i-Ready Diagnostic Testing
Students who earned a level 1 or 2 on the 2016-2017 End-of-Grade math and/or reading assessments are completing diagnostic assessments called i-Ready. These diagnostic assessments, given three times a year, provide data to help pinpoint areas of strengths and weaknesses in math and/or reading and are used to improve instruction. Testing for tracks 1-3 has concluded. The parent report provides an overview of the domains tested and whether the student is on-level, approaching, or needs improvement. If you would like a copy of the parent report, please contact Mr. Howe (email@example.com) to request your copy.
Do you have some extra play equipment lying around? Do have an outdated wired mouse you no longer need? Do you have earbuds that are going unused? If so, we'll take them off your hands. Check out our Sign-Up Genius for some supplies that we would love for you to send in if possible. Thank you in advance for your support!

We're going to be working on developing a growth mindset with our students this year. Parents, are you interested in learning more? Check out these links for tools and activities you can do at home to support our efforts in developing strong "Can Do" attitudes with our students.
Growth Mindset for Parents
Who are we?
Homeroom teachers will print progress reports for their students mid-way through each quarter. Students are expected to take the progress reports home and share with parents. PowerSchools will remain the primary source of grade posting/sharing between teachers and students/parents. We expect our students and their parents to be logging-in to PowerSchools weekly.
The progress report dates for 2017-2018 are:
