Mrs. Fadorsen’s February Newsletter

Posted on February 6, 2019

Dear Moran Families,

I would like to reintroduce myself.  As some of you may remember, I was the acting interim principal last fall when Mr. Anglin was on medical leave.  This year, I return while Mr. Anglin is out for another medical leave.  I am very excited to be back with the students and staff at Moran.  It was so much easier this year as I know the “lay of the land!”.  It was surprising to see how many kids remembered me, and I am enjoying visiting with them each day.

Although I am unsure how long I will be staying, I want to assure you we are working hard each day to maximize student learning and success.  I am sure you are aware that state standards and expectations have become increasingly more rigorous since you were in school.  Our teachers work so hard to provide the highest quality instruction to your students every day.  We value your support and appreciate any and all help you can provide your child at home:  insuring they complete their homework, read at night, and practice their math facts.  Just spending a few minutes with your child checking their homework can make all the difference.  It also shows them how important YOU think learning is and how putting forth your best effort is not only the best way to be successful in school, it is an essential life skill we all take into the world.

Currently, teachers in grades K-2 are administering mid-year DIBELS tests and students in grades 3-5 are completing  AIRWays Interim Assessments in ELA, Writing, and Math.  Teachers use the results of these formative assessments to guide their instruction.  Ask your child’s teacher what you can do to help them reach their learning goals!  We know all our students can succeed and want everyone to reach his/her fullest potential. 

As we quickly progress through February, below are some upcoming events to mark on your calendars. Please help your child come to school well-rested, fed and ON TIME! No one likes to walk in late and feel behind before their day has even begun.

2/8 – U.S. Shake Out

Once again, Moran Elementary School will be participating in the great “American Shake Out!” This nationwide drill will be conducted on Friday, February 8th. Indiana is in a fault zone and is susceptible to earthquakes. We plan to be prepared in such an event.

2/14 – Spring Parties  –  Party times vary among classrooms. Your teacher will be in contact if volunteers are needed!

2/15-2/18 – Presidents’ Day Recess – No School!

March 18-29 – IREAD Assessment for third grade students

Students prepare all year long for this week-long assessment. Please ensure your child is ready. Daily school attendance and partnering with the teacher will maximize your student’s potential to perform at their optimum level.
