Let the Games Begin!
This week our students will be taking the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI). The SRI is a reading comprehension test that assesses students’ reading skills. The score from this test helps teachers place students on the correct educational path, adjust their teaching style to students’ needs, track students’ reading growth over time, and match readers to books appropriate for their skills.
Students will be creating an informational poster about their favorite sport where they will apply vocabulary and grammar skills learned in class throughout the year.
Also this week, students will be participating in their grade level Field Day. Students will get to experience a variety of fun activities in a friendly and safe environment.
Field day dates are as follow:
8th Grade - Wednesday, May 15th
7th Grade - Thursday, May 16th
6th Grade - Friday May 17th
