Update from THIS I.F.

Hope fills holes of frustration in my heart By: E. Cleaver

Benchmark Week

As you know--it is our first Benchmark week of the school year. Things are a bit different this year because EVERYONE has Benchmarks to give. Our K-2 students will do performance tasks and 3-5 will be EOG format.

Mrs. Mays will be sending out a modified schedule for assistants next week. We want to make sure we are providing modifications for our students. If there is a problem with the schedule--please let Mrs. Mays or myself know and we will do our best to make accommodations. Thank you in advance for your flexibility!
