Dear parents,

Any supplies you would like to donate would be greatly appreciated for children in need!

Thank you so much for your generous time and support. We truly appreciate any help that we can get for the children at Loving Arms!

*RAZ-KIDS!

Please make sure your child is reading each night, listening to the stories, and taking the quizzes. Reading for 20 minutes each night is one of the best ways for your child to become a better reader. Third Grade is tracking the number of books read in order for the class to earn incentives, such as a popcorn party! Thank you for your help with this!


*Multiplication flash cards are a great way for your child to become fluent with their multiplication facts! Students should be working with flash cards every night. If you do not have flash cards, check out these links to access apps (some are free!) for multiplication! http://elearningindustry.com/20-free-multiplication-ipad-apps-for-kids
