Welcome to Ms Ortiz's Elementary Resource Room

  • Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year!

    We are so happy and excited to see everyone in person!  The Elementary Resource Program is located in room 136 on the main floor. The goal for the Resource Program is to have each and every student reach their academic potential by teaching to their own individual learning styles.  The emphesis will be on organizational skills, comprehension, memorization and computational strategies. Most important  is to motivate, empower and enhance self confidence through a variety taylored lessons and activities.  Every child is a flower waiting to blossom!
