Family Academic Support Night

We would like to host a family academic support night.


Please let us know any component of school that you would like to receive more information/training on. Some of our ideas are a PowerSchool info session, homework strategies, literacy, IXL info session, etc. We would like to hear from you about what you would like. We would provide a light dinner and child care at the evening event!


Please submit your ideas/requests here: Family Academy Support Night Ideas/Requests

Getting ONE hour of IXL math practice in each week!


https://www.ixl.com/signin/paoniak8


How time per week is calculated:


The time count starts on Saturday and runs through Friday morning. If students start on Saturday, it is only 10 minutes per day of work. If they wait until Monday to start, it is 15 minutes a day. If they’re not done by Friday morning, teachers work with them during their plan time to make sure they finish.

Read every night! Your child has reading goals set depending on his/her grade level.

Check in with your child and/or your child's teacher for these goals. Some grade levels have time of reading, some are by pages--simply ask the teacher.
