Welcome to the new school year! I am thrilled to be your child's teacher and excited to get to know your son or daughter. We are going to have a wonderful year of learning and growing together!
Please use this website for important dates and events that will be happening in our classroom, at Grand Prairie, and in the district. I will also place a copy of my weekly newsletter in the downloads section that will keep you apprised of the learning and activities in our classroom.
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.
