Welcome Back
We had a wonderful first week back! 

Assessment Days - August 21st & 22nd 
We are excited to get to know your child’s strengths and needs during his/her assessment hour on either August 21st or 22.nd We will be administering reading and math assessments during your child’s assigned time. This data allows teachers to adjust instruction to meet your child’s needs.  Please review the checklist below for an overview of the day. 

___ Review the day & hour you scheduled your child’s assessment.

___ In order to complete all of the assessments it is imperative that you arrive 15 minutes 
prior to your assigned hour.

___ Please walk your child toward the gym (the front door will be open).

___ An adult will escort your child to the library where he/she will check in.  An adult
       will then take your child to his/her classroom to begin testing.

____If you would like to wait for your child at school, you are welcome to do so at
        his/her grade level table in the gym.  You are also welcome to leave the building and
        return to the gym at the end of the testing hour.

___ Teachers will walk your child to his/her grade level table in the gym at the end
       of the hour testing session.

___ Please take your child to get his/her school picture at the back of the gym.  Due
       to time constraints pictures may not be taken prior to the assessment hour.
