Dr.Greene's Back-to-School Letter 2018

 


MAP TESTING: Second graders completed the Fall NWEA MAP math and reading assessments this week; second graders test next week. MAP is a computer-based assessment that dynamically adjusts to each student’s responses. Teachers receive results within hours and use the data to create differentiated lesson plans based on students’ strengths and areas for growth. If you have any questions about MAP or the District's assessment program, please contact Dr. Greene.


CELL PHONES IN THE DRIVEWAY: Drivers should cease using their cell phones during pick-up or drop-off time, when students are present on the sidewalk. We understand that some people arrive early, but once the students appear, the potential for distraction makes cell phone usage unsafe. Thank you for putting down your phones while there are children on the sidewalk!


LEARNING CENTER: All classes in grades 1-3 have gone through a Makerspace orientation session with Mrs. Johnson. The Makerspace opened this week for students during morning and afternoon recesses. Click here to see photos from this week's Makerspace explorations!  


LOOSE PARTS PLAYGROUND PROGRAM DONATIONS: Plans are underway to launch a special Tuesday lunch recess program for 1st-3rd graders, and that means we’ll be collecting lots of “stuff”! We’re talking... stainless bowls, tarps, water noodles, large cardbood tubing/pvc pipe, buckets/pails, cones, wood, netting, bike tires, parachute/tent materials, rope/yarn/twine, clothespins, wooden spoons, small tree stumps, etc. Here’s a link to a quick 2-minute video that should give you a hint of what we’re planning! https://www.playpods.co.uk/


REMINDER: To sign up to volunteer in the Learning Center, contact Mrs. Johnson @ johnsonk@sunsetridge29.org.
