Lexia App Busy Bee

This week teacher's will be looking for the Lexia App Busy Bee for the Most Valuable Player. Lexia is a great app that helps students with English Language Arts. Lexia is a smart app that adjusts to your child's needs. If they need remediation it will adapt; as well as if your student is on grade level it will challenge them. Please encourage your child to log in every day. Below you will see a quick video that Ms. Sewell did for our weekly announcements.
