Hello parents! Tonight in your child’s take home folder you will find a log in password for Xtra Math. This is not assigned homework, but encouraged at home for practice in basic math facts. The paper does not need to be returned to school. Xtra math is available on any device and is free. Please give it a try at your convenience.
