Oregon Davis builds in time for students to read at school each day, but research shows that this may not be enough. Students who read at home in addition to reading at school tend to have an increase in student achievement. Below are some ways to incorporate reading at home!

  1.     Read the cereal box each morning
  2.     Find a reading website or app that your child enjoys
  3.     Look up information about a favorite subject on the computer
  4.     Take regular trips to the library
  5.     Start a book club with friends
  6.     Model reading by reading in front of and to your children

National Bus Safety Week takes place in October. The school bus is a national icon and representation of our schools and students. However, despite its large size, color and lighting system, motorists violate the school bus stop laws on a daily basis. Drivers report stop arm violators every day.

Would you join our community as we fight to make people aware of the school bus stop arm laws and the danger of not paying attention? This is a community responsibility. Please take the time to view the following video. Keep our kids safe.

Parents and teachers share the same goals for children and students; they want each individual to do their best. This will happen when parents and teachers work together. This can happen in a number of ways.

  •         Keeping lines of communication open between parents and teachers.
  •         Parents help by setting aside time for schoolwork at home.
  •         Teachers can send newsletters, create blogs, make phone calls and send report cards.
  •         Parents can attend parent/teacher conferences  to make sure that parents, teachers and students are all on the same page.
  •         Parents can volunteer in the classroom or building.
  •         Parents can help the teacher by letting them know about things happening at home.
  •         Teachers and parents can work as a team to provide the best for students.
