PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Helpful tips to help your child with learning at home:

*read with them nightly

*practice addition, subtraction or multiplication facts -- see your child's teacher if you need help with this

*ask them the best part of their day -- have them describe something specific not just say all of it

*check assignment note books

*communicate with the teacher


Thank you again for all that you are doing to help us. As always, please contact the office if you are in need of any assistance.

Open Enrollment: This year’s Open Enrollment application period will take place between February 1st and April 30th. The Wisconsin Open Enrollment program allows children to attend public school in a school district other than the one in which they live. Early and late applications will not be accepted. Parents may apply online at https://dpi.wi.gov/oe If you do not have access to a computer, call or stop in at the district office.


If your child is currently attending under Open Enrollment, it is not necessary to complete an application form; your child will remain an active student through 12th grade.



Early Childhood Screening: Oconto Falls School District conducts developmental screenings for preschool age children (2 years, 9 months to 5 years, 0 months) who reside within the district. The purpose of the screening is to provide you with developmental information (speech, language, motor, pre-academics) on your child and to identify children who may need access to early intervention. Call to schedule your free screening today at 920-848-4476.
