We are working hard as we head into March. March means ISAT testing. It begins March 4 and it will be finished March 7. That’s a change from past years where we gave one test each morning and continued for two weeks. This year, we will give a Reading test in the morning and a Math test in the afternoon. (or vice versa) Thanks in advance for sending your children to bed early and encouraging them to work hard on the tests.
Parents – please send a note if your child cannot complete the homework. Homework is not optional. It requires organization and discipline. It reinforces what was taught during the day. If it seems like there is extra HW or too much, it’s because the students are not working as hard as they should all day. Unfinished work from the lesson becomes homework. I expect my students to give their best effort all the time. A valid excuse should be a rare thing. I’m hearing excuses every day!
If you’re reading this blog, you accessed the Ray School website so you can see a calendar for meetings and days off. The day off for students that was set for March 28 is now an attendance day. The next day off is APRIL 14! Spring break.
