Mrs. Nash’s February 25, 2015 News
We are nearing the countdown to ISTEP. In fact, it begins next week! The fifth grade students will be testing on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The times for testing are as follows:
Tuesday: Math - 10:10 - 10:50
Wednesday: ELA - 10:48 - 11:48
Thursday: ELA - 10:10 - 11:35
So if your child has any appointments during these times it would be good to reschedule those. We have been diligently concentrating on all standards and feel confident they will do well. We have completed some practice tests this week and will finish others the rest of this week. Mr. Duncan will be rewarding all those who put forth great effort while testing by treating them to a movie at our cinema on March 19th. I expect all of my students will be attending with the work ethic they been showing me.
Please continue to urge your child to read. They must obtain 10 Accelerated Reading points by the end of this grading period to attend the party. They will also receive awards from Mr. Duncan for various points accumulations. Students are also receiving Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza certificates for obtaining 5 AR points for each the month of October - March.
