We have a lot of September birthdays and I wanted to share with you how we will celebrate. This year students will bring home the 'Birthday Bag' which they can fill with three show and tell items to share on their birthday. They will also receive a coupon book from me. They can redeem their coupons any day that they would like throughout the year. If your child has a summer birthday we will celebrate on their half birthday.
The week of September 14th the students will also be MAP testing. We have been talking about the tests and practicing the platform to help ensure all students feel comfortable while taking the tests. We use the language that tests are an opportunity for us to celebrate all of our knowledge in a given subject area. Thank you for helping keep a positive attitude around testing and please let me know if you child is experiencing any anxiety.
