NEW! Starting next week--------------------------Study Hall! -------------------------------------------------


12:05-12:35   LOCATION: Room 203


This study hall is child centered, where students take responsibility for learning. It is the student’s choice.


If the student feels they need time to do homework, need help with classwork, they want to have extra time to get help or a space to work independently.






It is NOT:

NOT as punishment

NOT Time out because of a behavior issue.

NOT because they forgot boots or it’s too cold outside.

NOT indoor recess


ALL students should have 30 minutes of recess daily (per district policy). If a student chooses not to go to recess to receive extra help, ---by their own choice (totally optional), ---- then they may come to study hall.


Students will have an entrance slip to say why they are there. It will be signed by Ms. Glocker before they leave.

This year your child has been using Lexia® Core5® Reading, a fun computer-based individualized program that has helped millions of students. The activities in Core5 support and build on our classroom curriculum and focus on developing reading skills in six areas: phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.Here’s how Lexia Core5 Reading works: 

 ● Your child began Core5 at a starting point that fit his or her needs and works in online activities throughout the week.  ● Online activities include direct instruction and feedback as your child learns new skills. ● Progress and performance in the program is reported so teachers can provide help when needed. ● Paper-and-pencil activities may also used for practice and may be done in school or brought home for extra practice. ● Achievement certificates may be sent home to celebrate success and to show progress in the program. We hope you share in our excitement about this program!  Have a good week and stay warm,
