Daily Folders

Please remember to have your child bring his/her blue folder to school every day. 

Please check your child’s “Daily Folder. 

Homework/ Daily Folder

Every student should be reading an AR book(s) of his/her choice weekly so he/she can meet his/her goal for the second nine weeks. AR points are earned by taking tests at school on books he/she has read on his/her level or above and earning at least 80%. Students can take AR tests on books from our classroom library, school library, public library, or books from home as long as they are AR and on or above his/her reading level. Please remember to sign your child’s AR weekly reading log located in the back of the blue daily folder.

Please remember to practice a quick recall of basic counting and addition and subtraction facts using numbers 1-20. It is extremely important your child knows how to recall basic facts up to the number 20. I would recommend spending 10 minutes each day doing math flashcards.
