We are starting our fifth week of school already. We are so busy learning new things everyday. Is is a joy to see the students moving from place to place with pride and confidence. Parents I really encourage you to read our school newsletter each week. We send it home each Thursday and it is filled with what is happening at Sheldon Academy.
We have changed our policy regarding homework for our pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students beginning this year. We will not be sending packets of paperwork home for them to complete. Instead parents, we are asking that you read to your child each night. Make flashcards with letters and numbers and have fun playing with your child. Research studies have shown that the single most important factor to becoming a good reader is having been read to. So please read each night and discuss what the story was about.
I look forward to a wonderful year and to working together to help your child's first years in school be amazing and educational.
