Vol 2.3: October Edition!
Mr. Sellenheim's Greeting
Academic Learning Updates
Fall PALS Testing
PALS assessments are not administered after grade 2 because the transition from grade 2 to grade 3 is when students move from "learning to read" to "reading to learn."
Hearing and Vision Screenings
We will be conducting the Hearing and Vision Screenings for Early Education, Kindergarten, and 1st grade students on Tuesday, October 16th from approximately 7:50AM to 11:30AM.
If you are able to come out and help us with the screenings, we would greatly appreciate it!
Contact Ms. Ozimek at 262-359-7405 to sign up.

Jackie Wideman, Social Worker
To support this program the success of this excellent program, the Kenosha County Health Center is offering students an incentive to return the permission forms to school. Any classrooms that turn in 75% or more of their flyers will earn an ice cream party.
Additionally, if a classroom reached 100% return rate, teachers will earn a $25 Amazon gift which will be used for classroom resources.
