End of School Year & Returning Items
Our last day of school is Wednesday, May 26th. Please do not return materials prior to this date.
K12 will provide prepaid UPS shipping labels to return materials to you. Labels will be sent prior to the first day of school. Materials can be sent back in any box, not just the boxes you received them in. If you need additional prepaid shipping labels, go to www.k12.com/support and select Click Here to Request UPS Return Labels found on the right hand side. Note: If you are returning to OVCA for the 2021-22 school year, do not return your computer.
To find out which materials should be returned, learning coaches should log in to their OLS account.

- Click the My Info link.
- Select the student name, and then the "Orders" tab to see a list of all material orders.

What Can You Do to Help Your Child Grow?
Reading at least 20 minutes per day is a great way to increase reading fluency. Your child can work on building up their stamina by starting with just 5 minutes. You can also change up your reading space to make it fun and new! Some ideas are: reading outside, build a fort-then read in it, reading during a picnic, or read a book in bed. This website has more creative reading challenge ideas: https://www.ateachableteacher.com/free-reading-challenge/
As they read, help them practice comprehension skills like identifying the main parts of the story including details about characters, setting, beginning/middle/end, etc. They can also read a book and describe the main idea and details about the people, places, and thing in it.
Encourage them to write in fun ways, a letter to family member, creating their own story, making a journal entry, etc.
Remember to log in regularly to work on your personalized path and check for assignments from your teacher.
