There are only three weeks until winter vacation and they are full of activities. Please check the calendar for specific dates.
This week all of the students will be completing the i-Ready monthly assessment to give the teachers more information on the progress of their students in reading and math. This is a short assessment that is untimed and taken on the computer. It serves as our monitoring tool for these two subjects. Students are working in the program at school and should be working in it at home as well. You will receive reports of progress later this week as well as mid-quarter reports.
The only field trip this week is to Florida Studio Theater (FST) for the Under 6 Write-a-Play program. Kindergarten through 5th grade students will be attending. Students attend three performances throughout the year then write a play in their English Language Arts classes. The plays are submitted to a committee who reviews them at FST then chooses several to be performed in May. Students from all over the world compete to have their play produced; maybe a play from SAA will be chosen this year.
Have a wonderful week!
