Greetings From Gail

September 5, 2014elem091214 2 Here we are at the end of week two and the students are already well-established in the routines of their classroom and larger school community. The kindergarteners are adjusting nicely. Cassie our kindergarten teacher and the other adults in the room are seeing the positive influence of preschool on the children. They are very comfortable sitting in circle, listening to stories and know their way around the building.

Student government (5th & 6th grade) elected class representatives this week. They are: Sophia Isenberg, Makaleigh Eastman, Adele Tilden, Ezra Avery, Declan, Alex McFate, Kyle Carter, Taylor Bricker, Dylan O'Hearn. They will meet once a week to discuss different ways to plan special spirit activities and ways to help our school. They will serve for one trimester.

Assessments are given at the beginning of the year at different grades to get a starting point for eachelem091214 3 student. The kindergarten through second grade teachers and Barb Griffin, our primary reading teacher will be administering the POA (primary observation assessment) in the coming weeks. They will also be administering the PNOA (primary number observation and assessment) with the help of Linda Cook, our early intervention math teacher and Kathy McGowan our math leader and coach.

The students in grades four through six will be taking the DRP (degrees of reading power) to assess their reading. Third grade will be giving informal reading assessments to their students.

This sounds like a lot of assessing but it provides important information for the teachers.
