Lyon County Elementary, located in Eddyville, Kentucky, serves approximately 415 students K-5th grade. In addition to nineteen regular classroom teachers, we have additional teachers for art, music, physical education, library, computers, guidance, gifted and talented education, special education, alternative classroom, and Title I. We offer students a variety of learning experiences including field trips and assemblies to enhance regular classroom instruction.
Our school is the recipient of a Read to Achieve/Early Reading Incentive Grant and we are implementing an Early Reading Intervention program with an in-house reading specialist. Our goal is to have every student reading at grade level by third grade. Our literacy plan also involves testing all students with DIBELS to monitor student progress. Students not meeting benchmark receive additional reading instruction.
Our school continues to emphasize high quality math instruction. Students receive additional math instruction through a math specialist funded by a math grant. Classroom teachers are using Thoughtful Ed strategies to reinforce math vocabulary terms and to allow students the opportunity to discuss math concepts. Math manipulatives are used in all grades as well as the latest math software, such as DreamBox, MobyMax, and Eureka Math to challenge students and reinforce math skills.
