ALERT

It's time for testing!

With testing season upon us, it is imperative that your child be well prepared! Please help your child get a good night’s rest and start his/her day with a nutritious breakfast. We are also asking that you try to schedule appointments outside of the hours of 8:00a – 3:00p during this week. If your child is tardy, he or she may need to wait in the office until the testing block is finished. It is very important that they are here everyday and on time. Thank you!

You will have received a letter from your child's school with testing information and dates....contact the school office if you have questions.

Literacy Tips for the Family!

K-2 Tip:
Practice Rhyming: No matter where you might be, you can pick an object (single syllable best to start with) and ask
your child to produce words that rhyme with that object.
Example: Car- far, jar, bar.

3-5 Tips:
We all know that our lives and schedules get very busy, therefore, if you are finding it difficult to read with your
child daily, here are a few suggestions:
Your child may read to a sibling, read to a stuffed animal, or read to a pet.
Tongue twisters offer children a chance to engage in word play. Word play can stimulate students’ curiosity about language
and help improve reading and vocabulary development. Below is a website with some examples of tongue twisters that you can practice reading at home with your child in order to engage in fun word learning.
