IT’S ELEMENTARY!

SUPPLY LIST

Debbie Farelli, Elementary Principal Thank you to the school families and community for all your support. Everyday Math is the new math program that we are using in grades K-5. The program lays a strong foundation in number sense and number theory through a spiral curriculum. Students understand the relationship between skills and build concept knowledge throughout their elementary education. The Everyday Math program also develops critical thinking and problem solving skills through relating math to real world application. We know that it is important to equip parents with the tools to support their children’s learning at home. Everyday Math offers the student work pages, textbook, and many resources online. Families can access the Everyday Math website from the Western Reserve website: 1 . www.westernreserve.k12.oh.us 2 . The Everyday Math link is found under the Student section which is on the right side of the screen. 3 . You will need to choose your child’s teacher (grades K-2) or their math teacher (grades 3-5.) You will also need their login information and password. Your child can give you that or you can contact their teacher. 4 . We recommend that you take some time to explore the website. There are many valuable resources. Reminders: The school day starts at 8:30 a.m. Students are to be in their seats promptly at 8:30. Parents must accompany their child to the office to sign them in when they are late for any reason. State law requires parents to call the office between 7:45 .m. and 9:00 a.m. to report an absent student each day the student is absent. The reason for the absence must be given. If you have not already paid your mandatory $20 supply fee, make your check payable to Western Reserve Local Schools. This fee must be received prior to your child receiving his/her report card. Fees not paid will also result in your child’s ProgressBook and other accounts being disable. Inform the office in   writing of: name change due to divorce/marriage; new home address; new home, cell, or work phone number; new emergency contact information, etc. When a student is riding a bus other than his/her assigned bus or is being dropped off at a different address, you must write a note that includes: date; student’s name; destination address; telephone number of person receiving your child. If your child is getting off the bus with another student, the office must also have a note from the other student’s parent. When a student is being picked up by another parent, a note must be received from both you and the other student’s parent.
