Inspire Excellence in Education [February 15, 2016]

Celebrate Growth!

Our 5th grade teachers, students, interventionists have been working hard the past few weeks preparing for the Reading and Math Benchmark tests. Out of 91 students tested, 55 of them shown growth in their performance. Students have increased over 560 points in reading and 425 points in math collectively! Please take time to celebrate your students' growth in MAP data, benchmark data, or when they reach their personal goals. It's critical for us to recognize their effort and encourage them not to give up. We are their cheerleaders!
