Our Last Week Of Trimester 2!

Dear Anna Yates Families,

After an amazing spirt week and our weeklong break, we are glad to have everyone back this week to complete our last week of the second trimester! The trimester will end March 3rd and we will send report cards home the following week, on March 10th.

We will be sharing your child's progress using our standards based report card and for a small cohort of students, we will reach out to you to schedule a second parent-teacher conference (March 15 and 22) in an effort to continue to communicate and collaborate on how to move your child's learning forward.

We also send home the results of the iReady Benchmark 2 so that you are able to track their growth on this schoolwide assessment.

Thank you and I look forward in continuing to collaborate for our final trimester of this school year!

Intent to Return Form

As we prepare for the upcoming school year, we are asking each family to share at this time if they intend to return next school year. A paper form will go home; please complete and return no later than March 10th.

The three classrooms with the highest return percentages will receive a classroom reward the following week on March 14th and the class that has all forms returned first will all receive a free book from the next book fair so thank you in advance for your support!
