Parents, do you need a quick tutorial on how to sign up for Schoology? Click here for information on how you can access all of your children's accounts in one place.
Do you have children in 3rd through 6th grades? Are you wondering about TNReady assessments?
The Tennessee Department of Education has developed an updated Parent Guide to Being TNReady for the 2016-17 school year (download here) and a supplemental Guide on TNReady Supports for Students with Disabilities (download here).
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child's teacher or the school's administrators.
Want to see your child succeed in school? Let him / her see that you value education. Please take 15-20 minutes each night to read with your child, and model reading by "powering down" and picking up a good book or magazine.
You can also turn everyday activities into opportunities to explore mathematics in a real-world context. (For example: Have your kindergartner count and sort silverware or socks after washing. Older students can figure out how much sales tax will be charged on items they want to purchase.)
It's also important to get your child to school on time every day. At Avoca, children should be in their seats ready to learn by the time the 8:10 bell rings. Learn more about the importance of regular attendance by watching the following video.
Welcome Back, Dragons!

Looking for a great way to get your PK-6th grader to write? Please consider having your child(ren) nominate an Avoca teacher for the WTFM / Milligan College Teacher of the Month. They’ll even get experience “citing evidence” as they give reasons for recognizing their teacher(s). More information is available at http://wtfm.com/default.asp?pid=736418.
