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 .

Reminders: The   school   day   starts   at   8:30   a.m.      Students   are   to   be   in   their   seats   promptly   at   8:30.

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.
