Important Reminders:

Homework Reminders:

It is essential that your child completes all of the assigned homework each day.  In addition to this, your child’s planner MUST be signed daily.  This is our easiest form of communication.    



Fourth Quarter A.R. goals have been set for your child!  Here are some things to help them with meeting their goal:


  • Quality over quantity; Read the book more than once, check for understanding, and discuss it before taking a quiz
  • Take their time on the AR quizzes.  If they miss any questions, not only does it lower their average (85% required), it also reduces the point value they receive for it. 
  • Please remember that A.R. quizzes will NOT be deleted.  One "rushed" test can slow their progress of accomplishing their goal.
  • You can check their scores and goal status by clicking here.  At curriculum night, you received a flier with your child's log-in credentials into LaunchPad.   From there, go into "Instructional Apps" then to "Renaissance Home Connect".  You can also click at the top of the page to set up email notifications for each test your child takes. :)
