2018 CAS Arts Award WinnersA Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

Please join me in congratulating sixth-graders, Jeannette and Ryan, JMS winners of this year's Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS) Arts Award! Both students will be recognized at the Aqua Turf along with other winners from across the district and state.

Did you know that frequent use of Reflex will help your child to master basic facts in a fun and effortless manner? According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, fact fluency is more than just memorizing facts. Students become proficient with their math facts after building a solid understanding of the facts through plenty of practice that takes place over time. Once facts are committed to memory, children are able to focus their brain power on solving complex problems quickly and accurately. 

Once children are conceptually ready to begin, their teacher will set up a Reflex account for them. This account is available for use at home as well as at school. Home use is quite desirable, as the more that students practice, the more proficient they become. In order to maximize results, it is recommended that students complete a full lesson (approximately 15-20 minutes) for at least three days per week. Students will know that they have completed a full lesson when the green light illuminates on the upper right hand side of the screen. 

Have a wonderful holiday weekend,
KC Chapman, Principal
