How Can You Help at Home? :
Please make sure you name all your child’s belongings and check their red folder daily for homework or letters. Read with / to your child each day, whether its a school reading book, a library book, a bedtime story or simply let your child use their imagination and retell the story from a picture book. Thanks 🙂
