Make it an i-Ready Summer!Dear Parents/Guardians,
Your children are able to continue their learning with i-Ready over school breaks, and summer is the vacation where they could use it most! i-Ready provides personalized academic and enrichment activities to meet your student’s specific needs. These i-Ready MATH instruction lessons will support students’ growth, development and Math grade level readiness.
By working on the prescribed (green button) and teacher assigned (blue button) i-Ready lessons, your child will be addressing individual skill deficits and key grade level skills/standards that will help ensure they are proficient on prerequisite skills for next year.
All you need to get started are a computer, internet, Adobe Flash Player, and the following:
  • -  Run a system check on your computer at: http://www.i-ready.com/support/
  • -  Website: https://clever.com/in/scs
  • -  Student Username: same as they use to log into Clever/i-Ready at school
  • -  Student Password: same as they use to log into Clever/i-Ready at school
    In support of i-Ready, please monitor your child’s usage and provide assistance when necessary. You may check your child’s progress by having the student log in and click the “My Progress” tab. Here you will be able to see exactly what skills your student has been working on and how he/she is doing.
    The program will be available for use through 7/28/18, when it locks for an 18-19 refresh.

ATTENTION 8th Grade Parents

Greetings, Eighth Grade Parents,
Eighth graders should be making their course selections next week for the ninth grade during their social studies course.  Please be certain you have registered your child for the 2018-2019 school year.  If you have not registered please do so as soon as possible.  Students that have already registered will be given priority for their course selections.
I have not set a date for course selection at this time.  I am waiting for a few technical issues to be resolved.
Thank you for your continued patience with the process.
Warm regards,
Johnnie
