Study Island
Study Island will be available for all third grade students once the school year has begun. A notice will be sent home with the student's username and password when the account has been set up.

Study Island is a great way to extend student's learning into the home. All that's needed is a computer and internet connection. To use Study Island, log on to www.studyisland.com, and have your child enter their username and password. Make sure that your child uses pencil and paper when necessary. Study Island is also a great preparation tool for the NJ ASK3 exam in March.
