Soaring over MDE

Week 20

Soaring over January!

I just blinked and it seems that January is over! I am in awe at how fast this year is going. While I know at times it seems that it is dragging. Continued KUDOS to our students for keeping up with their classwork & Zoom/Google Meets, our teachers who make learning exciting & engaging (even from a distance), and last but not least, to our families for balancing everything.

Coming in the next few weeks, the 2nd Trimester Assessments will be given to our students. 3rd - 5th GRADE ONLY: Please visit this LINK to get your child's SSID number that they will need for their assessments.

We want to remind you that helping your child do well on these tests, does not really help your child. We need each student to take their own assessment with no additional help. All Assessments will be administered during instructional time, your child's teacher will let you know the timing. They can be administered only between 8:00-3:00pm. They will be proctored by your child's teacher. I know (as a parent) this is going to be difficult to not help, especially when you see them struggling. However, getting valid data is important for appropriate intervention/support your student may need.

Photo Days have been rescheduled! The make-up date is Tuesday, March 9 & Wednesday March 10. A NEW sign-up sheet will be coming out next week. Please be on the look out for it. If you prepaid in December, this will be carried over to Spring pictures.

If you have any questions, as always, please not hesitate to contact me.
