Welcome parents and families! The Reading Resource team here at Ettrick wanted to share some technology resources that are great to engage your student in practice, review, and extension of SOL standards and curriculum at home. We are happy to support your child in becoming lifelong and successful readers! If you ever need our help, or have any questions, our contact information can be found under the contacts tab.
