Week of October 26

Cline's Corner

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fantastic Fall Break sharpening your saw and is reenergized and ready to go! We have a busy, but fun week this week with Red Ribbon Week, Fire Safety, and Spooky Reading and Math night. Our students will be excited to participate in all of these activities so let's make sure we are keeping students engaged in meaningful learning. Have a great week!

On-Demand Personal Narrative Assessment

Most grades have just finished the first narrative writing unit. Please have students complete the on-demand for narrative writing this week. Please click on this link and access the prompt (it is the same as the pre-assessment) and the scoring form. Please make sure that you use this link. It will take you to the summative scoring forms. Be careful not to mix your pre-assessment data with the summative data. I am sure you will be excited to see the growth your students have made. Please let Donna know if you would like support in scoring the assessments.
