Valuable Information to Achieve Academic Success

Hello Parents,
Just one more month and we will be back to school. We hope you enjoyed your time off so far. In order to start the 2014-15 year strongly, we hope you remember all we discussed at our parent meetings throughout the past year.
Have you been going to the My-ON website to practice with your child? Teachers have a record of the scores and participants. Thank you to the families working with us to help their children succeed.
Here is the link:
 www.myon.com.  Please use the green bookmarks with the log-in information given to you in May.
Here is the link to the power point presentations each teacher made for literacy strategies last year. You can get a head start with your children for their upcoming grade.
Our school website has many valuable resources to keep your child practicing and learning.
Students should be reading and writing daily!

Use these bookmarks to guide you in asking questions while your child reads to you.  They are translated into Arabic as well.
The media center at Oakman is open every Thursday from 9-12 with great activities with the librarian. You can check out books as well.  Many great activities can be found at the Centennial Library on Michigan Avenue too. Here you can check out even more books.
Read, read, read and play less video games!  Please monitor the amount of time your child sits in front of a screen whether it be the t.v or computer.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and get ready for the best year yet!
