Hello Wicklund Families,

 

This year, the LUSD and Wicklund teachers are implementing Eureka Math and are in our 3rd year implementing this curriculum with your scholars. There are many online resources available for parents to assist their children with homework and understanding the concepts they are learning in their classroom. The website below contains great information for parents on our math curriculum:

Also this year, Wicklund is focusing more on supporting scholars and families with attendance to ensure scholars are at school every day to learn and succeed and incentives will be provided to scholars for having good attendance. To do that, the Wicklund office staff is reaching out directly to parents the moment a scholar has an unexcused absence. If unexcused absences continue, parents are sent a letter explaining their child’s unexcused absences and receive a 2nd follow up phone call from the office staff. If unexcused absences still continue, a meeting is schedule with parents, the scholar, and me to determine appropriate steps to remedy the excessive unexcused absences. If the absences continue after this meeting, an attendance contract will be created to support the scholar. If this is not followed, parents shall then attend a School Attendance and Review Board meeting with the principal and district administration.

 

Having good, daily attendance is critical to the success of all scholars in order to learn and succeed at high levels. This is a priority for LUSD and Wicklund this year so we are leaving none of our scholars behind academically.

 

 

Thanks for your continued support and for supporting the Wicklund staff as we work together to ensure your scholars learn and succeed!

 

Sincerely,

 

Ryan R. Gonzales
