Weekly Weber Update

August 24, 2018

Dear Jefferson Families,
Our first full week has come to an end and it has been wonderful. The students have been building their reading stamina and learning expectations for readers’ workshop, they have been doing growth mindset activities in their classrooms and have also been doing some beginning of the year assessments.

Students in grades 2-5 will be taking their MAP assessments in both math and reading in the next two weeks. They will only be taking this assessment in the fall and we will look at their growth from fall to fall. They are also being assessed using Fountas and Pinnell to see where their instructional reading level currently is in order to provide more individualized instruction in the area of reading. This assessment will be given in the winter and spring as well in order to monitor student growth.

Our first student late arrival will be on Wednesday, August 29th. This is a time for our teachers to do some professional learning collaboratively. The schedule for late arrival is as follows: 
9:37 First Bell
9:40 Teachers greet students and bring them into school
9:45 School begins

AM Kindergarten: 9:45-11:55am 
PM Kindergarten: 12:55-3:00pm
