May Issue: West Point Consolidated School District

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As the school year winds down, it’s a great time to help your child look back, look forward, give thanks and celebrate🎈🎈. Here’s how:

  1. Talk to your child’s teacher. Ask about your child’s strengths and weaknesses. How has he improved? Where does he need more work? Ask what you can do to help your child over the summer.
  2. Talk to your child about the school year. Ask what he thinks went well. Talk about what challenged him most. Help him figure out what changes he should make for the upcoming school year.
  3. Review your child’s successes. Look over schoolwork you’ve saved during the year. Point out how much your child has learned—how many new words, for example. Or how he can add and divide. Or how his writing has improved.
  4. Help your child set learning goals for the summer. How much time will he spend reading? What math concepts would he like to master? Guide him, based on the suggestions from his teacher.
  5. Encourage your child to thank people who have made the year work—the teacher, school nurse, librarian, food service worker, etc. This will help him appreciate how many people have helped him.
  6. Celebrate the year’s accomplishments with a special activity. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or cost anything. Just make plans to enjoy one-on-one time with your child.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's school.

Thank you and God Bless!

Paper Tutoring

We really excited to tell you about our new tutoring services, provided by Paper.

Paper is a secure, online tutoring service that provides students with unlimited, 24/7 academic support. Whether they’re stuck on homework, studying for a test, or need someone to read and make suggestions to their essays, there will always be experts available online to assist students in over 200 subjects and more than 4 languages.

Paper tutors have been specially trained to conduct expert, academic support in a secure, chat-based platform. With a commitment to helping students learn, they’ll never give students answers, but rather interact with them in an encouraging tone to lead them forward.

This is a free service that we’re providing, so students are encouraged to use it as much as they need, whenever they need. Our teachers also have accounts and will be able to review all student activity to see what they’re working on and provide more targeted instruction as needed.

If you’d like to learn more about Paper visit the MDE + Paper Website. Here you will be able to register for an upcoming parent info session, available in both English and Spanish, and find resources on how to get started in using Paper with your students right away! Or if you’d like to speak to a member of the Paper team directly, you can reach them at
