Principal Anglin’s May NewsletterPosted on April 30, 2018
The May/June calendar marks the beginning of the end of the 2017-2018 school year. Students in grades 3-5 have completed their ISTEP exams. Results will not be immediately available. We will update you as soon as we here from the Indiana Department of Education. Kindergarten and first students are assessing end of year phonemic and comprehension skills (DIBELS). These are important assessments because they tell us how well our students are learning. From this data we examine our curriculum, instructional strategies and make modifications as needed. For you, the parent/guardian, these exams provide you another benchmark in the progression of your child’s learning.
Extended Learning summer school will occur during the month of June. Meadows Edge and Walt Disney are the elementary host sites. Dates for attendance are June 11-29. This is an important learning experience for students who need a little more time and practice to master Indiana Standards. If your child has been invited be sure you get them signed up for this important learning opportunity.
IREAD 3 summer school will run concurrently and at the same sites. This session is offered to help third grade students pass the state mandated IREAD 3 exam.
I hope each and every one of you has a wonderful summer full of exciting memories of times spent with your family. Wrapping things up for this year only makes me more excited about the 2018-2019 school year when we can once again come together and create new memories. Below I have included some information that I hope you find helpful in planning for the days ahead.
Frank Anglin, Ed.S.
