Weekly Update 2/1/16 through 2/5/16
That's what Ixonia School is filled with....opportunities to belong, to achieve, to grow, to learn, to celebrate. So even on some of our challenging days, it's so important to remember that we come together everyday to provide each child the opportunity to have a school community that cares for who they are and what they need -- at whatever level that might be. It's an incredible opportunity we share and I am grateful.
Have a great week!
Staff Meeting Agenda
- SWIS data updates 7:30-7:45
- Book study 7:45-8:15
Wisconsin Forward Exam - Grades 3-4 only
Here's what Ixonia staff need to know:
- ELA & Math tested in grades 3 & 4
- Social studies & science in grade 4
- Testing window = March 28-May 20 (BLT will decide the testing window and inform by end of February)
- May 9 starts the spring MAP window, so we will want to space these exam enough apart.
- All computer based, so we will need work out a sign-up for the lab
After a schedule has been determined, I will send communication about proctor training & practice tests. Stay tuned....
Ixonia will continue the tradition of a TALENT SHOW. I will be looking for an advisor to plan and coordinate this event, which will be compensated like a club advisor. Anyone interested? Amy Ciesielski's long-term sub (who starts in March) said she would be willing to help out, but my first choice would be to have someone who can continue this into future years.
Though we have our set conference nights, I understand that you are all trying to accommodate parents' schedules. If you end up scheduling a few conferences outside of the conference dates, please see me if you'd like to leave an hour early from the February conference night.
Ordering classroom books
If you feel like your classroom library does not have enough options for students' of all interests and levels, or you need sets for book clubs, please see me and we can come up with a plan for ordering what you need.
