·        Emergency Contact Information – Please contact the school if we do not have your current emergency contact information.  If you have a new phone number or email the school requires that information.

·        Each week, your child will be bringing home books at his/her independent reading level (good fit books). Please make time each night to allow your child to read these to you.  An important component of strengthening your child’s reading skills is regular home reading practice. Make sure to focus on comprehension by having your child understanding what is being read.
·        For some fun math practice at home with your child, play a math game and continue to practice addition and subtraction math facts.
As always if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me at school, send a note in your child’s communication bag, or send me an email.
