Friday Focus!

March 7, 2014

2014 IditaREAD

It truly is amazing what a group of people can do when they collaborate and have a central focus. The school...from one end of the building to the other...has the same focus the 2014 IditaREAD. Your creative juices are overflowing and it is only the first week. Great job everyone!

Family Literacy Center

For our first Parent and Child Together event we had over forty participants who enjoyed several activities together which could easily be duplicated at home.


Watch for upcoming flyers advertising the ADD workshop and the Parent and Child Together event for 3rd and 4th grade students. Staff are also welcome to attend.

Michigan Interim Assessment Program

Michigan Department of Education is in the process of developing an Interim Assessment Program. This will be on-line pre/post assessments, and when operational, may be used as one measure of student growth.


The ELA and mathematics interim assessments are aligned to the Common Core State Standards.


We will be participating in the K-2 Spring 2014 Pilot for Language Arts and Math.


Testing window will take place between March 24-May 23.


Participation in this State of Michigan authorized pilot test opportunity counts toward satisfying district participation requirement #4 of the 22i Technology Readiness Infrastructure Grant (TRIG).


More info will be shared as soon as I hear more from Tracy B. or Central Office.
