    • extra paper (looseleaf or spirals)
    • highlighters

    Tutorials: Tutorials for for ELA class are held on Tuesday afternoons until 4:00 PM or by appointment. Transportation is NOT provided.

    Homework: There will not be nightly homework for this class unless a student does not finish in class, was absent, or if extra practice is needed outside of tutorials.  We will be working very hard each day in class, and it will eliminate the need for additional assignments outside of class. We will also do independent reading time in class every day.  Reading for an additional 20 minutes or more a night is recommended since it helps become a stronger reader and improves test scores.

    Contact Information:  Parental involvement and communication is key to making sure your child is successful!  Please never hesitate to email or call with any questions, concerns, or even positive feedback!
