During the Standards and Curriculum Workshop, families will gain information about what their child needs to learn during the school year and hear about available school resources such as Star, Lexile scores, etc.
During the Digital Literacy workshop, families will learn how to monitor a child’s progress using Parent Portal, ways to utilize other educational websites and apps at home, and the harms of piracy.
These workshops will begin at 5:40 pm, after the Title I meeting.
Leader in Me
At the beginning of the year, we focus on leadership roles, mission statements, Wildly Important Goals (WIGs), and leadership notebooks.
In September, students will focus on Habit 1: Be Proactive. Students will learn about their circle of control and that they are in control of their own actions etc. Roleplaying between proactive vs. reactive at home will help your children deal with situations that are in or out of their circle of control.
