Reading Updates- Week of April 25th

For the next two weeks leading up to the STAAR test, we will be doing independent and small group station rotations to give students time to focus on their individual needs. I will also be working with students that attend Team Time tutorials to be sure that we are all prepared and ready for May 10th.

Please review the chart on the attached sheet, of the station options that will be available for selection for the two week STAAR Prep Challenge. We will be going over the procedures and expectations next week, so please hold all questions until we go over them in class!

Snacks for Starr Testing

Sixth Grade STAAR testing is just around the corner, and we think our kids deserve a treat each day after finishing their hard work!  Please sign up (link below) to donate snacks and to help assemble the snacks into treat bags.  Drop off snacks at the front desk during the week of April 25-29 and make sure to indicate they are for 6th grade STAAR testing. 

When signing up to provide snacks, please bring exactly what is listed, as we have vetted these snacks to ensure that all of our nut-allergy kids can eat them too.  Please direct any questions or comments to D’Andra Shu (dandrashu@gmail.com) or Claire Kugler (ckugler@morganlewis.com).  Thanks for your help!
