  • Dear Families,

    Please support your child at home to help them problem solve when doing homework or if your child lets you know they're struggling with a concept. Utilizing online sites is a great way to reinforce skills learned in school. 

    Also, it is imperative that your child is fluent with Multiplication facts up to 12 times tables. The topics moving forward, such as Fractions and Division,  requires the students to have mastery of their facts. Utilizing online sites or just plain old-fashion flashcards are great resources for your child to practice daily. 




    Homework Information:

    Dear Students, 

    I assign homework Mon.-Thurs. most weeks. The homework is posted on the whiteboard daily and then should be written in your student planner. The planner is used as a form of communication; reminders of assigned HW and notes to parents/or me. 

    If you forgot your Math book or need additional help with your Math HW, please use the online resources. Savvas Realize will give you examples of your math lessons in addition to math videos that will reteach the lesson. Please email me if you forget any homework in school because I might give you an alternate assignment.
