Dear Families,

Iowa Assessment (IA) scores were distributed this week, and Fourth Quarter Progress Reports will be posted on Thursday, April 26. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me regarding your child’s progress this year.

As of March 14, we have switched from Mathletics to IXL. Your child’s new User Name and Password is written in the Planner, as well as on the IXL Welcome Letter distributed this week. Please encourage your child to take full advantage of this program by setting aside a few extra minutes at home each day to practice, strengthen, and enhance their math skills.

Your child’s Reading Level range will be adjusted throughout the year.  Three AR Tests are due by Wednesday, May 9.  Please encourage your child NOT to wait until the last minute!
