ORE Monday Notes

Reading Growth is Strong at ORE!

This is the final week of our the Reading Assessment Middle of the Year Benchmark. Reports indicate that initially we are seeing very positive growth trend data for our school! We are absolutely overjoyed with this trend data and happy to report that from the initial reports we are seeing that K, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade are meeting their goals that were set at the beginning of the year and for the first time in our school's history of DIBELS assessments we are seeing GROWTH as a grade level in all K, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades! This is tremendous and our school is congratulated on this remarkable work! Celebrate and keep the momentum for the remainder of this school year! We can do this - we ARE doing this!!!!!!!!!!!
