How can I help my child in math?


  • Student should fill out an agenda daily and parent's should check nightly.  Parent's can contact teacher's if there are question's. 
  •  Parent's and student's can check teacher's website for assignments, or homework help. 
  •  Parent's and student's should check grades online at least once a week, for current grades.
  •  Student's should spend a minimum of one hour doing homework each day.  If there is no assignment to complete, student's should read or review notes from classes.
  •  Student's can attend after-school Husky Help, for help to complete work and organize school materials.  Parent's can have teacher sign agenda book for verification of attendance.
  • Parent's can help establish a routine for doing homework at home each night or after noon and check to see how work is being complete
