Welcome to Our New Website

We are pleased to welcome you to our new and improved, responsive (mobile friendly) website. We are grateful to the many district and school staff members who worked together to envision a website that reflects how much we care about our students. Our partnership with School Webmasters has made our vision a reality. Working with School Webmasters also helps us keep our websites ADA compliant for those with disabilities. We hope you’ll check back in with us often!

Do You Have a ClassDojo Account?

Tips for Raising Scholars

Learning starts at home, and as a parent or guardian, you are the most important teacher. Here’s a few simple ways you can help your child succeed. 

  • Be generous with praise. Observe your child carefully and comment on the things they do do well. When you see an area that needs improvement, find a positive way to talk about it with your child. 
  • Encourage "personal best." Help your child by encouraging him or her to do the best in school and at home. Remember, "personal best" does not mean "perfect," and learning is not the same as high grades. Children, like adults, need the freedom to make mistakes and to learn from them. 
  • Make learning a priority. Your attitude toward school attendance, education, and involvement in the school makes a strong and lasting impression on your child. Show your child, by example, that learning is a priority. 
  • Show interest in school work. 
    • Talk about school each day. 
    • Ask to see classwork. 
    • Have your child read aloud to you. 
    • Read to and with your child from a variety of material in your first language. 
    • Encourage your child to discuss new ideas and opinions. 
    • Show appreciation for good efforts. 
  • Offer suggestions for success. Help your child use the following strategies to improve performance in school: 
    • Read the assignment when it is given. 
    • Keep a list of new vocabulary. 
    • Proofread assignments to catch errors before writing a final draft. 
    • Review notes before a test. 
  • Schedule study time. Set up an area for homework away from noise and distractions. Post a family calendar that schedules school project deadlines, after-school activities, mid-term dates, exam periods, and report card dates.
