The spelling tests will continue as they have been from third quarter. To recap the process I will quickly explain it again here. The pre test is on Wednesday and the students need to earn a 100% before they are able to use that grade for their final score. Students that have a 70% or better will only need to do Creative Spelling for the words missed. However, if a student earns less than a 70% they will need to do Creative Spelling for all of the words. The hope is that they will see the incentive for studying and put the effort in earlier in the week so that the workload is less.
I hope everyone has taken time to see my website and view the play pictures of the kids. They have a good time and did a nice job.
Reminder: ½ day on Thursday and no school on Friday or Monday.
There will only be one spelling test this week so I would like you to remember to study these this weekend words! Plan for the test on Wednesday!
