Week 35: May 22nd-26th

Welcome to week 35.
NWEA testing will continue this week. Please make sure students are eating a healthy breakfast, either at home or at school. We should be done testing by Friday and will resume a normal schedule for week 36..
Please continue to encourage students to do their best and try their hardest. Even though there are mere weeks left of school, we are still learning and working towards the IEP goals.
If you have any questions, please let me know.

Week 34: May 15th – May 19th

Welcome to week 34.

We will begin our end of year NWEA testing on Tuesday, May 16th.

Please encourage students to eat a healthy breakfast, whether at home or at school.

Students will test with me for both reading and math, receiving all of the allowed accommodations/modifications as listed by their IEPs.

Weekly homework packets continue as normal. Weekend packets have ceased.

If you have any questions about testing or homework, please let me know.

Week 33: 5/8 – 5/12

Parents,

Hopefully you had a chance to review the May newsletter, which was posted last week, to see that this month we will complete our end of year NWEA testing. Students will begin testing with me on Tuesday, May 16th. Please be on the lookout for a letter about NWEA, it will come home this Friday.

Please make sure students are continuing to get their weekly homework packets completed and turned in by each Friday. They also need to work on their weekend homework packets and turn those in on Mondays. This is the same as it has been for the last 2 quarters.

It is important that the students are getting their work turned in as they go. Rushing to do last minute grades is in no one’s best interest.

As always, please email me with questions or concerns.

Week 32: 5/1 – 5/5

Parents,

As we you may or may not have heard, school is scheduled to run until the last day, Tuesday, June 20th.

Please make sure students are getting their weekly homework packets completed and turned in by each Friday. They also need to work on their weekend homework packets and turn those in on Mondays. This is the same as it has been for the last 13 weeks.

It is important that the students are getting their work turned in as they go. Rushing to do last minute grades is in no one’s best interest.

Week 31: April 24th-28th

Parents,

As we continue with our second week of the 4th quarter, there are still some students who have yet to turn in their spring break projects. Please make sure they get this turned in. It is two separate grades, one for the actual poster project and one for the presentation.

Also, please make sure students are getting their weekly homework packets completed and turned in by each Friday. They also need to work on their weekend homework packets and turn those in on Mondays. This is the same as it has been for the last 10 weeks.

It is important that the students are getting their work turned in as they go. We still do not know when the end of the school year will be. Rushing to do last minute grades is in no one’s best interest.

As always, please email me with questions or concerns.
