Math Matters
This year we are focusing on supporting families in math instruction by choosing an excellent math curriculum and providing additional resources to help in the teaching of math. One great resource that will be provided each month is a math newsletter.

i-Ready | K- 8
As you know, the i-Ready window opened last week and runs through October 14th.  If you are proctoring the test for your children, we encourage you to start early to allow your students to take their time. Once the diagnostic is complete, your child will automatically have access to the individualized i-Ready online lessons, which are personalized to each student’s sub-skill level in both reading and math. This is a great way to support growth in their academic performance levels in both subject areas. Please feel free to contact your teacher with any questions you may have.
