WMS Friday Forecast
September 10, 2021
Attention All Parents/Guardians:
Attention All Parents/Guardians:
The I-Ready Fall Diagnostic Reports for both Math and Reading are being sent home with your child on Friday, September 10, 2021, so be on the lookout! You will find the following information included with the two diagnostic reports:
A letter from Mr. Dave Chiszar, who is the Director of Assessment and Accountability, that explains the I-Ready diagnostic report and what is being included in the documents mailed home.
A “ How Do I Read the Diagnostic Reports” document that will support you as you look at the data.
As students have now completed this initial diagnostic for the year, their personalized pathway has been identified and set for each student to begin weekly lessons in math and reading. Last week in tutorial, your child began to work on lessons in their personalized pathways. The goal for each student is to pass one lesson in both reading and math each week. If your child is finding the lessons too easy, please feel free to contact your child’s language arts or math teacher to let them know. This may be an indication that the personalized pathway level identified from the diagnostic was set to low. We can rectify this by setting an appropriate level in the pathway. Should you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s counselor. Please click here to access the counselor information.
Is Your Child Involved?
Keep an eye on future issues of the Friday Forecast for upcoming opportunities to participate in activities. Please encourage your child to find ways to be involved at school.
Enjoy your weekend!

Support for Your Child if they are Quarantined:
If your child is quarantined due to Covid, our teachers will send work to your child and work with you and your child as we always have when a child is out of school. We want to recognize that quarantine offers some unique challenges for our students.
We will be offering instructional support through a certified teacher during quarantine. Ann Rose, a recently retired D303 teacher, will be available to support our quarantine students through Zoom. When a child begins quarantine, we will email both the child and the parent with information on how to access Mrs. Rose's Zoom for support. We encourage our quarantined students to access this instructional support!

Debbie Reber, NY Times bestselling authorZoom Webinar, 6:30 pm; Recording to be posted
School always presents certain challenges for students who learn and think differently (kids with ADHD, dyslexia, giftedness, autism, anxiety, or other neuro-differences).
