No School on Friday, October 5


Conferences are next week Wednesday and Thursday from 4-8 p.m. each evening.

Many people signed up for conferences at open house in August, but if you have not signed up, please contact your child's teacher(s) right away to schedule a time. Teacher emails are available on our website.

This is absolutely our most important opportunity all year to talk with you about your student. We want to hear from you about your child. If you are wondering what to say at conferences, start by telling us about your child's strengths. Help us know what she/he is like outside of school. Our teachers will tell you what they have seen and assessed so far this year and how you can help your child grow academically. But we can't do that if you are not here, so we look forward to seeing you at conferences!

Math links

The publisher of our math textbook provides links for students to use outside of class. There are activities to do at home to support math learning as well as help for parents and families when you are not quite sure how to help your student in math. Your child's teacher may have provided more specific log-in information for math work at home as well. The following links do not require a log-in, so they can work anywhere on any device!

Math Games (for every grade level)

Math Words and Ideas (what students learn in class)

Extra clothes?

It is helpful to have an extra shirt or pants in your child's locker in case of accidents or mess. The office only has a limited supply of extra clothing, and it never seems to be the right size ... Please consider sending an extra T-shirt or pants for each student to keep in his/her locker.

The Power of Student Self-Advocacy

The flyer below is for an event on October 11 featuring Deb Douglas. This is the same night as our PTO meeting, but this event is not hosted by South Milwaukee. Self-advocacy means students speaking up for their own learning needs, which is a positive skill, especially as students get older and take ownership of their learning.

Sensory-Friendly Events

If you are a family looking for sensory-friendly events for your child, here are a few options that Milwaukee-area organizations offer.
