Note to parents:  If you have any questions about the homework, please contact me at Sheila.Kelley@jppss.k12.la.org, or by calling or texting my cell phone: (504)250-4552. Unfortunately, JPPSS policy prohibits STUDENTS from contacting the teacher via text or email.  I welcome contact from parents, so don't hesitate to get in touch.

Students in reading are responsible for reading and testing on at least one Accelerated Reader books of their choice within their reading levels per quarter.  These tests are taken on the computer in class when a student finishes a book, and they count as test scores.  Please encourage your child to select appropriate books (one grade level below, on grade level, or a grade level above his/her reading level) and read them each night. Students are given 10 minutes of supervised reading time per day, and a wide variety of AR books are provided in the classroom and in the school library. Students should be bringing these books to and from school daily.  Librarians at public libraries can also assist in finding AR books appropriate for your child.  To check a book level, simply use Google to search the book title and the phrase "AR book level".  

Kindest regards,

Mrs. Kelley
