I hope you had a great opportunity to connect with parents and share their child’s progress to date. Hopefully this week you are able to connect with those that didn't show, perhaps by phone. Please turn in your conference signature form to Kristina. Thank You for all the efforts to make Rankin's walls look great with your student created work on display, I always enjoy when the hallways are colorfully decorated with writing! I do stop and read things on them.


If you are considering any students for retention please send me an email with their name(s) or write them on a post-it note. As I mentioned at the Late Start meeting, I will need to get student retention information over to the administration building soon so I would like to have this information gathered this week so I have it when it is requested.

STAR Testing & Quarterly Testing

This week marks the opening of the STAR testing window. 1st through 5th grade can use their computer lab time to test. It can be any time within the testing window of March 9th through April 2nd. I would suggest the week of the 16th for testing. We will complete Kindergarten testing on Wednesday March 18th. Remember you have math quarterly assessments and that window is the 23rd through the 2nd. If you did not send me a time please do so or I will be assigning you a time.

CAHS Marching Band March through

The HS Band will be conducting a “marchthrough” on Friday at approximately 10:25. They are traveling to all the buildings so this is an approximate time….The office will “announce” when they get here and you are welcome to have your students line the hallway outside your classroom to watch them march through. They will come in the east end hallway doors (by 5th grade classrooms) and travel down the hallway to the gymnasium and then circle around the gym and make a return trip back down the hallway. Last year they stopped and played a song in the gymnasium for the students in the gym. Rooms 10, 11 and 12 are welcome to line up in front of the gym or in the gymnasium as they will not travel past the gym. I’m a band mom so, of course, I love the loud marching band as they march through; however, the students also love them and it’s nice to see former Rankin students!
