AERIES Parent Portal

Starting in the 2016-2017 school year the Rocklin Unified School District will further enhance the use of our existing Student Information System (Aeries) by enabling the use of online Parent and Student "portal accounts."

Aeries Portal accounts will complement our continued efforts to improve school-to-home communication by providing parents and students online and timely access to information about:

  • Attendance

  • Grade books (elementary schools*)

  • Progress reports and report cards

In the future, our goal is to use this system to significantly reduce paperwork by maintaining emergency contact information online and making the back-to-school/1st day packet process more convenient and efficient for parents!

Grades K-6 Parent Portal Implementation: September 19-October 14

Bridges K-5 Math Program

 

How Will My Child Learn Math This Year?  

Your child’s classroom will use Bridges in Mathematics second edition, a comprehensive curriculum for grades K–5. Bridges is a rigorous program designed to address the new math standards in a way that’s enjoyable and accessible to all learners.

The curriculum focuses on developing in students a deep understanding of math concepts, proficiency with key skills, and the ability to solve new and complex problems. Learning activities tap into the intelligence and strengths all students have by presenting mathematically powerful material alive with language, pictures, and movement.

Students in a Bridges classroom talk about math, describe observations, explain methods, and ask questions. They are encouraged to find multiple ways to solve problems and show different ways of thinking. This is a vital way to help students build more flexible and efficient ways to solve increasingly complex problems. Hands-on activities engage them in exploring, developing, testing, discussing, and applying mathematical concepts. 

How can families help?

Visit the Support for Families page on the Math Learning Center website (http://mathlearningcenter.org/families ), where you will find:

  • ❚  Unit overviews that explain what your child will be learning

  • ❚  Tips for helping your child with homework

  • ❚  Links to more information about each grade level of Bridges

  • ❚  Links to additional resources, including books and free online games

 
NOTE: Want you student to practice their math skills with some fun and interactive games???
