    Congratulations to all of the parents, teachers, staff, and students for getting through this first week together.  I will always ask that the lines of communication remain open so that we may help educate and understand the needs of our students.  There were many reports of enthusiatic learners in front of our teachers.  


    As move into the 2nd week of school both the Mathematics and English departments will be administering the At Home Diagnostic I-Ready Assessments to our students in 7th and 8th grade.  8th grade accelerated students will not be taking the i-ready diagnostic for mathematics.

    Please take a moment for you and your child to watch the following videos from I-Ready about taking diagnostics in the virtual setting.  (I think some teachers may have assigned them as "parent" homework) These experiences are made to gauge the level of practice each individual student requires.  They will only be used to drive instructional focus.

    Every week will bring new successes and challenges.   It is my pleasure to be here to assist you in any way possible.

    Have a great day and make it a great day for someone else !!!
