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 Interventionist Teachers:

Reading interventionists work extensively with students to teach strategies and ehlp students improve specific reading skills such as letter-naming, initial sounds, phoneme segmentation, and comprehension strategies. Interventionists work with the teacher to design methods of learning that are most appropriate for each child. Reading Intervention Teachers specialize in providing second and third tier intervention for students.
