Mabry Minute for Week of 10/16/16
i-Ready Lab
We are excited to have another year with the i-Ready Diagnostic and Instructional program. The program provides students with an innovative diagnostic assessment and individualized instruction based on each student's unique needs.
I-Ready is a computer based program that has assigned online instruction to support your child's progress in mastering the identified skills in Math and Reading. This year we are inviting all students to join us for i-Ready Lab, 7:30-7:55, Monday- Friday starting on October 17th in the Media Center computer lab.

A Mabry teacher will monitor your child on i-Ready in the Media Center computer lab. This instructional intervention will allow time to make gains without interrupting the regular school day.
If you have any further questions, please contact your child's teacher.
