Personal Libraries at Home:

Students have unlimited access to thousands of myON digital books to read outside of school time, so they are sure to find books that match their interests.
Reading every day is important! Here are some benefits for children and adults:
• Reading exercises the brain
• Reading increases vocabulary
• Reading increases general knowledge
• Reading sharpens memory
• Reading strengthens writing skills
• Reading fosters concentration and the ability to focus
• Reading is motivational
• Reading reduces stress and helps you relax
• Reading improves sleep
• Reading increases your imagination and creativity
Because myON is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, students can read anytime and anywhere they have an Internet connection. Students can track their reading progress with myON, and they can share that information with you, too. Help your students establish at-home reading goals for this school year and celebrate with them when they reach those goals. View this video to learn more about how you can use myON at home.

Kindergarten Registration:

Do you know someone who will be 5 years old by August 31, 2023.  It is time to register them for kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year.  Registration began on Friday October 14.  Please go to our school website/enrollment to complete the first step in the process.  Please pass this information along to friends and family.  Early registration helps in planning the correct # of classes and helps families receive their track requests.
