Happy Tuesday!

I was overjoyed and ecstatic to have your students in class this week!

New Information:

  • MAP TESTING: We will begin MAP testing next week. These students have been working so hard these past 75 days of them and I am so PROUD of them.
    • Reading: Thursday, 11/30 and Friday, 12/1 at 8:35am
    • Math: Wednesday, 12/6 and Thursday, 12/7 at 8:35am
      • This test is used to collect data on the students so that we can differentiate instruction. These scores grow with them at STCS and can help us see the growth that the student is making.
      • In 2nd grade, the test NO longer reads to them. This is a big change from kindergarten and first grade so please remind your student.
      • Please have them get a good night’s rest & eat a healthy breakfast as they will be starting with the test in the morning.
      • I will be reminding my students as well, but please remind them to TRY THEIR BEST! 😊
  • DECEMBER CONFERENCES: Sign up here for Q2 Parent Teacher Conferences.

This Week:

  • We:
    • talked about what we can see in the sky in English and read some great books about the nighttime sky.
