Attendance Makes a Difference

Please visit this site to see the difference that consistent attendance makes:  Attendance Works

Math

We have a new Math curriculum.  You can access the online materials by your student logging into his school account, going to Classlink (a drop down menu from ckschools.org bookmark found at top left).  After logging into classlink, The Connect Ed is the math program:     Please explore the resources to help your child develop their math skills.

Reading

Journeys is our reading program which can be found through classlink, then using the Think Central icon:
  Students need to remember to add @ckstudents.org to their login name if it doesn't appear.  Now click on "My Library".  This will give you access to their Journey's Student Book and Leveled Readers.  You and your child can read through the stories together!  Check with your child's teacher to know which lesson they are on if your student does not remember.
