Poteau Primary School is a Reading First School.  Reading First is a 
federally funded reading grant that is provided by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.  Reading First was established in response to the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 that President Bush signed into law January, 2002.  The goal of Reading First is to ensure that all children learn to read well  by the end of third grade.  This goal is met by providing k-3 students with quality reading instruction as well as preparing classroom teachers to deliver high quality, explicit and systematic instruction in the five essential areas of reading instruction:  phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
