  • Each student has been given a user name and password for IXL math. The District has purchased this for every student in the district. Please encourage your child to use this program and use it often. We will be offering an after school Scholar’s Club so that children who are unable to do IXL Math at home will be able to practice it at school. This is an excellent program and truly reinforces skills taught daily in class!
