Parents, we need your help!  The students need to pass at least 2 Achieve articles per week with a score of 75% or better on their first try.  We do one in the classroom, and the students are assigned one for homework each week.  Please help by following up with them on their homework.  If they don’t pass the homework assignment, have them select another article of their choice.  Remind them to read the article 3 times, and to find their evidence in the text.  Thank you!
