Thank you for participating in our Homer Davis Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences. Our school continues to have an outstanding participation rate with this important school and family team connection. We continue to encourage your participation in supporting your child with homework completion and listening to them read for twenty minutes each night. We appreciate your commitment to be involved with your child’s education and continued school support.
Reading - A major focus in our primary grades is to get our students to learn their letters, letter sounds, and new words on a daily basis. See your child's teacher if you missed their feedback related to your child’s progress during fall conferences. As students move into the intermediate grades, they may read to find out how to use a new game, read a guidebook to gather information about national parks, or read a novel (chapter book) to experience the joy of great literature. The ultimate goal is to have all of our students reading on or above grade level as soon as possible. Please continue to read with your child twenty minutes each night on a consistent basis to encourage fluency and comprehension.
Math - One of our school improvement goals this school year is for each student to improve their success on the Harcourt Math post assessment (grades K-2) and the AzMERIT assessment (grades 3-6). Please continue to expect your child to memorize their math facts through fun activities or challenges at home. Most students who can recall their facts quickly and accurately are very successful as they approach standards that are more difficult in future lessons.
Throughout the course of the year, our school calendar becomes very busy. Here are a few school events taking place during the month of November:
Flowing Wells School District has a unique web page. The district site will link to our school web page. The Homer Davis web page has our school newsletter, updates, staff picture, e-mail accounts, school phone numbers, and a calendar of events.
