Save the Date: February 12th - we will attend a field trip that will extend beyond school hours into the afternoon. Info will come home very soon. Please do not plan events on this day, so your child can attend the field trip
Graded work comes home weekly, please make sure that you check your child's binder each night.
You will receive a slip of colored paper with the DFA score on it. Please look at those carefully.
You can also setup a FOCUS account to see all grades anytime. Contact the office to do so.
It is very important that students complete the math homework as practice of the lesson. In addition I am adding many links to my math page, so that additional instruction and practice can happen at home. Khan Academy is an excellent site that uses videos to teach math concepts. They have added Eureka Math/Engage NY videos, so students can relearn the lesson of the day if needed. Please look at the math page of my website to find the links.
Compass Learning: (*flier coming home today)
This is the BEST online resource to help your child improve their STAR scores. Just 20 minutes a day can have a very big impact.
Math Parent Tip Sheets
On the math page of my website I have uploaded and linked all of the Parent tip sheets for the module we are working on. Please view or print for advice on helping with homework.
