Grizzly Growl: April 14, 2023

Dear Grizzly Families,It was lovely to have a few days of sunny recesses. Cross your fingers for sunny weather next week so kids can play outside! It’s been very fun to see all the art submissions turned in this week! I can’t wait to find out who our winners are on May 8!RISE Testing – Next Tuesday, our 5th grade starts RISE testing. 3rd and 4th grades will start the following Tuesday. Please support your students in having a positive test experience by helping them get to bed on time and eat a good breakfast each morning. All testing will be between 9:30 and 10:45. Please avoid tardies and check outs during the testing times. This data helps us to learn where our strengths are, and what areas we can focus on more deeply in the future. This data also contributes heavily to school reporting and letter grades. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or to me with questions about RISE.April Digital Citizenship Tip – It can be difficult to keep up with the apps, games, and websites that are popular with kids. Common Sense’s Parents’ Ultimate Guides can help keep you up to date and answer your questions about all the latest platforms and trends.  Visit Common Sense Media to explore the Parents’ Ultimate Guides for Roblox, Discord, Minecraft, Snapchat, TikTok, Fortnite, or Instagram. (www.commonsense.org/education)Homework Feedback Request – I am seeking feedback from our community on the homework our students are assigned. As we plan for next year, it is important that we are making decisions based on research and best practices, along with community input.
