  • IMPORTANT NOTICE!

    Last week we sent a message home with your child(ren) regarding parental permission to use digital resources at school. We wish to clarify this permission process as many parents thought that by signing the message and returning it to school, they were giving permission. However, that is not the case. 

    ·       If you intend to use the online permission form, you DO NOT need to sign and return the form that was sent home.  Rather, signing and returning the form indicates to us that you prefer a paper copy of the permissions instead of doing so electronically.

    ·       Otherwise, we ask you to complete the online permission process no later than July 15th.

    We are sorry for any confusion this may have caused, and we thank you for your diligence in this matter.

  • Dear Parents of Incoming Grade 8 students,

    As the school year wraps up, many families begin to think about summer learning opportunities to help their children maintain or build upon this year's math learning. Research shows that many students lose 2-3 months of grade level math equivalency over the summer. As a result, we would like to bring your attention to a free program offered by TenMarks Education that will provide your child with access to a powerful, personalized summer math program designed to help him or her reverse summer learning loss. Participation in the program is completely optional and is offered free this summer to families.  More information on TenMarks is available here: https://www.tenmarks.com/assets/pdf/parent_summer_program.pdf

    If you choose to sign up, please use the code below. This code connects your account with your child’s school. Grade levels have different codes that provide you the option to send your child’s learning progress to his or her next-year teacher. None of your child’s data will be shared with the school system unless you opt to do so in August. Here is how you can sign up for your free TenMarks Summer Math account:

    1. Beginning today, you can visit http://summer.tenmarks.com and sign up. 

    Please use Summer Access Code: S14HMS5285

    1. Before summer break, you’ll receive an email with access details for your child and for you to monitor his or her progress. 

    2. At the start of the program, your child will receive a short diagnostic assessment based on the grade he or she is entering this fall. 

    3. The assessment will be automatically graded and TenMarks will create a personalized program, designed for your child to prepare for the upcoming year. 

    4. You can create custom rewards to keep your child motivated – pizza, ice cream, or a trip to the zoo! It’s all up to you! 

    An hour a week is all it takes for your child to strengthen his or her math skills, and prepare for the year ahead. The TenMarks Summer Math Program will guide your child through a personalized program, one topic at a time, helping him refresh what he knows, and learn what he has not yet mastered. Each assignment contains embedded instruction (hints, video lessons, and interventions) to help your child refresh concepts from the past year and prepare for the ones ahead. 

    The 3-month program starts in the first week of June. To start, visit the URL below to register. Please remember to type in your Access Code. The attached flyer offers a closer look at this optional program, or you can find out more at http://summer.tenmarks.com.
