Back to School



Welcome back to school! I am very excited to be working with you this year. This is a really fun grade and I have faith that it will be a great year for you.

I am looking forward to motivating you and helping you to be successful. The communications lines are always open between us, parents. Don’t hesitate to share any thoughts or concerns with me. Let’s work together as a team this year and help your child achieve great things!

This grade can be challenging. There is a lot of reading and writing. Please commit yourselves to working hard each and every school day; and know that I am always here to help. Contact me whenever you need anything.

Let’s have a great year!

To begin your school year, follow these steps:

  • Once you complete the above steps you can get started on your assigned lessons in Compass.

Websites and Worksheets

It is never my intention to send you to a worksheet or website in your lessons that
does not work. If you come across any links that won’t open for you, please let me know right away so that I can correct them.

To access many worksheets in Compass you will need to provide this username and password: treca.

Call Center

Call the Call Center whenever you have questions or problems relating to your equipment or software. They can help whenever you have general questions that I may not be able to help you with.
