Please and Thank You!

  • Please make sure that you are taking time to contact families whose children are not on grade level for either math or reading and recommending summer school. We will be sharing out a drive document with you for you to place those names in. Document your calls/emails in SIS.
  • Please include the summer school flyer in your weekly/biweekly email/newsletter to your families. You recieved this electronic communication this week from Kelly Hobbs.
  • Please continue reminding your families about the Sweeny Showcase through your email and newsletters.
  • Please encourage your kiddos to register for the ROAR Run. This is our buildings largest fundraiser of the year!

Reading Benchmarks

You may begin to start testing your high students now but make sure you are still meeting with your low groups. All other students may be tested starting on April 25th. Please make sure to have all data entered in SIS by May 13th.


In regards to ceilings, some of you had voiced a frustration with me on this and I did some digging. This week when I met with a grade level rep before school, I said to stop one grade level above where they currently are at for your advanced kiddos.


I talked to Jennie and she shared this document with me. I wanted to make sure each of you had it as well. Please let me know if you have questions. Again, Laura, Kirsten, Chris and myself are willing to help you test your kiddos too!
