The Cardinal Chirp

Felicity Elementary Newsletter for the week of 10/26/2020

Dear Cardinal Families,

It was great to welcome back so many students from online last week!

All students in grades K-3 (unless they just returned from online learning this past week) received a letter explaining that they are "on track" or "not on track" for reading based on the diagnostic test (Acadience) that was administered prior to September 30th. This test is a requirement for the "Third Grade Reading Guarantee." If your child is "not on track" at this time, we will be communicating our plan for providing additional reading support.

Just as a reminder, there is no school for students on October 30th or November 3rd.

As always, we appreciate your patience and support, especially during this time!

Have a great week!

Jennifer Keller, Principal


As our students and educators work through the unique challenges of the 2020-2021 school year, a number of questions arise, especially concerning state testing. At this time, these tests are required by federal and state law and are still required for this school year.

The Grade 3 English Language Arts test, a two-part assessment, will be administered to third grade students on October 27 & 28 at Felicity-Franklin Elementary. Please be sure that your child is present on testing days and arrives on time. Each 3rd grade class will have a free breakfast together prior to the start of test on testing days. Please be sure that your child gets adequate sleep the night before testing.

We really appreciate your help!
