    Dear Parents,

    Soon our third grade students will begin using Khan Academy ( to supplement our math program. After reviewing the Khan Academy math site I believe it will benefit those students who need extra practice, as well as those who are ready to be challenged.

    You will receive e-mail from Khan Academy explaining how you can view your child’s work and progress. I will use the email account listed in the school directory.

    Once the students begin working on Khan, I will send home additional information. If you have any immediate questions, please contact me.
