Student Assessments (Reposted from ClassDojo 5/19)

Dear Parents,

This week we are assessing all students in math and reading using an informal assessment on Google Classroom (or phone calls for those students that do not submit work) We will be doing two of these informal assessments: one this week, and one more the week of June 1st. For 4th grade students, I will choose one activity each from the 4th grade math and reading menus to assess. For 5th graders, the math and reading assessment is scheduled for Friday. Students will see it under their Grade 5 Distance Learning topic; it will be on a form, just like Daily Check-ins.

These assessments for 4th & 5th graders will be a way to give feedback to students, as well as help provide an end-of-the-year progress report that will be attached to report cards. Report cards will have no grades; just a P (pass) or NG (no grade).

I would love to get 100% participation this week on student work. Thank you for taking the time to read through this and for your continued support!Repor

Mrs. Sawyer

REMINDER:  Students should be doing i-Ready math if they finish their math early, and even if they do finish early, this is a great way to keep up those math skills!

Wax Museum Information

May 19, 2020

Dear Families,

The Influential Person Wax Museum sadly cannot happen as it has in the past, obviously. We would still like to recognize the work students were able to accomplish before school closed; so we would love to give students the option to share their costume in a slide show format. Students may include all or part of their costume, scrapbook, and/or essay in a photo. Please be sure to include the name of the Influential Person they are representing.
This is completely optional, and will be managed by a group of parents. If your child has their costume prepared, and would like to share their photo, please email the photo to Beth Martinez:

Please have photos submitted no later than June 1.

Dear Parents,

I hope you are all ready for a nice, relaxing weekend. It’s Mother’s Day weekend and the weather looks like it’s going to be beautiful! I hope all of you enjoy this time; for me it’s the first Mother’s Day without my mom. Something that I didn’t think would bother me too much, but I realize that “firsts” are a little harder than I thought!

Thank you to those who have checked in with your kiddos throughout the week on their work. Some of you have established some good routines. I am seeing varying amounts of work from students. A few have done a fabulous job of getting all work in. But I am seeing a majority of students not submitting work, so this is just a reminder to submit work on Friday. All work for students should be submitted through Google Classroom. On some documents, students were unable to type. If that happens, students can type me a message. I’ve definitely had a few messages. That tells me they are looking at the work and trying. Also, as we go along, technology will become easier, and then just when we get it down, school will be out!! 😅

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mrs. Sawyer
