Dear Little River Elementary School Families,

As we move into our second half of the school year, I want to thank families for partnering with the school staff to support their child’s academic success. Our students are successful when teachers, school staff, families and the community partner together to help each student develop an enthusiasm for learning, respect for themselves and others in addition to developing skills to become a creative, independent thinker and problem solver.

Continue to encourage your child the importance of doing their best and putting forth a good effort in all their schoolwork and homework. Remember that building strong foundation skills in both reading and math will support your child’s success in middle, high school and beyond.

I encourage you to do the following to help your child have a successful school year:

  1. Regularly view and discuss with your child their academic progress using Skyward at .  Create a login and pass code.
  2. Check your child’s take-home folder every day.
  3. Establish a regular homework routine after school for your child.
  4. Communicate regularly with your child’s teacher.
  5. Complete the ADDitions application to participate in school events at Additions Sign Up
  6. Partner with the school staff via the School Advisory Committee and Parent-Teacher Association.
  7. Stay informed and receive up-to-date information via the school website at Little River ES Homepage find and like us on Facebook at Little River Elementary-OCPS and follow us on Twitter @OCPSLittleRiver.

Your child’s teacher and I are always available to answer your questions and discuss your child’s needs. We are available via email or telephone.
