This week is all about taking the quarterly benchmark assessment. It give us a sense of how the students are growing in their quest to master the standards. Please encourage your child to do his/her best. These scores are compared from school to school, cluster to cluster, and all across the district. It's important that we get an accurate read.
Also, we will continue to hammer away at close reading skills with multiple short informational and literary passages. We do need to assess knowledge of Latin roots at the end of the week. I'll be offering some practice for that leading up to Friday.
Thanks for checking in. - JN
