Brittany's Corner

Guys, I am so impressed with y'all. Coming back after a break can be tough, but, nope, not for y'all. You all hit the ground running and dug deep into planning for the upcoming weeks. Keep it up!

Great job this week on the new morning procedures. I have noticed the hallways are less chaotic and more orderly. I'm interested to hear your feedback if you have any.

Decemeber Staff Member of the Month

MOY Testing

IMPORTANT - It has been brought to my attention that "admin" was written on the board in the computer lab. The "admin" password should ONLY be entered on each student's computer by the TEACHER when taking a STAR test. The students should not know or be using the admin password.

January 4-15

STAR Math, K-12

January 18-29

Collaborative Conferences, K-12 math - Hilda and I will get a specific date to you.

January 18-29

January 18-29

STAR Reading in English

Collaborative Conferences, K-8 reading

*Bilingual students who are newcomers (3 years of less in US schools) or significantly below grade level in reading (Tier 3 in English) will also need to be tested in Spanish with the WRAP.

Someone has asked if our bilingual students are to take both ISIP and the STAR Early Literacy assessment. I do not know the answer YET, but I will find out and let you know.

As always, you can allow your students to take their MOY screener during their computer time with Mrs. Dotson OR you can sign up to take your class at another time. Please see Mrs. Dotson or Ms. Venegas for open computer times.


I know we made a big change in how we assess spelling this year and I stumbled upon the article below. In my opinion, it's interesting and worth reading.

Jeff's Corner

I always enjoy it as we get close to the types of academic competitions in which our children participate. Whether it's Reflections, Spelling Bee, Battle of the Books, Destination Imagination, or others, it takes teacher and parent support. Thanks for your ownership and encouragement of these endeavors!

With the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday approaching, look for those teachable moments about an individual whose contributions and sacrifices have benefited us all.
