Jane Ball Happenings

Week of January 4-8

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back ! Hope all of you had a wonderful holiday!

Thank you all for plant, cards, and food for my family when my mother in law passed away before the break. Your support during this difficult time was so touching.

Welcome back to April Snuffer who is on the road to recovery!

Ellen Wright will still be out through February. Please keep her in your thoughts and Prayers.

Testing Schedules

Benchmarks Jan. 4-14

Students who are labeled Tier 2 and Tier 3 need to have a benchmark. They should be recorded in the google docs by January 14. Students who are tier 1 need to have have their current running record level recorded.

Star 360 testing Jan. 19-29

ISTEP Part 1:

Feb. 29-March 11


Please make sure that your data is updated in google docs (this includes star 360, Grades and Benchmark (running records) ). This is helpful for file reviews for RTI. We will be doing file reviews after Star 360 testing.

Remember that if you have any current RTI concerns you should fill out the proper form. If a student is new and you feel they need immediate help please let me know directly.

Professional Development

Please remember I have shared the link for PD calendar. As additions and changes are made I will update this calendar. My hope is this will help you with planning and identify any needs that we see. Please let me know if I can improve on how this is communicated.

Jam and Jar updates

As of now we do not have funding to do Jam and Jar. We are still awaiting reallocations from the state for our Title 1 grant. I will keep you posted.
