Owen, Thomas and Charlotte’s

On our webpage there is a link for Successmaker. Look on the right side, under
DOWNLOADS and you will see it. I am sending home your child’s login information.
Please help them practice logging in and walk them through a few sessions this
and reading are both there for them to use. We use this program at
school and it will track your child’s progress and work at their level. If you have any
trouble using the program, make sure your Java is up to date on your PC. If it is not,
when you lo
g in it may ask you to update; you’ll need to do this for it to work. The
program will not work on smartphones, iPhones, iPads or most tablet devices.
Please email me the word SUCCESSMAKER for bonus dots for your child.
