Dear West Oaks Wildcats Families, 

Our teachers will continue to emphasize the importance of Reading, Math, Science and Writing in daily instruction. However, we are asking you to help us meet our targeted goals. One way you can help is by encouraging your child to read at least 20-30 minutes nightly to support guided reading in the classrooms with an AR book. As a reminder, the Media Center is also available Monday through Thursday from 7:15 - 8:15. We have weekly AR goals and in order to accomplish this we need students reading AR books daily!  We are also challenging students to learn math facts because automaticity is needed for students to become fluent in math. We expect ALL second through fifth grade students to be fluent with their multiplication math facts. The expectations from the State and District have increased, especially with the Florida State Standards. Our teachers cannot do it alone.

With FSA being around the corner, our students in grades 3-5 have a school year to accelerate their learning! Discuss with your child the importance on how they can make a difference in their lives by working hard in class, listening to their teacher, focusing on the lesson being presented by the teacher, and giving their very best. If you are struggling with how to help your child nightly with assignments, please don’t hesitate to on call us.  

If you are on campus for any reason please be sure to review our data results on the walls and in the hallways. Finally, please be sure to look at your child’s “Take Home Thursday” folder to ensure they are completing all class and homework assignments. We are all looking forward to a productive and positive school year!

Sincerely Yours,

Mrs. Cherie Thompson,
