Thank you all for your kind words and well wishes. After an extra day of rest, I am feeling much better. Here are your updates for the week:
We will be NWEA testing on Tuesday, January 23rd and Wednesday, January 24th. The winter testing session marks an important time where we are able to see growth that your child has made and set goals/plans moving forward into the rest of 1st grade. Please make sure that your child is well rested and have plans of eating a well-balanced breakfast for the upcoming testing days.
As a school, we participate in the Six Flags Read to Succeed. Students are required to log in a minimum of 360 minutes and they will receive a free admission ticket to Six Flags at the end of the year. In lieu of our weekly reading logs, students received an empty reading log from 6 flags. All the information to log their minutes are the same, but they will not need to submit their reading log until February 15th. After February 15th, we will return back to our weekly reading logs.
