News and Notes

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please note this flyer about before and after care.

Dear Parents,
Research confirms that a student's rate of academic development declines over summer months when compared to academic development over the school year. In an effort to provide students with instructional support throughout the summer and avoid any decline in learning, we are continuing online instructional support programs for our students.

At the West Elementary Campus, students entering grades 1 - 5 are asked to complete a minimum of three (3) sessions each in SuccessMaker Reading and TenMarks Math every week. The sessions are 15 - 20 minutes in length each and target academic areas at your child's instructional levels. In order to assist your child with these sessions:

1. Provide time for your child to complete these sessions without interruption;

2. Keep your child’s login and password readily available;

3. Refer to the back of this letter for instructions on Ten Marks free summer registration.

Note that students have been accessing SuccessMaker all year and have their login/password in their agenda.

Students who complete a minimum of 15 hours (7.5
in reading and 7.5 in math) before Wednesday, August 19, will receive a homework pass when they return to school.

These students will also be entered into a drawing for a Menchie’s gift card. The last day to complete all summer sessions is Wednesday, August 19, 2015.
