From Mrs. Lay

The 2nd six weeks will begin on September 24th. In the past few weeks students have taken district assessments and MAP assessments. These assessment tools are instrumental in helping teachers know where students are academically. We will now begin more intensive intervention for students that need intervention. Beginning this six weeks we are excited to announce a change to our Intervention/Enrichment hour for students as well as the addition of our After School Program for 3rd-5th grade students that need targeted intervention in Reading and Math. Make sure to check out our new shared Whiteside parent calendar link below to keep up with everything happening at Whiteside. There are many fun events happening this month! GOALS conferences will occur on October 2nd and 10th, please contact your child's homeroom teacher if you need to schedule a conference. Please contact us 219-7300 if you have any questions.
