Week of June 2- Math SOL Testing

Kudos and To Do's

Thanks for another great week!  Our students are feeling confident as they take their test.  Thanks for helping to create that sense of confidence!  Big ups to all of our English teachers--thanks for preparing them.  Next week we begin our round of Math testing.  I know they are ready.  Mark your calendars, we will have a final walk-through with Steve Edwards and members of central office staff on June 7th.  All grade levels will be visited.  Also, rising 6th Grade students and their parents will visit us (tentatively) on June 10th. Our visitors will start in the auditorium and be given a tour of classrooms and the first floor. 

The end of the year is both exciting and stressful. Be sure to plan engaging activities for the close of the year. School is not over until June 17. It is imperative that we send a clear message that learning will take place until the last day of school.

Instructional Focus

Work with your teams to plan fun and engaging activities for the last days of school. Celebrate what they have learned all year with high interest fun activities that you may not have had an opportunity to do before SOL testing. Your students will love the opportunity to show what they have learned.  Now is an awesome time to "Hobby Teach!" Or better yet, why not give kids a jump start on something they will need to know early next year.

Here are some links to some sites that have end of the year activities to keep students engaged.
