ELAR Tests, Progress Reports

and Corrections....OH MY!!!

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. ----------- Frederick Douglass

Progress Reports will be sent home this week in the Thursday folder. Please sign and return to school the next day.
Please know that the grades that are on the progress reports include the ELAR (Reading and Writing) Tests, however, not all students have finished with corrections. We will complete corrections on the tests in the next week. If your child made a 70 or below they will the opportunity to correct ALL missed questions for a higher grade that will not exceed a 70 . Please see Test Correction Guidelines below.

Test Correction Guidelines

In the event that your child does not score a 70 or above on the assessments they will have the opportunity to correct the problems he or she missed to raise their test score. The following is from the TRES "Redo policy".

Remember....

There is a big jump from 2nd grade to 3rd grade. Our first 2 tests are behind us and I believe that now everyone is fully aware of the effort that will need to be given in order to be successful in 3rd grade.
If you or your child have any questions please do not hesitate to speak with me. I am here to help your child be successful and enjoy their 3rd grade experience.

If the dates won't work with your schedule and you would still like to me with me please let me know and we will find a time and date that will work for the both of us.

Spelling Words / Test

Please remember to have your child practice their spelling words so they can be ready for the spelling test each Friday.

Reading Log

Remember, studies show that students who read for at least 20 minuets each night are exposed to a high number of words each year and in turn, they are more successful when faced with tests.

Please log your child's reading in their agenda each night.
