PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make sure your child has the supplies they need to be prepared for class. Each student should have a highlighter, glue sticks, erasers, and sharpened pencils (more than one!).

**We will gladly take donations of any of these items, along with Kleenex and Clorox Wipes! Thank you!**

Tips to Stay Engaged and Active in your Child's Educational Journey:

  • State Writing Test is online this year! Help your child by having them type various things on the computer to build their digital stamina. Contact your teachers for ways to do this best!
  • Read WITH your child! See picture below about how to help them become a better reader.
  • Ask them to tell you what kind of questions they asked in class that day.
  • Ask them to give you 3 highs and 3 lows about their day - every day!
  • Ask them who their friends are and what was one topic of conversation they had with those friends that day.
  • Ask them to teach you one thing they learned from each class.
  • Communicate frequently and openly with the teachers - we WANT to hear from you about the good and the bad! We are all on the same team!
  • Remind them that you are PROUD of them and love seeing them grow each day.
