A Message from Principal Menko

Welcome to Line Mountain Elementary, where “Assessment Drives Instruction”, “All students can learn” and “Fair is not always equal.” The purpose of education in the schools of this district is to facilitate development of the potential of each student to the fullest.

Line Mountain Elementary is located in Northumberland County in Trevorton, PA. The 2016-17 student population is 403 students. There are 35 teaching professionals working with the children including classroom teachers, reading specialists, special education teachers, a speech therapist, a school counselor, and a school nurse. There are a variety of paraprofessionals, custodial and food service employees. Every staff member works together to ensure the children have their academic needs met in a clean warm building with nutritious food.

The 2015 – 2016 school year saw the introduction of a new Reading and Math series. The teachers worked in a committee and picked the Journey’s series published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. A second set of teachers worked in a committee and selected the Go Math program published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Both series have a digital component that students and teachers can access though ThinkCentral.

The Reading Series goals include:

      • Develop children’s abilities to comprehend both fiction and informational texts
      • Provide explicit, systematic instruction, diagnostic supports and practice in reading foundation skills
      • Provide daily systematic, explicit instruction in a variety of forms of writing
      • Develop students’ understanding and social skills through increasing their speaking and listening vocabularies

The Math Series is built around teaching each concept with a five step lesson:

      • Engage
      • Explore
      • Explain
      • Elaborate
      • Evaluate

The series also brings in Science, Social Studies and Language Arts activities.
