MSTEP Week 1

Day 1 of MSTEP done!
Today we will start our second day of MSTEP Math. Everyone has been working so hard and I know they will do a great job. Make sure your child is getting a good night sleep and eating a healthy breakfast 🙂
Since we are working hard on MSTEP this week we will not have spelling. They should be reading and working on Study Island every night!
Have a great day!
Miss Hespen

Thursday 4/25

Tomorrow we will be having a celebration assembly where some of the students will be getting an award. If your child is getting an award I will send you a class dojo so you will know. The assembly will take place at 2:30 in the gym.

Please make sure your child is reading and going on Study Island every night. We will start our MSTEP testing this upcoming Monday, April 29th, with Math.

Thank you,

Miss Hespen
