Happy New Year!
I pray that you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. May this new year be filled with health, happiness and prosperity!
This month, our scholars in K-5 will be completing their second round of iReady and Acadience Reading and Math assessments. K-5 teachers will also administer Running Records to determine how scholars have progressed in reading accuracy, fluency and comprehension. Students in grades 3-5 will take a Mock ELA and Math State exam.
Our Academic After School program for grades 3-5 will begin on Tuesday January 17th and run through March. Saturday School will begin on 1/21 and also run through March. Look out for notices which will go home within the next week. As our K-5 Intervention Program comes to an end, we are planning other after school program opportunities for our scholars in grades K-2. We will communicate with families about this as soon as possible.
As a reminder, the Division of Instructional and Information Technology (DIIT) will place an inventory team in our school building from 1/5-1/9 to verify device information (asset tag, serial number, model number, etc.) on all devices. Any devices given to students for remote learning (laptops, ipads, tablets) must be brought into the building during the inventory period so that the devices can be scanned and verified that they are in good functioning condition. Please reach out to Mrs. Gibson or your child's teacher if you have any questions about this.
Here are a few important reminders for the month of January:
1/11- Virtual Principal's Coffee Chat with Power My Learning- 9:00 am

Attendance Matters. As a reminder, unless your child is sick, he/she is expected to come to school every day and on time. Many of our scholars have shown great progress in the area of attendance! Thank you parents for scheduling your appointments, trips/vacations, etc when school is not in session so that your child(ren) will not miss out on instruction. Please reach out to your child's Attendance Success Mentor if you have any questions or concerns.
Shout out to the 117 scholars with 100% Attendance for the month of December! You did it! Please see attached the 100% Attendance List for December.
Be well and stay safe!
