Study Island

Students are required to complete weekly study island.

Study Island is a weekly assignment – you have 8 days to complete the work. Please plan vacations accordingly so you can complete the work. Extended time is not given to assignments with ongoing deadlines.


Please allow your children to use the website listed below to help them with their weekly spelling words.

They can practice spelling tests, play fun games with their words, and other activities. It’s a great resource. All the spelling lists have been uploaded for entire year! Check the website out! https://www.spellingcity.com/list-management.html#/my-lists
