North Park is a PBiS school. What that means is that we support students with positive language and expectations. We reward students, classrooms and building for putting for their best effort, being responsible and respectful. Spartan bucks are giving to each student that can cash them in for prizes of their choosing. Classrooms keep track of compliments and other positive behaviors and have classwide rewards. We also keep track of "spartan heads" on our gumball machine and when we fill it up, we have a building wide celebration. Ask you child about the expectations and share in their success!

Library News

Did you know there is a 'little library' near Candyland Park? Look for the tiny kiosk in the parking lot. You can drop off books that you no longer want and pick up books that others have left. Check it out!

Title I Helpful Hints

Here are six tips to help improve reading comprehension taken from Scholastic website.

1. Have your child read aloud: This forces them to go slower, which gives them more time to think about what they read.

2. Provide the right kinds of books: Make sure your child gets lots of practice reading books that aren't too hard. They should recognize at least 90 percent of the words without any help. Stopping any more interferes with the meaning.

3. Reread to build fluency: Your child needs to read quickly and smoothly. Rereading familiar books gives your child practice at decoding words quickly so they become fluent.

4. Talk to the teacher: If your child is struggling with reading comprehension, the teacher may be able to provide extra support for you at home.

5. Supplement class reading: If your child's class is studying a topic, look for books or magazines on that topic or a topic of interest.

Talk about what they are reading: This helps them remember and think about books. Ask questions before, during, and after to encourage reading comprehension
