AR will be open for testing from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. We ask that students take no more than 2 tests per day to allow for other educational work/experiences. If your child does not know his/her username or password please contact your child's classroom teacher.

**Teachers were sent their students' usernames/passwords in case the parents need this information sent to them.

i-Ready login

Parent instructions to log on to i-Ready (our online program) at home –

1. Go to https://login.i-ready.com/

2. Click on the K-1 Card Login button

3. Use your child’s i-Ready log in card (in the zipper pouch of your child’s binder) to log your child in (your child knows how to log him/herself in at this point)

4. Click on the big green button that says “Next Lesson” to begin

5. After they complete the lesson, click on the “To Do” tab to continue to another lesson


Reading at home can make a huge difference!🙂

Choose books that are at an appropriate reading level for your child.

  • Use the five finger rule. Open the book to any page and ask your child to read. Put up a finger every time your child does not know a word. If you have put up more than five fingers before the end of the page, this book may be too hard for your child.
  • Choose books that match your child's interests and likes.
  • Keep plenty of reading materials in your home: books, magazines, newspapers, and comic books. Children enjoy a variety of reading materials.


Have your child complete this art assignment and you can send it to my email for me to post or post it on our school Facebook page if you have an account.



Write your child’s name with the white crayon. Alternatively, your child can write their own name.

Try to take up most of the white paper.

Now, have your kid brush watercolor over their name.

You can use one color or multiple colors. I chose to use the colors of the rainbow.

This would be a fun reinforcement of a science lesson on prisms and light!
