The May/June calendar marks the beginning of the end of the 2018-2019 school year. Students in grades 3-5 are in the process of completing ILEARN exams. Results will not be immediately available. We will update you as soon as we here from the Indiana Department of Education. Kindergarten, first and second grade 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 with 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 10-28. 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.
High Ability Identification in grades K, 2 and 5 is now complete for this school year. Letters were sent to the parents of the newly identified students on March 29th. For more information about our high ability identification process, please visit our website https://www.phmschools.org/high-ability-enrichment.
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 2019-2020 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.
