The Week of August 7, 2017

The first full week of school promises to bring plenty of opportunities for fun and learning!  We will have our first Montessori work time where I will be giving small-group lessons while students are working on appropriate choice work.  Everyone will keep track of their work on a workplan.  These workplans will be sent home as a progress report Friday.  Please sign and return it Monday.

All students will have a vocabulary quiz Friday based upon words taken from the science and social studies lessons.  Please study these words (that are written in your workplan packet) each evening to be ready for your quiz.  In addition, please read a book of your choice for at least 20 minutes after school.

The first administration of the MAP assessment will take place this week.  This assessment will inform me of strengths and needs of each student in both math and language studies. I will use the results to plan my lessons.  The results will also be used to measure growth throughout the year.

I will be sending home a number of papers to be reviewed and signed by your family.  Please return these items as soon as possible.

If you have not done so already, please sign up for the Remind program.  I will use this online tool to communicate important messages with you.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Mr. Trent
