SELF SELECTED READING (SSR): Independent Reading and Conferencing. SSR

The teacher will hold conferences with 2-3 children daily as the other children read. Teacher keeps a conference form recording each child’s individual progress, preferences, and responses.




The school has acquired a subscription to IXL for all students in Grades KG-5. This is an individualized on-line program that reinforces math skills across the curriculum and is aligned to our Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment that we administer to all students in Grades KG-10 two times during the school year.

Students will be expected to practice during the week.  We will be able to check their accuracy via the website. Each week we will direct you to the activities the children need to work on.

IXL ACCOUNTS – Please encourage your child to practice by checking the weekly blog and have children complete the practices assigned. Username and passwords will be assigned this week to each of the second grade students. If you are unclear about any aspect of the IXL please feel free to contact me. This week they are free to practice any IXL skill as we start next week.





EarlyDismissalEarly Dismissal Friday 25th of August @ 11:45 a.m.

DISMISSAL – We remind our parents that our student’s safety is our number one priority, and that every mechanism we use during the dismissal at 3:00 p.m. is geared towards that purpose. Please follow the instructions and procedures established by the teachers on parking lot duty, and ask your drivers to do so as well. Slow down when driving in and out of campus, and roll the window down so the teachers in the parking lot can call your child(ren) ahead of time. We thank you for your patience and cooperation in these first days of the school year.

 STICKERS FOR YOUR VEHICLES – Each family has a sticker for his/her car free of charge. Additional stickers may be purchased if needed at the Administrative building. Please make sure you bring the license plate number for the car(s) you are purchasing sticker(s) for.


Mrs. Elena Borjas
