Our Swun Math program has parent letters for each unit of instruction. Hopefully, these letters will give parents and families a better understanding of what the students are working on in class, and allow the families to work with students at home, in a more focused manner.
Follow the link below to Naviance, a new college and career planning website the district would like us to explore and use to plan for the students' futures. Thank you!
I am college bound!
