Welcome 2015-16 School year

Posted by on Jul 6, 2015 in News | 0 comments


Hello Families!

Every Fall, our teachers do a variety of assessments in order to know where to begin their instruction with students. One of the assessments that is administered is the Benchmark Reading Assessment. For this assessment, teachers meet with students individually to listen to them read and to have a comprehension conversation. Teachers use this information for setting up Guided Reading in their classrooms. The Benchmark Assessment is also given during the 3rd quarter.

Students received a letter in their spring report cards with the date and time that your child has been assigned for their Benchmark Assessment . The appointment will be with their teacher for next year, in their new classroom.     Thank you so much for your willingness to partner with us in getting this done so that instruction can start as soon as possible when school begins. This appointment time would also be a great time to bring in your child’s supplies for the year.


**If you need to reschedule your appointment or can not locate the letter that was sent home.  , please contact your child’s teacher via email throughout the summer .      They will assist you in getting an appointment that is convenient for you.      You may also call the school office at 715-284-7155 and leave a message.  The school office will  reopen for the new school year on Monday August 24, 2015
