Parent Resources

Curriculum Corner

We are pleased to share this section of our website with a quarterly focus on a curricular topic. Learn more about our initiatives and consider ideas to strengthen the home|school connection to our learning outcomes.

We encourage you and your family to dedicate time to explore new interests this summer. Below is a list of ideas and resources for you and your family to explore.


The Reading Room
Click here to view this website built by our district reading specialists with many options to enjoy summer reading.

Math
We believe that math can be engaging and accessible to all children through meaningful experiences. Games, computational puzzles and coding can engage children in critical thinking and problem solving as they explore their understanding of math concepts. The best way to help promote strong mathematical practices at home is to engage in math activities that foster these skills and allow children to share their thinking.
