How are items checked out?

Parents can come to the center and choose items for their use. Simply sign the check-out log and keep the items for up to two weeks. If you are not able to come to the school during school hours, e-mail Margie Cannella and let her know what items you need. She will send them home with your child. The items may also be returned by your child.

What are examples of materials available for check-out?

There are reading/language arts and math games and activities for grades pre-k through five. Sunken Treasure Phonics Game, Sound-It-Out Puzzles, Let’s Go Shopping Money Game, and Auntie Pasta’s Fraction Game are just a few of the engaging and interactive resources available.

What are the benefits of using these materials?

When you and your child spend time together in meaningful activities, you become an active partner in his/her education. This leads to improvement in student academic achievement. Parent involvement in home learning activities positively influences a child’s behavior and school success!
