This week school will be closed on Wednesday in observance of Veteran's Day. Please remember to send your child to school with a water bottle. If they forget, we will provide a water bottle at school. The water fountains are closed but the refillable water stations will be available.
Antioch Elementary provides every student with access to IXL Learning. This resource is particularly helpful if the student utilizes the continuous diagnostic. This requires each student to login to IXL, click the diagnostic arena and complete the diagnostic. The diagnostic should take place each week and only takes approximately fifteen minutes. A current diagnostic score provides recommendations for your child that are appropriate for his or her current developmental level.
You may find these videos helpful as well.
I encourage parents to review this video to guide your understanding of your child's Istation reports. Thank you to Mrs. Sherri Barber for creating this useful tool.
Thank you parents for doing an incredible job helping our staff implement the new dismissal procedures.
