Greetings to our Families and Friends,
Its amazing that the month of September has already drawn to an end and that the cooler days of October are already with us! This past month saw our school year get off to a great start. Thank you for sending your children back to us so ready to grow and learn!!
During this time we have tested all of our children using the DIBELS reading test and the Easy CBM math assessment. Those tests help us to place your children into appropriate instructional groups and provide additional support where needed. Also during this month you as families helped to support our annual Booster Club Fundraiser. Thanks to you the group exceeded their goal and many of our children earned some great prizes.
On September 24 our student body had the opportunity to be entertained by a traveling reparatory theatre group from Seattle. They presented a play depicting the children’s book La Mariposa. It is so exciting to watch our students see one of the books they have read come to life in such a dramatic way.
Finally, each month we focus on a character trait that schools around the Yakima Valley are stressing. At the end of the month we recognize one student from each classroom who has demonstrated that trait. Pictured below are the students who were recognized for exhibiting Motivation. Congratulations to all of them!!
