Friday April 24th

April showers bring May Flowers!

The month of April is almost over, and May will soon begin. Spring is coming and warmer weather too! Your children (and you) probably have "the itch" and long to be done with school and long days of lessons. Well, we have less than 6 weeks of school left!

Please be sure to check your student's progress! It is important that they stay on-track according to suggested progress. (Please see the progress percentages below.) Your students are required to be in school until June 4th. Please look at your student's daily plan and progress and pace as needed. This may require doubling-up on some lessons to complete your goals or stretching the remaining lessons out. All students need to complete lessons and track attendance through June 4th.

In your Friday Folder this week!

Don't Forget about Storia!

MNVA's online school library! This is an exciting new opportunity that is available to every student in MNVA Elementary! Each of the books in the Storia library are ebooks and delivered to you through your computer and internet access. Storia is customizable for your student too! As your homeroom teacher, I have the ability to add books to your student's bookshelf, but so do you! Storia supports reading and phonics skills as well as higher level standards.So these books may be specific books that are of interest to your student or may be beneficial when working on a certain skill. This wonderful school library is also accessible 24-7! There is no limit to how long you have a book and there are over 2,000 titles that are leveled and either fiction or nonfiction.

If you have not already, I urge you to log in and check it out today! (Any time spent in Storia library will be counted towards the attendance requirements.)

I have sent each student a Kmail with their Username and Password in them. However, if you need me to resend or reset your password, please let me know!

Happy Reading!
