Jump Rope for Heart
ISTEP+ and IREAD3 Update
Although this test is very important, it is only one test. Our goal is for the students to do their "Personal Best." That is all we can expect. Please reinforce "Personal Best" at home. We will be giving the students additional "Personal Best" recess breaks each day if they truly work hard, stay on task, utilize the time, and do their very best.
IREAD3 Exemptions: Although it is true that 3rd grade students must pass IREAD3 to move on to 4th grade, understand that there is a second chance to pass it online this summer. Also, there are three exemptions outlined by the state:
1) Child has an IEP and committee decides it is best to move them on to 4th grade.
2) Child has already been retained twice.
3) Child speaks English as a Second Language (ESL).
