Dear Friends,


Enjoy the winter break with family and friends. Take a nap. Go out to eat. Sleep in. Read something. Watch a movie. And repeat! Speaking of movies... Whether you are a Star Wars fan or not, you will get a chuckle out of the video below.


There will be no MTSS on Monday or Tuesday due to multiple field trips and parties. Arrangements can be made for tier 2/3 students to have group time. Please work out details with MTSS aides.


MTSS groups WILL RESUME January 4th-8th. DIBELS testing will begin January 11th. The schedule can be accessed on this link. Winter data meetings will take place the last week of January. The data meeting schedule is HERE. Please complete STAR and DRA2 testing by January 26th. We should be ready to start new MTSS groups the first week of February. Please let me know what questions you have.
