A short, productive week
I hope that you and your family are all doing well and staying safe. We had a great week here at school! The kids had so much fun in the snow on their day off. I saw many families playing on the hill at school this week! I had one kiddo message me from their iPad- "Dr. OH- it's snowing, why we are we at school?" I had to smile and laugh and visit him and attempt to explain snow days. I think I failed:)
I've had the opportunity to get in classrooms for some great lessons! Our first grade team is piloting Sonday (a phonics program) this semester. The teachers and kids are enjoying and getting used to the program and we are seeing positive results. This change was in response to our winter benchmarking data.
Looking at our progress monitoring data, our students in all grades are making great progress. We are excited for our upcoming progress monitoring meetings the first week of March, where we analyze student progress and determine if they are ready to exit/reduce/change their interventions. Our teachers, interventionists, and teacher assistants have really hunkered down this quarter and worked hard shoring up specific skill deficits and I'm so proud and grateful for all their hard work! It truly is awesome to see the growth our students are making. They are feeling more confident in their skills and are proud of their progress. Check in with your child and I bet they will be able to celebrate recent success!
