i-Ready Parents – i-Ready is an interactive online learning program that helps students build essential skills in reading and mathematics. It provides students with personalized online instruction and gives teachers guidance on how they can best support the needs of each and every student. Speak with your child about how using i-Ready will help him/her prepare for class work. Encourage your child to take each lesson and quiz question seriously. Help your child identify and become familiar with the different parts of the student dashboard. Encourage your child to use the tools that will appear at the bottom of the screen in some lessons. Discuss your child’s results by looking at “My Progress” together. Contact your child’s teacher about how often your child should practice at home.
Why attendance matters - Successful schools begin by engaging students and making sure they come to school regularly. That may seem obvious. What’s less obvious is that the consequences of low attendance are serious for all children and for the community, not just the students who miss school. The attendance rate is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. It’s difficult for the teacher and the class to build their skills and progress if a large number of students are frequently absent. In addition to falling behind in academics, students who are not in school on a regular basis are more likely to have behavior problems.
Thanksgiving Meal Salem Elementary will be having a Thanksgiving meal on November 15th open to parents/guardians. We will be only having 50 additional parents/guardians due to the space available in the cafeteria. The first 50 people to call into the school or sign up will be permitted to attend the Thanksgiving meal and eat with their child. The cost of the meal is $4.00.
