Literacy Partnership with Parents

hilliardreadsWelcome to Growing Readers!  Hilliard City Schools knows that working together to nurture a love of reading will help your child develop into a confident reader. Our team of reading coaches and teachers have put together a web page with ideas and activities that will help to create a bond, and stimulate conversation outside of the school day with parents and students. You can check the web page each month for new topics and activities to do at home. It’s our hope that through this yearlong partnership with parents we will empower our students to be better readers. Visit the Site Now

New Website for Parents to Help with Elementary Math

mathIn response to a November 2013 parent survey asking parents what type of information and help was needed with regards to elementary math, Hilliard City Schools has created a parent website.  Parents asked questions about the curriculum being taught and why it was “different” from when they learned how to add, subtract, multiply and divide.  This website is meant to give parents some background on why different methods are taught at each grade level.  It will also show video examples of ways parents can work with students at home to help alleviate homework stress. more
