Help Us Meet Our Schoolwide Goals!

This year, we are working to increase the effectiveness of our online learning resources.

In math, we are challenging each student to complete a minimum of 5 DreamBox lessons each week.

In ELA, we are using two different programs, RazKids and Lexia. Your student will know which one he/she uses. If they use RazKids, we are asking they they complete 2 books each week.

If they use Lexia, we are asking that they complete 8 lessons each week.

Classrooms where students are making progress on these programs will be recognized over the announcements as well as on our data display leading into the cafeteria.
