Math Resources – Teachers have worked to share a letter with all parents that contains information about the specific resources available for students to master the material in the math curriculum. We have placed a link to these Math Resources on our school website main page http://sierrabonita.nebo.edu. If you have not received this information or have any questions about login information, access codes, etc., please contact your child’s teacher or the front office.  We want to make sure all families have received this information and that all students are able to access these mathematics resources.

Before School Mathematics Lab – From 8:15-8:55am each school day, a school staff member is running our Mathematics Lab. This lab has been set up for kindergarten through sixth grade students to use the online mathematics resources including ALEKS (3rd-6th) and Planet Turtle (K-5th).  All students are invited to participate.  If you have any questions about this offering, please contact the school office.
