It is hard to believe we are wrapping up this incredibly different school year! We are thankful that we were able to have in-person instruction for the majority of the year. Your kids did a fantastic job following all of our safety guidelines and are continuing to do so.
We also wrapped up state testing in 3rd and 4th grade this past month. I am proud to say that all students worked diligently. All grades are currently taking the iReady end of year diagnostic in reading and math as well as being assessed through BAS (Benchmark Assessment System) to gain even more insight into your child’s reading strengths and difficulties.
We continue to follow Bomber Pride. It is especially important as excitement grows, as we near the end of school, to reinforce these fundamentals. We also continue to use Zones to determine how we are feeling and what strategies we can utilize to best cope and manage those emotions.
Bomber PRIDE. Have a conversation with them about what PRIDE stands for and how they can demonstrate it in each area, even while they are at home.
D: Demonstrate Safety
