The Curriculum Corner...Winter Data Review

Click on the link below to review our most current data! The presentation includes F&P levels (by class & grade level), Math Benchmark results & Bulldog Buddy data. I am looking forward to highlighting our achievements for the Board of Education & the community during the January 28th Board Meeting. Our reading levels continue to show growth from last year & our Bulldog Buddy Tiers look fantastic! Thank you for all your efforts! As always, feel free to share any thoughts via social media, email or in the footer of The Buzz!

News & Notes

  • From our Literacy Coach: Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark assessments are scheduled for the end of February. Continuity of test procedures are critical for accurate placement and subsequent instruction. If anyone is interested in a quick brush up/review of how to administer the tests and or interpreting the results, please respond to this email and we will schedule a time. Thank you!
  • February is Black History Month...let's start thinking about activities & events! If there are events that we have held in the past, please let me know. I will be scheduling us for the African American Read-in towards the end of the month.
