Happy New Year! The first part of the 2019-2020 school year has gone by quickly! We are well into the second trimester and approaching the mid-year benchmarking period. During this time, students will complete testing in math, reading and writing to assess their progress from the beginning of the year. AimsWeb Plus will continue to be used to assess students in grades K-3, while STAR will be used to monitor the progress of our grades 4 and 5 students. In addition, students in grades 2 and 3 have ongoing assessment in reading using the Independent Reading Level Assessment, as part of our American Reading Company curriculum. As we know, this is one way teachers assess student progress over the course of the year. Results of this testing will be communicated with parents in a timely manner.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank our Clayville families for your generosity during the holiday season. Thanks to many of you, our annual Food Drive and Give-a-Gift Drive was a success and helped support local families in need. I am truly thankful for a school community that enthusiastically contributes so much to our school. We are all filled with Wildcat Pride!
