North Side News

Week of August 12th - 16th, 2019

So much to do........JUST BREATHE, it will get done!

Continuing to practice procedures within the building and on the playground are still very important! We are in the process of IREADY diagnostic testing and the NWEA window opens later this week. All new students will also need Raz-Kids benchmarked and all reading level data for returning students must be placed on your new 2019-2020 Raz spreadsheet. To top it off, it is definitely time to start digging into the curriculum.........


It will all fall into place, just breathe and create a schedule for yourself to accomplish everything you need to do.


I plan to review or teach those of you who need the support, how to assign the NWEA benchmark assessments to your students next Monday morning at collaboration. As in the past, you will create your own NWEA schedule for testing and share it with me. The window is open until August 30th, you have time!


The Raz spreadsheet and information is coming in e-mail today. For those of you new to North Side, I will be in to visit you at one of your collaboration times to go over this information in more detail.


Another event coming is "Picture Day." This year, you will sing up for a time. I will be sending a Google document today for sing-up. Please sign-up by Wednesday at 3 p.m.
