Please take a moment to review the following information:
Early Release & Friday dress down: Wednesday is an ER at 11:30. Please make sure your student knows how they are getting home. In addition, Friday is a $1.00. If your student wishes to participate, be sure to send them with a donation.
Galileo: Galileo Benchmark 3 testing will begin NEXT Monday, February 25th and continue through Thursday, February 28th. We are always preparing for the benchmarks which ultimately help us on the state assessment. This week, we will be adding in more test talks that should make it home once we finish them. All paperwork that we complete in class is asked to be taken home.
Progress Reports: These were sent home on Tuesday and only a handful have been signed and returned. I ask for a signature on their Progress Report to ensure communication has been made about academics. Please let me know if you need another copy of your students progress report.
Classroom Effort: Throughout the year, as a class, we have had several discussions on putting in 100% effort in on every assignment or assessment given in the classroom. Ultimately, their report cards should reflect their knowledge of the 4th grade standards but if the effort is not there, you are not seeing what they actually know. We have 6 weeks until AZMerit,which is the assessment that tells us exactly what we have learned for an entire school year.
In an effort to continue our home-school partnership, I encourage you to ask your student daily:
- Are you paying attention in class?
- Did you put 100% effort on any quiz/test/assignment?
- Did you participate in class discussions?
- Did you ask questions if you didn’t understand something?
- Did you keep your classroom conversation for appropriate times throughout the day?
As always, thank you for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
