We are beginning our end-of-Trimester testing this week. I am breaking up the tests into shorter sessions so the children don’t have to sit through one long testing period. These tests are very important and have a significant affect on grades.
Please encourage your child to try their best and do well. Please try not to have the children absent this week and do not schedule appointments during this week that could take them out of the school day. Thank you for your support.
i-READY & LEXIA
Our class has been using i-Ready and Lexia/Reading Plus in class for reading/math improvement. Students are assigned practices to do at school and at home. These programs offer practice, exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning path that empower students to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. Please have your child work on these programs for at least 20 minutes everyday. The logins are on our class page under “Class Links”
The more they practice, the better they will be in Math and Reading.
On Halloween Thursday, October 31, the students in Room B1 will have a little gathering to celebrate the coming of witches, goblins, and various ghoulish monsters on this special day for kids. Students are encouraged bring treats to share with the class, but it’s not required. There will not be any homework assigned for that day!
October 31 is crazy hair/socks day during our spirit week. Please remember that students are not allowed to wear costumes, masks, or face paint on Thursday.
