Teacher Info


ELA Teacher Amy Cumbee - Six Grade  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to 6th grade!!

Please view my page on a regular basis to obtain any ELA curricular information and additional resources.

Dear Parents/Guardians,
Beginning the week of August 27th students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by Fast Bridge Learning. Fast Bridge is District 157-Cís universal screening instrument. This assessment will be administered in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals, which students may require intervention and help to determine advanced and honors placements for the following school year. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. Individual fall results will be sent home at the beginning of October after all students have been tested. I look forward to working with your child this school year.

Sincerely,

Ms. Cumbee
