I am still working very hard at finishing up a few different types of assessments with your child. As soon as we have all assessments completed, I will be sharing the data with you from our STAR Early Literacy test, the DRA (reading assessment), and our DIBELS test (phonemic awareness skills). Thanks for your patience!
