Shady Creek Outdoor School Trip for 5th Graders

Shady Creek Science Camp is a four-day overnight trip in which 5th grade students from our school, Carlin C. Coppin, and Sheridan participate in a valuable outdoor educational experience. The trip will take place Tuesday, October 30th through Friday, November 2nd, 2018. This is normally a $250 per student trip, but, thanks to a county FitQuest grant, our students will be able to go for free! Information packets went home this week in English and Spanish. Please return the forms as soon as possible. Even if you don't plan to have your student attend, we need you to return the "Parent Survey Letter" so we can have an accurate count of who will be going the trip. Click here to visit the Shady Creek website to find parent forms.

Clubs for 4th & 5th Graders

It's a great time to be an upperclassman! We are getting ready to start some clubs specifically for our 4th & 5th grade students:

1) Band - For FSS students in 4th and 5th grade. Practices will take place Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:00-4:15 PM in rm. 1. Email Mr. Medina at amedina@wpusd.org if you have any questions.

2) Technology/Media Club - Is your 4th and 5th grade student a media master with a future in technology? If so, or even if they are a beginner, this club is for them. Click here to see the info and application. The first meeting is this Friday from 2:50-4:00 in rm. 15.

i-Ready Central

i-Ready is an interactive online learning program designed to provide individualized instruction based on each child’s unique needs. i-Ready begins with a diagnostic assessment that takes place 3-4 times a year. Based on that diagnostic assessment, students are placed at their appropriate learning level for work on their individual online lessons. Staff will use the information from the diagnostic and the online lessons to determine what their students know and where they might need support. For this reason, it is VERY IMPORTANT that parents not help their children answer the questions. It is fine to encourage them to stay focused and read the questions carefully, but that is all. Teachers will be alerted by the program if kids are struggling. If you have more questions about i-Ready, please visit the "i-Ready Family Center" by clicking here.
