Thank You Riverside Elementary!

The ScootPad team was overjoyed to receive these beautiful, well written thank you letters from Mindy Shaw’s 5th Grade Classroom!

Mrs. Shaw is a 5th grade teacher at Riverside Elementary in Chattaroy, Washington. She is also an active member of our Teacher Advisory Board and has been using ScootPad with her classroom over the past year. We are so happy to see ScootPad is making such a big difference in her students’ learning!

We would like to share some of the kind and encouraging words with you:

“This program improved my skills both in math, and in reading.”

“When I move up a unit, it’s a challenge at first, but then I understand the concepts.”

“I thought I could never get better at math, but you guys helped me by letting us use ScootPad.”

“Thank you for helping me be a better math and reading student.”

“I have become a great learner from your program.”

“I have fun and learn at the same time.”

“Thank you guys for letting me challenge myself in the math and reading”

“You have made me feel special for going to the next level”

We want to give a final big “Thank You!” to Mrs. Shaw’s classroom! You and other students like you are the inspiration behind everything we do!

We hope ScootPad has made an impact on your classroom, too! We would love for you to share your experience with us on our “Love ScootPad” page: https://www.scootpad.com/love

Top 10 Reasons to Enroll in ScootPad Summer Program

summer ScootPad’s interactive Summer Program starts in a few days! Enroll your child now to take advantage of all the great benefits our Summer Program has to offer!

 

1) Prevent the “Summer Slide” 
With our specially designed summer curriculum, students will retain the previous year’s material by reviewing the past year’s core concepts.

2) Prepare Students for next grade level
Students will get a head start on the coming school year by working with new concepts from the next year’s grade level.

3) Understand Common Core Standards
Students will gain valuable experience with the Common Core Standards to help prepare them for the transition most schools will be making next school year.

4) Convenient and Self-Paced
Students will only be expected to devote around 5 hours/week to ScootPad which means they can work a little every day, or once a week.

5) Assessment Driven Insights
Monthly assessments will be given so parents can gain real-time insight into how their kids are performing all summer long!

6) Fully Managed by ScootPad
 ScootPad will carry the weight of responsibility of engaging your child this summer, so you can choose to be involved as much as you like.

7) Fun Learning Experience
While learning, kids will have access to over 250 avatars, will be able to add unlimited friends, send unlimited shoutout messages and play learning games.

8) Weekly Updates
Parents will receive weekly updates so they can easily monitor student activity and proficiency to identify improvement needs and you can even assign additional practices.

9) Motivation Tools
Kids will be motivated to learn this summer with the Summer Leaderboard where they can compare their results with other students in their grade level and work to be in the top ranking.

10) Prizes & Awards
All students will receive a ScootPad Summer Certificate, but students will also have the chance to earn 1-year free of our Silver Plan ($38 value), or a ScootPad T-Shirt if they are ranked at the top of their grade level in Reading/ELA or Math.

Today’s post will go over how ScootPad’s Summer program can provide your kids with the tools to start the 2014-15 school year out ahead of the rest with as little as 5 hours of work/week on ScootPad!
