GRADE SCHOOL PROGRAM DETAILS:
In the early grades (K-5), academic emphasis is on reading and writing. Teachers keep in close contact with parents regarding student progress, either via Fast Direct, notes home, or behavior/homework logs. Lower-grade teachers send home a weekly newsletter to let parents know what topics will be taught in class, as well as any test dates, special events, important assignments due, etc.
Most homework given in the early grades is practice reading, plus any assignments not completed in class, extra practice needed, or special projects.
