Good Afternoon,

Today students enjoyed DEAR (Drop Everything and Read)! Thanks to our third graders proposal we will have school wide time to spread out with pillows, in PJ's, and a good book once a month. Next week we launch Read Across America with many fun activities planned by our librarian Mrs. McHugh.

At today's assembly we celebrated being acknowledged by Lexia Core 5 as one of the highest performing schools in terms of minute usage. We will hang our special banner in our hallway! Each week classes will have the chance to earn the special Lexia cape to hang in their classroom! Keep practicing at home:)

Being on Time for School:
Recently, the number of students arriving tardy has increased. Mornings are not always easy especially with the cold and snow! Thank you for prepping lunches, outfits, and backpacks the night before to help with being timely. This helps set the tone for the day. Please reach out if we can support with anything.

Masks: Thank you for ensuring your child has a mask for the bus. Please pack extra masks just in case!

MAP Reports & F&P (Reading Levels): Keep an eye out for your child's reports to show you how he/she has progressed since August. Want to learn more about how to understand your child's MAP report? View THIS video.
