Alta Pointe Partnership

Hall Elementary and Alta Pointe have a partnership which allows Alta Pointe Counselors to work on-site with families who are Alta Pointe clients. We have an individual and group therapist on campus each week. If you are experiencing issues with your child and feel as though your family could benefit from these services, please come to the office for more information.

Class DoJo

Are you connected to your child's Dojo page? Not only will you see up-to-date behavior information, but you can also communicate with the teacher AND have access to your child's CLASS STORY. Similar to a Facebook feed, Class Stories allow the teacher to post reminders and pictures of all of the great things happening in the classroom. Not on Dojo? Contact your child's teacher and get connected!

Homework

Please make sure that your child is practicing reading and math fluency each night. Students should be reading each night and practicing basic math facts. You can help your child by using flash cards, games, or apps that help your child to learn math facts!
