The Tamara Nabors Parent Center:
The Parent Center has been renamed in order to honor a beloved staff member that passed away. Some of the many resources we offer are: books for check out, books with tapes, books to keep, parenting resource books, magazine, student's supplies, videos, school texts, computer access, and parent resources. It is the goal of Chicot Primary and ECC staff to work together with parents and members of the community to provide a quality educational experience for all students. There will be many opportunities for parents to be involved in their child's school experience and we look forward to working with each and every one. Come see what's in the Parent Center!
Reading Recovery is a highly effective short-term intervention of one-on-one tutoring for low-achieving first graders. In Reading Recovery, individual students receive a half-hour lesson each school day for 12 to 20 weeks with a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher. As soon as students can read within the average range of their class and demonstrate that they can continue to achieve, their lessons are discontinued, and new students begin individual instruction.
Gifted & Talented Education:
The Gifted and Talented Program provides an educational environment for identified GT students that allows them to develop intellectually, socially, and emotionally. Outstanding achievement or the potential for outstanding achievement of each student is evidenced through an interaction of above average intellectual ability, task commitment, and creative ability. Students in Kindergarten and first grade attend G/T weekly. Identified students in second through fifth grade get G/T services weekly.
