A Parents' Guide to Success

ssA Parents’ Guide to Student Success”, is a document which will help you understand what your child is learning this year, and also give you ideas of ways to help them at home.  These guides are written for each grade level, so if you have more than one child please look for each different grade level guide.  The State of Idaho and Shoshone Elementary are highly committed to teaching the Idaho Common Core Standards.  We believe these standards are designed to ensure each child will be prepared for success in college and workforce.  Click here to view "A Parents' Guide to Student Success".

Fuel Up to Play 60, Mayor Walking Challenge

A Special Thank You
