Things parents/guardians can do to help:
  • Check homework folders and planners each night for important information.  
  • Your student's textbook is their day book, everything they need should always be right there with them.
  • Students are expected to read 30 minutes each night and respond in writing.  They also need to read for 30 minutes and respond at least once over the weekend.  Please encourage your reader.  Ask your child ​if​ they have completed their weekly reading response.
  • If any ​questions or concerns​ arise, please ​email, call, or write a note​.
  • Supplies always needed are: tissues, index cards, pencils, glue sticks, hand sanitizer, copy paper, and sticky notes.
