"Roadrunners in Action" Pictures of the Week!

Fall Harvest Festival - Friday, October 26th, 5:30pm - 7:00pm

Calling All Roadrunners!

The Fall Harvest Festival is coming to First Street School! Join us on the playground for an evening of fun, food, and of course, a costume contest. Children may purchase a $5 midway wristband for face painting, unlimited carnival games, one raffle ticket, and a snack. Click here to see the entire event flyer and click here to see the sponsorship/donation form if you'd like to support the event.

i-Ready Central

i-Ready is an interactive online learning program designed to provide individualized instruction based on each child’s unique needs. i-Ready begins with a diagnostic assessment that takes place 3-4 times a year. Based on that diagnostic assessment, students are placed at their appropriate learning level for work on their individual online lessons. Staff will use the information from the diagnostic and the online lessons to determine what their students know and where they might need support. For this reason, it is VERY IMPORTANT that parents not help their children answer the questions. It is fine to encourage them to stay focused and read the questions carefully, but that is all. Teachers will be alerted by the program if kids are struggling. If you have more questions about i-Ready, please visit the "i-Ready Family Center" by clicking here.

Shady Creek Outdoor School Trip for 5th Graders

Shady Creek Science Camp is a four-day overnight trip in which 5th grade students from our school, Carlin C. Coppin, and Sheridan participate in a valuable outdoor educational experience. The trip will take place Tuesday, October 30th through Friday, November 2nd, 2018. This is normally a $250 per student trip, but, thanks to a county FitQuest grant, our students will be able to go for free! Even if you don't plan to have your student attend, we need you to return the "Parent Survey Letter" linked below so we can have an accurate count of who will be going the trip. Click here to visit the Shady Creek website to find parent forms. We will be having a "Shady Creek Parent Info Night" on Wednesday, October 17th at 6:00 PM in the multipurpose room.
