Important Information to Help Your Student!

What Can We Work on at Home?!?

You may have noticed that your student does not have daily homework. The only time a student should have homework is to make-up missed work from an absence or work that was not completed in class. Here are some suggestions if you want your student to have extra practice.

  • Read daily for at least 20 minutes
  • Practice fact fluency (multiplication & division)
  • Log in to ClassLink and work on Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies in Education Galaxy, or check out Sora, our online digital library.

Dress Code

  • Shirt colors - Maroon, white, grey, navy, and black
  • Pants must be hemmed and no holes or tears - Jeans or uniform bottoms in black, navy or khaki.
  • Practice good hygiene daily
  • Not sure if it is in dress code? Check here
