Homework /Home Reinforcement 

    Students may not receive homework everyday.
    However, there are numerous skills you can help your child master with additional reinforcement, which will contribute tremendously to their academic progress.
    * Students should practice writing their names (first & last), numbers, letters, and words until the skill is mastered.  
    I-Ready lessons can also serve as home reinforcement of kindergarten academic skills. (Student login and password is required.)
     Below are a list of skills we are working to master by the end of quarter two.
