    *You can help your child by reading with them at home each evening. 
     Practicing addition and subtraction facts will also benefit your child greatly.
     Flashcards are perfect for this!

     *Another idea for extra academic support is to review your child's daily 
      work papers
at home with them. Ask them questions about the work.
      If items are incorrect on a test, 
etc. , review that skill with your child.


    *Don't forget to use the Caloosa brochure sent home  to access computer sites

      for extra reading and math practice.



      *Also visit for student activites to practice reading. When you

        locate the site, click on "students" tab. When that page loads, there are various

         activites on the right.



     *Please remember to read at home each evening with your child.
      *Students can earn no-uniform passes for bringing in 25 Box Tops for 
        Education found on various

      *Please remember to return library books to school each day. We use them
        here,  as well as at home 
for  homework practice. We will be chosing 3 books

          each time. A.R. books need to be read 2 times with an adult before testing.

          Please remember to record information in the reading log.  The reading   
        log needs to stay in the pocket folder. (homework folder)

         *All students need to practice math facts. (addition and subtraction) 
           Facts need to be memorized to increase speed with math assignments
           and drills.


      *Our curriculum this year is rigorous.

        Please talk with your child about the importance of

       listening and good behavior. Many times classroom behavior is

       reflected in grades.


      *Students may now wear pink uniform shirts in addition to other

        colors previously allowed.
