Some important information you need to know about.
Families are asked to provide some basic school supplies at the beginning of the school year. Click the link below for this year's list. Be sure to check the list carefully because not all teachers within the same grade level request the same supplies.
Students and parents are invited to bring supplies to school on "Back-to-School Night" in late August. Throughout the school year, please check your child's supplies and replenish as their supplies run low.
Sheboygan Area School District and Wisconsin Reading Corps have teamed up and are recruiting full-time and part-time literacy tutors for select elementary schools in Sheboygan. Literacy tutors commit to 11 months of AmeriCorps service. Our tutors are parents, grandparents, college students and recent college graduates, mid-career professionals, and retirees who may want to get more involved at our school, explore a new career in education, re-enter the workforce or give back to their community.
As a literacy tutor, you can help these students gain the skills they need to thrive. Our tutors work one-on-one or in small groups with students age 3 to grade 3. No experience? No problem! Reading Corps provides comprehensive training in strategies proven to help students build skills and become successful readers.
In the Sheboygan Area School District, contact Jim Renzelmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
