Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How should I prepare my child for the start of the year?
    To help prepare your child for the start of the school year, it's a good idea to:
  • Establish a routine a few weeks before the first day of school. This can include gradually adjusting their sleep schedule, practicing self-care skills such as dressing and hygiene, and setting up a designated homework space.
  • Talk to your child about what to expect during the school day, including routines, procedures, and any changes due to COVID-19.
  • Attend any orientation or back-to-school events offered by the school to help your child feel more comfortable and excited for the upcoming year
What can I do to help my child succeed?
    To help your child succeed in elementary school,
  • establish a consistent routine
  • encourage regular attendance
  • communicate with your child's teacher
  • provide a supportive home environment
  • encourage a love for learning
How often should my child read? What reading programs do you use at school?
It is recommended that elementary students read for at least 20 minutes per day outside of school. However, the frequency of reading can depend on your child's age and reading level. We have assisted apps, such as RazKids, for students to use to help them get in the habit of reading.
How can I get feedback about my child’s academics and behavior?
All teachers communicate through Google Chat for each of their classes. Parents are invited into these group chats and are able to send private messages to each teacher. This is a great way to get updates regarding your child's performance at school.
Do you have any after-school programs?
Yes, we have academic support for students who need help with their school subjects. We are also planning to include other skills-based after-school classes for students soon.
