Report Cards

I hope your weekend was not all report cards. We will print report cards Monday to send home …You will get an emailed version of your report cards to preview. If they look fine please let Kristina know so that your cards can be printed to send home. Please allow time for this.

Conferences

Conferences will be Wednesday and Thursday. Once you have finalized your schedule for conferences, please leave a copy with the office. Many parents call and need to confirm their conference time. Conferences are a great opportunity to connect with families and share with them what they can do to help with educating their child. Please take advantage of this time to connect with parents/guardians. ParentVue letters are available. If you are interested see Kristina for yours. Dinner will be provided on Wednesday with left overs on Thursday. On the menu is soup, salad and bread with dessert....

Progress Monitoring

Progress Monitoring folders are in your mailbox for students we will be progress monitoring at this time. In each folder is a Student Intervention and Data Review form. Please record progress monitoring on this form. If you have questions see me.

STAR

As part of our attempt to better monitor student performance as a Focus School we will be STAR testing again in November. We are looking at testing every 8 weeks. We are not able to add another Test Window with Star but we can still test and record student progress. Some time next week (Week of November 17th) while you are in the computer lab please use your computer time to STAR test all student in Reading and Math.
