I will use Remind as a tool for communication between home and school. I will be able to send reminders to your cell phone as a text or to an e-mail address. I do not see your cell number, nor do you see mine, but a message is sent to every person who signs up. This will not be used daily but as a way to remind parents about field trips, special event days, and other items of importance.
The simplest way to subscribe is through the link above (click the Remind title), however you can also subscribe by texting @49k6cf to (289) 270-4164.
Here is some information about this year's Math Homework.
Your child will now be receiving math homework. Math will be assigned on Thursday or Friday, to be completed and returned to school by the following Tuesday. I have structured this so that students will have time over several evenings to complete their homework.
Some students will be able to complete the work independently, while others may need some assistance. I encourage you to review your child's homework before Tuesday, and remind them to bring it to school for Tuesday.
We will also be using DreamBox to supplement our math program. DreamBox is an online, Intelligent Adaptive Learning program that helps all students achieve better, faster math proficiency.
Ideally, students should complete one hour of DreamBox per week. I will provide thirty minutes of in-class time for Dreambox - we logged in twice so far during class and students should be ready to go. Students should be completing an additional thirty minutes of DreamBox at home during the week.
