Morton's Musings

Communication for the week of May 9-13

Testing Information

Most of the students are done with their MAPS and DIBELS testing. They have done very well and I am very proud of them. This week they are working two quick assessments called STAR reading and STAR math. If you would like a copy of any of these assessments, please let me know and I can send a copy home with your kiddo.

Please know, your kiddos are so important to me and I know they have grown beyond what a number on a test can put on them. They have grown as friends, as creative problem solvers and overall great people! I know they have great futures!
