Posted January 22nd, 2014 by Elizabeth Maltz

It was great meeting with so many of you during the second round of conferences.  It is always a wonderful opportunity to discuss the progress that is being made by all of the students.  Many parents and students were asking for extra resources to be used at home in order to accelerate growth and prepare for assessments such as the MAP test.  Here are some sites that you might find helpful:
