MARCH 2018

Hello All! Spring is right around the corner!

Remember, Spring Break is March 19-30. Students may access the curriculum during Spring Break. This would be a good time to get caught up with or move ahead of the benchmarks. School resumes April 2nd.

Although the students work very hard every day that they are in class, they should be logging on and working for a minimum of ONE HOUR everyday at HOME after school.

The web address for the students to access the curriculum is:

Current Benchmark Completion Rates


All students should check to make sure they have done ALL assignments in each lesson. They can do this by clicking on the "OVERDUE" section of the progress area on the top, front page of Language Arts. Once that is clicked, it will give students a listing of all folders and the assignments that are included. If you click on Unit 1 and Unit 2, there will be a green checkmark next to the items that are complete. If there is no checkmark, it means the student skipped that assignment. Students should make sure that ALL assignments in a unit have a green checkmark before moving on to the next unit. You can also see completion rates on the weekly progress reports that are emailed home. Remember that students should be continuing to work on their lessons from home. They should pick up where they left off at school. The website URL is
