Although the school year is winding down, we still have roughly 5 weeks of learning. With this being said, we would really appreciate your support in ensuring that your child has a working pair of headphones at school. We know that it is a pain to buy several pair per year (Mrs. Compton is experiencing this as well with her K student), but it truly makes a world of difference for your child and his/her ability

Frequently Asked Questions About Goal Sheets

We have had a lot of parents ask great questions about how to check their child's progress on their goal sheets.

Here a a few FAQs.

iReady: This program does not work on our iPads at this moment. It has to do with the Flash Player. We are hoping iReady makes some changes soon to fix this problem. You can still complete iReady lessons at home, you will just have to use a computer. The link to access iReady is below.

iReady: How do I check to see if my child has completed a lesson?

Answer: Have your child login to iReady either through Puffin (an app on your child's iPad) or on a laptop ( Have them choose either math or reading, then click on the progress button in the top right corner. All lessons will show up under the drop down arrows. Look for the completed date.

Reflex:How do I check for a green light?

Answer: To check for the green light, have your child login to Reflex. In the top right corner you will see a circle. The circle will fill up showing their progress. It will turn completely green when they have received the green light. Students can only receive one green light a day.

Lexia:How do I check my child's completed units ?

Have your child login to Lexia. While they are working on a lesson, a progress circle fills up at the bottom. When the entire circle has filled up, they have completed one unit. To check the total amount of units, the need to logout of the lesson, click on the white X, and then on the right there will be a Units symbol. By the symbol there will be a plus sign and how many units passed next to it. These reset on Monday of each week.
