Ms. Kang's Update


Instructional Coach

My name is Michelle Kang and I am the instructional coach and #TechLeader Innovator at Field Elementary School.

Dear Field Families...

January 8th

Happy New Year! Welcome back into 2021!

Please read below for a this week's updates.

Trimester 2 Diagnostic

The second diagnostic window for 1st to 5th grade students will begin on January 19th. Over the next week, teachers will share with you their assessment window/schedule.

As a reminder, these diagnostic assessments are important because it tells the teachers what the students already know and what they need to learn. In addition, it will help you understand your child's strengths and areas for growth, but this is only possible when the data is accurate.

Therefore, teachers will be administering these assessments synchronously with the students during class time. Parents, we ask that you do not help your child with understanding or answering the questions. Your child will benefit from your support and encouragement to ensure the information received accurately reflects what they know and still need to learn.

What can you do?

  1. Watch the video below.
  2. Take the parent pledge.
  3. Encourage your child to do their best! [As a classroom teacher, I used to show the picture above and give them a pep talk before assessments. A students once told me that was one of her favorite parts of my class and it helped relieve anxiety!]
