Math and Reading Over Spring Break

Happy Spring Break! Students have been working hard and now it is time to relax, have some fun, and enjoy the nice weather and time spent with family and friends.

With that being said, students should still be practicing necessary skills to get them prepare for testing.

* Math and Reading Packets were sent home with students today. It is not recommended that students complete the packets all in one day. These should be completed day-by-day, putting forth best effort. These packets are meant to review important skills that students will need with M-STEP testing beginning after Spring Break. It is suggested that students complete 2-3 pages per day over the 9-day break. Also, students should be logging their iReady lessons, with rewards for those that receive an 80% or higher. Zearn should also be done daily, if possible. *
