Reminders & Important Info

  • This past week students took Mock Milestones assessments. We are using this data to create our March Focus lessons. During this time students will rotate with flexed groups of kids (rather than with their homerooms) and review information from throughout the school year while continuing to perfect their written responses. During this time we encourage you to help them review concepts at home, and build their confidence. They are more than prepared, and we cannot wait to see them shine over the next few weeks!

  • Reviewing our daily morning work each evening and using IXL and Frontrow for extra practice on skills that your child has not quite mastered are all GREAT ways to help your child prepare for upcoming testing! Students are working hard at school and home to practice what they have learned and I know they will keep it up these last few weeks and end the year with a bang! J

Don't forget about March Math Attack! We are down to our final 2 weeks. Hope to see you there! :)

The tutoring schedule is as follows:

March 23 & 26 - Geometry

March 30 & April 2 - Measurement



Comparing and contrasting text. Using evidence based terms in responses.


Writing process: planning, drafting, and revisions. Responding to persuasive prompts.

Things to Study

Students should be studying their spelling words and reviewing class notes & IXL throughout the week to help review what was taught in class. It is important to practice skills taught in class, especially in math, in order to fully master the content

Ideas for ways to study: study notes from class, review math and reading journals, IXL, frontrow, flipped videos and assignments on Edmodo, and view any games or activities in the “extra practice” folder on Edmodo.
