OPINION ESSAY SCORES

With all the business from the Georgia Milestones and Exhibition, your child may not have gotten the chance to review his/her score on the last opinion essay. Please remind your child to go onto Google Classroom to review comments and constructive feedback. The score is also posted on Google Classroom. Let me know if you have any questions.

ONLINE ASSESSMENT SCORES

Last week students took the reading test and social studies quiz via Google Forms. Students received theirs scores back immediately after submitting the forms. They also received feedback on which questions they missed. These assignments will not come home in the communication folder. If you have specific questions or would like me to print a copy of your child's assessment, please email me and I'll be happy to do so.

REPORT CARDS

Report cards will be sent home this Friday, which happens to be the last day of school.
