Welcome back!

Now that we're halfway through the school year and everyone is settled in...it's time to update everyone on what's going on in the Ecosystem....

Students can access a tutor between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. daily. To gain access, students just need to get a library card from their local public library. Libraries will work with schools to get all students in a class registered for a card. Just reach out to your local public library for more information. 

Teachers who are teaching students in grades K-5 have access to Tumble Math. This online resource features math concepts using stories and literature to reinforce concepts.
