i-Ready Challenge
We had a great time at our Extra Fun Recess on Friday, January 5th celebrating students' efforts of achieving our school-wide i-Ready goal. Last month students worked to achieve 92% accuracy on their individual i-Ready lessons. Since they met that goal, this month we are working towards achieving 93% accuracy, specifically in reading lessons. However, students can still continue to engage in individual math lessons as well. If students achieve this goal, they will receive another Extra Fun Recess at the beginning of February. 

You can find details of this challenge and ways to support your student(s) at home, by visiting the link provided.
