PARCC Testing

Next Tuesday students will begin PARCC testing. Testing will take place on Tuesday-Friday. We will begin testing at 8:30 and it will last about an hour each day. Please be sure that your child gets plenty of sleep and eats a good breakfast in order for them to remain focused during testing.


A lot of important forms and information came home in your child's Friday Folder. Inside you will find:

  • Math Unit 3 post-assessment
  • Math Unit 4 informational letter and your child's results on the pre-assessment
  • Reading post-assessment
  • Information regarding the Goodrich Read-a-Thon
  • Information regarding our upcoming field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry


This week in reading students received their 4th quarter AR goal. They spent time choosing books and setting goals that will help them be successful with their independent reading.

Next week we will begin exploring our forces and motion unit in reading. This will tie in nicely with many Genius Hour projects that students are working on.


Next week students will finish publishing their information book. We will then begin our next unit on writing Poetry.
