How about that!? We’re almost done with January. This sure is a busy time here at Heritage. Our students typically begin a new calendar year by really making some big strides academically. From our younger students really beginning to take off with reading and our older students mastering fractions and long division, January is an important month for learning.
One of our important measures for reading progress is DIBELS. Three times a year each of our students participates in a benchmark assessment on DIBELS. Additionally, our teachers progress monitor our students for growth in between the benchmark measures. We have recently completed our middle of year (MOY) benchmark. It is exciting to be able to measure the progress of our students and see that so many have many significant academic gains in reading. Please continue to read for at least 20 minutes every day. This will help us reach our school goal of 1.5 million minutes read this year as well as help your student to continue to progress and grow as a reader!
We are collecting BoxTops right now! Please remember to send those into our school! When your child turns those into the office they will get a treat! So keep on clipping and sending them into school. Thanks so much for your participation!
There are many great events coming up, check the website (https://heritage.washk12.org) and your child’s backpack, it is amazing what can sometimes be found in a backpack!
Thanks for your continued support!
