Remind Helps You Stay Connected!

You are your child’s first teacher. Student success depends on the support of networks that include parents, teachers, and other key stakeholders in their school communities. To strengthen these partnerships, teachers are using Remind to bring learning home. Remind is a free, safe messaging app that keeps families up to date with what’s happening in the classroom. Teachers can send messages to an entire class, smaller groups, or individuals. These quick, simple messages can help you and your student stay informed about:

• Homework assignments

• Field trip updates

• Schedule changes

• Personalized support or feedback

• And more!


Signing up is easy! To join a Remind class, you’ll need a class code from a teacher, coach, administrator, or organization leader. Each code is unique, but it always looks like this: @classcode. Once you have a class code, there are three ways to join the class:

1. Sign up for text notifications by texting @classcode to 81010.

2. Go to www.remind.com/join/classcode and follow the directions.

3. Download the Remind app from the App Store or Google Play, sign up for an account with your email address, and enter the class code when prompted.

DreamBox is a digital math program for grades K-8 that combines a fun and engaging math learning environment with a rigorous, standards-based curriculum. DreamBox lessons are interactive experiences that promote active learning and independent critical thinking and respond to each student’s strategies and decisions in the moment. This enables DreamBox to individually tailor the instructional experience for each student based on the strategies they use when working through lessons. Because DreamBox dynamically adapts lessons and learning paths based on the needs of each learner, students always have just the right level of support when and where they need it.

Home Usage Advice and Best Practices

  • Plan at least 20-30 minutes for each session. Students should complete at least 5 lessons per week.
  • Since DreamBox is personalized to each learner based on their strategies and understanding, it’s important to let your child work through lessons within their own account.
  • Use the Activity Feed in your Family Insight Dashboard to monitor you child’s progress. If they are stuck on a lesson, you can view it by hitting the ‘Play Lesson’ button and help guide them with a facilitated discussion. Try to avoid helping them directly in the student environment.
  • Turn on closed captioning with lessons if it’s helpful.

Renaissance Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps teachers and media specialists manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his own level and reads it at his own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read.) Accelerated Reader gives children, teachers, and librarians feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice.
