Dear Parents

I am happy to announce that middle of the year NWEA testing was completed this week. Our students worked hard, showed stamina, and met their growth goals. Stop in any time to see the ALL STAR BULLETIN BOARD in the main hallway. This board acknowledges students for their growth in read, math, or both reading and math. Teachers and staff will continue to use the data from this assessment to plan and group students. Our goal is for every students to make it into the 60th percentile. Reports will be sent home Friday, January 25, 2019. Sorry for the delay in sending out the reports, we had a few students that needed make-ups.


Tomorrow there is no school for the staff or students of Warren Township. We will use this day to remember the great work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Below are free activities you can do with your family to remember his work. We will spend time this week learning more about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his contributions to society.


Sincerely,

Mrs. Johnson

A Note from the Dean

Dear Eastridge Families,

Last week, our CORE/ Community focus was identifying and navigating emotions. All classrooms spent time each day working with activities that will help students identify and name what they are feeling. As well, Mr. Phillips has been visiting classrooms teaching specific tools that students can use to cope with their emotions when needed. Next week, we will be focusing on how to handle feeling angry. Please ask your child about what he/she is learning about their emotions and emotional regulation at school. Below are some resources for parents and caregivers on ways you can continue to support your child’s emotional development.

Please remember that the first step to school success is making sure that your child attends school everyday and on time! We love to see each and everyone of their smiling faces everyday morning. Enjoy MLK Day, and we will see everyone Tuesday.


Have an amazing week!

Mrs. Noel Wilson
