I can't believe that it is already January, wow how this year is flying by. We already about half way done! Now that we are in the midst of the winter months, please make sure that your student is coming prepared to go outside for recess (jackets, hats, gloves, boots, snowpants). Students will be going outside as long as it is at least 20 degrees with the windchill. If students do not wear boots and/or snowpants, they will be restricted to the blacktop and any activities permitted in that area.
Also, during the upcoming two weeks students will be taking their mid-year STAR testing. This assessment allows us to progress monitor the students throughout the year and across the grade level. It helps to inform our instruction, and make plans to meet the students needs. On the days of testing, please try to make sure that your student has breakfast and is well rested.
I have been teaching for twelve years, and eleven years in the town of Willington, CT.
