i-Ready Diagnostic Assessment Window

i-Ready End of Year Window (Reading and Math) - 3/21/2016 - 5/13/2016

K-2 teachers will check-out the Chromebook Cart for testing. The Chromebook cart is available to check-out every morning and Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons. I will start making the schedule as soon as you know when you want to schedule. Just send me an email if you know when you want to check-out the cart and I will get those times reserved for you. I will help you with testing your class whenever I am free. If you know you would like me to be in there to help let me know and we can make sure to schedule you a time when I can be there. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Nurse Rachel's Notes

HEALTH, HUNGER, and HYGIENE

SPS has many community partners such as Care to Learn, Kid's First, Ozark's Food Harvest, Help Give Hope, Jordan Valley, Tooth Truck, Give a Kid a Smile Day, Trudi's Kids and many others that work together to ensure that the health, hunger and hygiene needs of our students are met. If you have concerns in any of these areas, please contact Mr. Greiner or myself for us to make the appropriate referral. Thanks for always keeping our children's needs a top priority!! And if in doubt, just ask...we can always try.

ChromeBook Checkout

If ChromeBooks do not come back (are forgotten) or come back uncharged the student may not take the ChromeBook home for one week.

LEXIA Usage Goal Window of Fame

When your students reach their weekly Lexia reading goals please send them to the office with a buddy (for supervision). Students will get to sign their name to the window of the interior doors with an expo worker. (We will clean the windows weekly)

Upload Your Classroom Photos Please

I have shared a link via Google and in the link below. Any time you take photos of your class please upload them below when you have a chance. We will use all of these photos to upload and share on our hallway tvs, at Panther Pride Assemblies, on Portland's facebook, and for our year book.
