Better Together

Dear Wiggin Street Families,

As we continue the Math-a-thon rewards this week, please know that we are truly appreciative of the support from our students' families and the community. Our students benefit so much from all of you!

Our teachers are learning more about the Science of Reading and Dyslexia this morning as well as having conversations with other same grade level teachers in the district this afternoon. We do not have school Monday for President's Day, so we hope your children are enjoying a nice. long weekend!

Best wishes,

Christy Grandstaff

Valentine's Day Party Fun!

Grades 3-5 Ohio State Testing Dates

Please keep these dates in mind when scheduling appointments for April. Make-up testing takes some of our educators away from intervention instruction, so we like to limit it as much as possible.

3rd-5th Grade ELA: April 12-13

3rd-5th Grade Math: April 18-19

5th Grade Science: April 25-26

This site for students and families has lots of great information about the state test and 3rd grade Reading Guarantee. It also has a practice test that can be found in the image at the top of the page.
