Thank you for continuing to support reading fluency and comprehension each night for homework. Please communicate with your child’s teacher by completing weekly reading logs. Our school-wide parent goal is to have you read with your child each night for 20-30 minutes. Research shows that setting aside a consistent time to read at home in the evenings improves student achievement and success at school. Asking your child to make a prediction of what will happen next in a story, to summarize what they have read, and to connect something from the story to their life are all good strategies that you may use to get your child to be a better reader.
We look forward to your partnership to prepare our students for the upcoming assessments during the week of April 13 through April 17. Students in Grades 3-6 will take the AzMERIT assessment. Please ensure that your children are going to bed on time, getting enough sleep, and eating healthy food choices. Because it is vital that all students complete these assessments, please ensure that your children arrive at school on time each day.
The biggest district family event and fundraiser of the year, Festival under the Stars, will take place on Friday, April 10 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Flowing Wells High School. Thank you ahead of time to our PTO for organizing volunteers to support the Homer Davis booth in the commons area. Purchase tickets ahead of time in our front office at a discounted rate. A great percentage of the proceeds go directly to the Flowing Wells Education Foundation (FWEF). This organization uses this money each year to support students by funding mini-grants throughout the district. Please bring your family to this exciting event, as there will be a lot fun activities, fine arts performances, and food for everyone to enjoy.
Lastly, I would like to thank all of our families who attended a spring conference to discuss your child’s academic, socio-emotional, and behavior strengths and concerns. Please keep an open line of communication with our staff so your child receives the best support possible. Our goal is to always work together as a team! Continue to let me know if you have any questions or concerns, as we want to provide the best support and quality customer service to all of our families.
