WOW! We are into our 8th week of school. Truly, this year is flying by at breakneck speed.
We finished our MEAP testing (grades 3-5) last week and all of our students worked exceptionally hard to do their best on these tests. The tests were harder and this required more intense focus for our students. We are relieved to have these behind us. An upcoming post (later this week), will provide information about the new cut scores for the MEAP for the coming year. Not only are the tests harder, they are also going to be scored harder. As always, we are working at a rapid pace to keep up with the state requirements and making changes to our curriculum to support our learners.
The week ahead looks calm and quiet from the school snapshot end….but, as always, I encourage you to check your child’s class blog for special events or announcements at the classroom level.
The big excitement this week will be the district wide PE sponsored Turkey Trot! This will happen on Tuesday and it will be held at the Baldwin Stadium. I will be there with my camera and my Turkey Trot shirt. Let’s hope for nice weather.
Halloween celebrations will be happening this coming Thursday through next Monday. Because there are multiple classrooms celebrating on different days, you will need to visit class blogs for dates/times.
Have a great week!
