Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
We finished our MAPs testing. As soon as I tabulate the results I will send out a report home so you can see how your students did.
Progress reports went out Tuesday. If you have not checked since Tuesday, please do so. I will be checking on Wednesday to see who has not checked yet and will be sending a note home. If you don’t check your progress reports you will have to be asked to come into the parent-teacher conferences in February so I can show you how to get on and check grades.
Thursday, February 21st will be an early release day where the students leave at 11:30. That same night is teacher requested conferences from 4-8. The request letters will go home next week. Friday, February 22nd is also a no school day for the students.
That is all for this week. Thanks for reading Our Class Newsletter. Please email me with any questions or concerns you might have.
