Message From the Principal
Dear Sullivan Families,
We had a busy four-day week at Sullivan! Our students participated in the bus evacuation and fire safety drills, and completed beginning-of year testing. We are looking forward to getting back to our regular routine with a 5-day week!
Our new Ready Math program includes an iReady computerized component that provides individualized practice based on students' skill levels. The students took a math diagnostic test this week to allow the system to develop a learning path for each student. The iReady component will be integrated into classroom math instruction several times per week. Students also took the FAST (Formative Assessment System for Teachers) math and reading tests. The results of these adaptive tests allow teachers to provide targeted instruction for all students, as well as to monitor progress throughout the year. Students will take the tests in winter and spring as well.
We really are a community of readers at Sullivan. Great job to all students who participated in our 2019 Scholastic Read-a-Palooza Summer Reading Challenge! The challenge officially ended today. As a school, we read 83,714 minutes. Way to go, Panthers!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Anne Sullivan School
