Here's What's Happening @ Saddle Ridge:

Georgia Milestones Tests begin for Grades 3rd-8th on Monday. We will be testing throughout the next three weeks due to having to spread out the tests. We have a lot of field trips coming up as well. We need all students at school each and every day. School is still going on and we have more ground to cover. Please minimize early check outs and absences for these last few days. These last 25 days are going to go by in a flash, so hold on!😎

It is my hope that you work with your child at home each night on reading and math skills for all grade levels. We need our students to feel confident in these areas so that they can deepen their understanding in all areas. All students in grades 3-8 should know multiplication facts. All students should be able to read on their grade level. It takes all of us working together to help make your child successful in the classroom, home, and life. Thank you for your help with this matter. Set some family goals with your children that pertain to academics but also life. For example: Read one book per month as a family, spend time playing board games, exercise as a family, etc.

Ask your child what their goals are that they have gone over with their teachers.
