4th Grade Newsletter // January 9-13, 2017

From the Desk of Mrs. Eske:

Dear Fourth Grade Families,

iREADY (Middle-of-the-Year) Testing BEGINS tomorrow!!!!

Students will take their iReady math test tomorrow. We will begin testing at 9AM. We will take our iReady test in reading on Tuesday at 9AM. Thank you for helping me to provide the best testing environment possible for all students, by ensuring that your child is on time, with Chromebooks fully charged. Also, please encourage your child to do their very best on these two assessments!! These tests are extremely important, as they show us how much growth your child has made since the beginning of they year, and where they need to be by the end of the year, for a successful transition to fifth grade.

2nd Quarter grade cards were sent home this past Friday. Please keep the grade card and sign/return the envelope by Monday, Jan. 9th. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me by email at or 417-523-3929.

Thank you and have a great week!


Mrs. Eske
