Summer Resources for Families

In order to help keep up your child's skills over the summer, your child's teacher sent out reading lists and a math activity calendar with plenty to help them practice (off screen!).  A very big thank you to our amazing district curriculum specialists, Jessica DeFrances and Jaynene Dellitt-Young, who worked tirelessly this summer to support teachers in supporting your children's learning, and who created these summer resources for you.

Online Educational Support and Enrichment

The resources LINKED HERE are both programs your children already use at school, as well as those which might require creation of a new account at home. For programs children have already been using in school, our teachers will be sending out any necessary class codes that you should use to access their accounts.

Helpful Technology Resources for Children

  • Dreambox  is an adaptive, individualized math program that is aligned with state standards in a gaming environment.  It is meant for your child to practice on independently so that your child’s mistakes and confusions can provide Dreambox with information about what appropriate next practice steps will best meet your child’s needs. Your child’s mathematical learning is best supported when s/he/they practice every day.  Your child’s classroom teacher and I are able to see your child’s progress and hope to cheer them on. You should have received your child’s classroom code from her/his/their teacher.
  • Lexia is a comprehensive technology-based literacy program that extends learning for students who are advanced and accelerates learning for students who struggle. It’s an all-in-one package that seamlessly integrates into the classroom.
  • Music and Art Resources. Our Art and Music Teachers, Marissa Wakeen and Vickie Livermore, have gathered some resources for you to support and enrich your child(ren)’s time.
  • Parent Tech Support form. Families should use this form to request technical assistance from the Belmont Public Schools Technology Department.

Playlist: Daily Greetings for Butler Children

Dear Families,

We have created a playlist of the Daily Greetings for our Butler Children. The videos in our playlist will play automatically, one after another, or you can select any that you like from the list. Our hope is that these videos will help the children feel connected to our school through our continuing daily rituals and community celebrations.
