Writing That Makes Sense
As your child first learns to write, his stories may not always make sense to others. Use these 2 ideas to build a love of writing:
1. Have your child tell you their story and you jot down the ideas.
2. Ask your child questions and encourage him to add details.
    Student school attendance each day is critical to student learning. Students who participate consistently in the learning process are more successful learners.

    Absence from school should only be due to an illness, family emergencies or medical appointment. Please return children to school after the appointment.
