Warren staff,


I hope you all are well. I am so appreciative of your hard work and willingness to collaborate with Lona. Lona and I were able to debrief regarding what I missed. Below are my notes from Lona and I’s conversation. We can go over the following in more detail during tomorrow’s faculty meeting. Shoot me an email if there is something I have missed.

Summative Assessment and Formative Assessment

Justine and Ashley are working hard to create formative assessments for grades K-5. This will be for teachers to use the following week (April 27th) and will cover the standards for this coming week (April 20th). These formative assessments will pull questions from the bigger unit assessments and will align with identified I can statements for each week.


The focus: Constructive and meaningful feedback-- What are the formative assessments telling us?


Tech Requests

· Need to be submitted to Wendy prior to Wednesday this week

Read to Ride Program- Share with your families!

Hello Superintendent Ream and area principals and staff,

Thank you again for your partnership of our Read to Ride program. I have received a number of phone calls and emails from parents and students so we know people are reading. We have extended the Read to Ride program through May 22 for each of the elementary students. Just a reminder, we will be awarding six bikes per school (one for each grade). Each child will receive one entry for each 30 minutes they read (or are read to). The bikes are beautiful bikes from Big Sky Cycling and are either Giant or Liv bikes.

Full details and forms can be found on each of our websites. I have included a link below. Please let me know if you have any questions. If you are unsure if your students have received the information (it started the same day as the "school from home" started and I know each of you were busy) please send information to the students. We want everyone to be able to participate.
