AIR Assessment

As you are aware, 3rd grade is subject to the State of Ohio 3rd grade reading guarantee.

In order to move on to 4th grade in addition to meeting grade level standards, 3rd grade students must pass a reading assessment. The first AIR assessment will be given on Tuesday, December 1st. This will be a reading/language arts test. Example test items can be found at the following link.

Students can sign in as a guest and practice for the test. Our test will not be on-line this time. The students will take the paper/pencil version of the test, but the questions and format will be similar. 3rd grade students will have another chance to take and pass this test in the spring. Those dates will be forthcoming.

Lift-Off

If you sign your child up for Lift-Off, please write a note in their agenda each week so I know they have permission to go to Lift-Off. The school does not keep the permission slips that are sent in. The slips go to the church, so I do not have a record of who is signed up. Thank you for your help in this.

No School

There will be no school the week of November 23rd due to parent teacher conferences, teacher inservice, and Thanksgiving break. Parents and Students, have a happy Thanksgiving with your families. Students, enjoy your time off, but come back ready to focus and learn!
