- Your child needs to be at grade level in their Reading and math skills.
- Therefore, they need to be on Mobymax and Myon everyday or every other day to help them with their skills.
- If you do not have a computer or tablet at home, your child is welcome to stay after school Mondays-Thursdays to work in the community center.
- I am able to see what they are doing online on these websites.
We need to work together to help our students excel! Please make sure that your child:
- reads at least 20 minutes a day ( Myon or a book) and writes a summary for their reading log which will be collected every two weeks.
- logs onto splashmath.com at least 3 times a week and completes their work
- check their planners to review what they have worked on in class.
- completes their homework and submits them on time and neat.
- If they have a redo, they must redo it and submit it the next day.
Do you have a family recipe or an immigrant story to share? Or a story about
your name or family tree? Send it to us and it will be considered for
publication in a community anthology.

- We are finishing up our personal narrative writing. As your child may have told you, we completed a timeline of our lives and chose a specific topic to write about. After modeling how to write a personal narrative, students got to work. They completed a rough draft and checked each other’s work. Then they typed their final drafts and submitted them on google classroom.
- Parents, have your child guide you though google classroom and show you what we have been working on.
- Please email me at email@example.com so that I can add you to my google classroom and you can get a peek at what we are doing.
