Today teachers worked to plan the upcoming weeks, and finalize grades for the second-trimester report cards. Report cards will be accessible next Wednesday, March 9th. As we are in our final trimester and the weather is turning we tend to see some increased behaviors, especially at lunch and recess. Please review expectations with your son or daughter, we are planning to revisit these with each grade level and also offer other options during recess in May.
We continue to build a strong sense of community within our classes, all classrooms are instructing using 2nd Steps and utilizing morning meetings within the first segment of the day. All classrooms also have students working on iReady, this is done during targetted learning time, although some students receive specific instruction from classroom teachers, teaching assistants, resource teachers, and our specialists--all students are encouraged to complete 45 minutes in both literacy and mathematics.
Below are students that were identified by their classroom teachers for doing an excellent job on iReady. We will honor two students a week throughout the year. There aren't specific requirements, some may be recognized due to the percentage of lessons completed, or the number of minutes they worked on iReady, others may be recognized for improvement and growth.
