Science is Fun In House Field Trip- August 25th

Today in your child's folder a permission slip for our in house field trip will be coming home. The cost is $15 per child. They will participate in exciting hands on activities at school! Please send in the money ASAP!

Interims and BOG Scores

Today in your child's Blue Take Home folder, their interim reports and the Beginning of Grade Reading test scores will be coming home. Please review both and let me know if you have any questions.

The interim is meant to give you a snapshot of how your child is doing on our current curriculum. There is no grade given for Social Studies as we have focused the first half of our semester on Science. The interim score comes from benchmark testing (mClass reading and EADMS math) and observations made during independent work time.

First Quarter Conferences
