TIGER TALK

Week of January 4-8, 2021

Big picture

Welcome Back

I hope you all had a safe, relaxing winter break. We look forward to welcoming all students and staff back to the building and in our virtual classrooms.


Students returning to the building for the first time will be escorted to the classroom by the Brock Staff. Unfortunately, we still cannot allow visitors into the building.


On Monday, January 11th, we will begin taking the middle of the year MAP test. We are excited to see the growth made by our students. Please be sure your child is ready to learn each day by being on time (in the classroom by 7:40) and having his/her Chromebook charged. Teachers will begin goal setting for the MAP test this week.


Report Cards for the 3rd six weeks will be available in Family Access on Thursday, January 7, 2021.
