To help, I have provided our Instructional Calendar (shows upcoming units of study) and other resources that you may use to assist your child at home. Check out the Useful Links and the Daily Lessons/Instructional Documents Link for the lessons & activities! Also, it is very important to have your child continue to read each night for at least 20 minutes! They may also write about what they read to help with comprehension and writing. Other great websites to help with reading/math are Dreambox & Prodigy (math), IXL (Reading, Math, Science, & S.S.), and SOL Pass. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns! 
Thank you for your continued support!!!


My name is Akrista Hairston and I am very excited about having your child this year! This is my fourth year teaching here at River Oaks Elementary School. I've also taught 5th grade and 2nd grade at River Oaks. Prior to teaching in this county, I've been a PALS Tutor for four years in Martinsville, VA.
I am from the very small town of Martinsville, Virginia and moved to Woodbridge in the summer of 2016. I graduated from Averett University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and a Master of Education Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I enjoy spending time with my family and husband! I truly believe that all students are capable of learning! I am really looking forward to sharing their many successes with you!
