February 2017

Reminder:  Valentine's Dance is tomorrow from 6-8.  We hope to see you there!!!!

Time is flying by as the halfway point of the year has passed.  We have completed DRAs (Developmental Reading Assessments).  At this point in the year, students should be reading on an instructional level of 34.  Please check your child’s Monday folder to find their current reading level. A key part in your child’s reading success, is to practice.  Students should be reading every night for at least 20 minutes!
We are beginning preparation for the Georgia Milestones by practicing test taking strategies. It is important for parents to support their child by encouraging them to do their best. We do not want to add any pressure to students about testing.  We simply want to encourage them to do their best.
We are proud of our students’ accomplishments so far this year!  Looking forward to see what the rest of year brings for our students!
 As always, please feel free to contact your child’s homeroom teacher with any questions or concerns.
