Testing season is almost over!

The end is almost in sight! DIBELS should be done by this afternoon. Thank you to the testing team for powering through the almost 700 students to finish in just over 2 weeks. Thank you to teachers for being flexible with your small group routines during that same time. Please expect all testers back in groups no later than Tuesday afternoon. Most have returned today. SBA testing is also wrapping up with 4th and 5th grade finishing math testing soon. Next week will be make-ups in the lab as needed. Please double check with Linda before making plans to use the lab next week.

Many Mari Meetings

I attended just 3 of the 6 sessions of the work with Mari and the ILT day and I was exhausted from the work. Everyone engaged in intentional, intense work during these times and are hopefully feeling some good vibes about next year's work. Many of you were able to start (or at least get the wheels turning) planning for the beginning of the year during this time. I am super excited to keep that momentum going and looking forward to continuing the work next year. Please take time to reflect to on your session with Mari and jot some notes for next year while it is still fresh in your head.

Be on the look out for a reflection survey in your boxes and the end of the year BBQ flyer
