This plan will be sent out via newsletters and email to communicate with the parents. The parents will receive information
on strategies to try at home that mirror the strategies being used in the classroom. Parents will be involved in the program
by working with students on science reading and vocabulary at home. Parents and students will have the opportunity to
provide feedback about the efficacy of specific strategies via online survey.
