This week during conferences, you may be hearing about our new program called i-Ready. Earlier this school year, students finished a beginning of the year assessment. Teachers have looked over the data, and we have received professional development on how to better use that data to help students make growth during the school year.
i-Ready will deliver engaging lessons and quick assessments through the program that are individualized to the needs of your child. If you would like your child to log in at home, you can access the login page by clicking the button below. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you need their login information. We encourage students to complete 30 minutes each week in each subject (Reading and Math) to meet their growth goal this year. Students will be working on their i-Ready lessons in class, as well.
Free/Reduced Price School Meal Benefits
Reminder to all Families: Thursday, September 7th, 2023 is the deadline for the carryover benefits for all free and reduced price lunch recipients from the 2022-2023 school year. All families need to have a completed application for this school year in order to continue with their benefits.
If you did not already receive a letter from the school with a determination decision, please contact the office ASAP to see if a new application needs to be completed. If your household currently receives SNAP benefits, you should be directly certified, and no application is required.
If you have any questions, please contact the office, 520-682-3331.
