words are tricky to read and spell—they aren’t spelled the way they sound.

  • Kindergarten: be, but, do, have, he, she, they, was, what, with

  • First grade: after, again, could, from, had, her, his, of, then, when

  • Second grade: around, because, been, before, does, don’t, goes, right, which, write

  • Third grade: better, carry, eight, laugh, light, myself, only, own, shall, together
