Laurelton-Pardee News

January 8, 2015


Dear LP Families:

Welcome to 2016! It is sure to be a great year here at Laurelton-Pardee. I am excited to see what our students accomplish in the new year. They working so hard and showing improvement in all areas. Thank you to you for your support at home and to our teachers for their determination.

Our daily interventions are on hold until the beginning of February. We are taking these weeks in January to re-assess all students in both reading and math. This involves the use of two nationally normed standardized tests that help us chart our students' growth to same-age peers across the nation. The new assessment information will inform the next round of intervention groups for both math and reading.

Intervention Update

We will resume school on January 4 but take a break in our intervention shuffling. During the first few weeks back to school we will be collect data to inform our next round of interventions. Each student will retake a test in both reading and math in addition to quick screening tests. All of these tests are nationally normed, which gives us good information on measuring our students' growth. I am happy to talk to anyone who is interested in learning more about any of these assessments.
