2. Please remind your child to READ at least 20 minutes each night (both orally and silently). Besides demonstrating your own love for reading, this is the single most important thing that you can help with. Please have your child record time spent reading on the bookmarks for the reading incentive program.
If you want to check the lexile number for a book, go to lexile.com.
3. Basic facts need to be practiced at home. Your child has a set of triangular flash cards from the math program, and, if you wish, we can send home practice tests. I will also send home math kits for students demonstrating a need for more practice.
4. Occasionally, on Friday there will be homework in the red folder. Those assignments will be due on the following Monday. Please set some time aside early in the weekend for completing homework. Also, please encourage your child to do quality work.
5. Students need to bring a flashlight on Fridays for Flashlight Friday! If you do not have an extra flashlight at home, please send me a note and I will see what I can do to make one available to your child.
ABSENCE INFORMATION If you have to schedule an absence during the school day (dentist, doctor, etc.), the best time is from 10:50 to 12:35. Your child will miss only her/his special class, independent reading, and lunch.
If your child is gone for the day, please call the school to arrange to pick up homework. I can have it waiting for you in the office at 3:00 p.m.
