We have been making several changes to the website, so I wanted to share some of the things you can find on here. We have LOTS of resources that can help you and your child.
One of the newest resources that I liated is on the blue bar at the top of our site. It's a link for Spelling City for our Reading Wonders spelling words. When you click on that link. Go to your child's grade level and click on the link that says "2014 Reading Wonders/On Level Spelling." It will give you a list of the Lessons that we have throughout the year. http://www.spellingcity.com/reading-wonders.html
We have tons of other resources listed under the link at the top of the page that says "academics." There should be something here for children of all ages. http://www.stmaryk12.net/domain/242
Finally, if you look under the "Faculty" tab, each grade level has a page. Within the grade level pages, each teacher has linked some of their favorite websites. In many cases, the teachers have put links to the same webpages and resources that they are using in the classroom. Faculty Link
There are many more resources on our website for both parents and teachers. When you get a chance I hope you take the time to explore the links. Any questions you have about our website can be directed to our webmaster.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is warning consumers about con-artists--scammers--who are sending pop-up computer warnings or making phone calls that offer unnecessary and often harmful tech support services.
One scammer actually sent spam emails falsely claiming that the FTC had hired them to remove problem software. As of today, the lawsuit filed by the FTC against this scammer has resulted in the court ordering the defendent to shut down his websites and phone numbers, stop claiming he is affiliated with the FTC, and inform current customers that he is not affiliated with the FTC.
If you received one of those email messages, the FTC want to hear about it.
If you get a pop-up, a call, or an email that contains an urgent message about a virus on your commputer, just STOP. The FTC's advice: "Don't click any links, don't send any money, and don't give anyone control of your computer. The person behind the message probably wants access to your computer to grab your data, install malware, or sell you unnecessary services." Please report these contacts to the FTC's Complaint page.
