Spirit Week Reminders:
Onesie Wednesday! (PJs)
Tacky Tourist Thursday!
Willard Pride Friday!
For the Homecoming Parade, we will be walking students to a designated spot on the parade route and walking back after the parade. If you choose to watch with your child and take them home, you will need to watch from our designated spot and check them out from the office afterward.
Also, the district has decided to postpone introducing the EMPOWER grading program, and to use alternate grade reporting for this quarter. I will be showing a paper grade card at conference time and will be able to further explain our new grading system.
Here's an example of what a Target Level 3 would look like for first quarter reading:
This target will guide our focus in Reading Instruction. Receiving a 3 as a grade will show the reader can do these things, a 2 will show they can do most, a 1 will show that they still need help.
Let me know if you have questions!
We are all settled in to Second Grade and are finding out what we need to work on to be successful this year! We are rating our learning with Proficiency Scales. Ask your student what they know about Proficiency Scales, or check out this link: https://www.willardschools.net/Page/2040
Our Target goals for this quarter are:
Other things we are doing:
We have two four day weeks!
