The Puyallup School District believes that literacy is the core of all learning.
To thrive in the world, we must be well-read.
A broad knowledge base is essential, but even more important, we must be able
to think — to make connections between texts, the world, and ourselves.
To be a contributing member of society, we must also be able to communicate
effectively both in a conversation and in writing.
To achieve mastery in reading, writing, and communication, we need many opportunities to practice in a variety of modes.
