Parent Corner

Getting Involved

Are you looking for ways to get involved in your child's education? Teachers and students would love to have your help. It can be easy as cutting things out at home or volunteering at the school. Teachers always need help with bulletin boards, someone to read with students, and just be here as a mentor.

Dads, don't forget you can be a WatchD.O.G.  Just imagine the pure admiration from your child, as well as, all the other kids you will see!




Helping your child

You can help your child succeed by listening to them read, talking with them and helping with homework.  You can also use a collection of online resources.

Tumble Books is an collection of animated, talking picture books which teach young children the joys of reading.  Children can play games associated with the book after reading. 

Wacky Web Tales is a fun game that helps you practice your grammar skills!

Make sure you name your fish before you start playing these fun math games.  There are many different activities to choose.

Use your karate skills to master your math facts.
