Dear Parents and Guardians:
I cannot believe that we are quickly approaching Spring Break! Where has time gone? It seems like only yesterday we began this extraordinary journey!
This week (February 28 through March 4) will bring about i-Ready Diagnostic Assessment #3 and, next week (March 7 through 11) will bring about district benchmark assessment testing for our students in Grades K-4. These assessments will measure our students' growth this year, and they will serve as a guiding tool for instructional planning for the remainder of this school year as well as the 2022-2023 school year. Please make sure students are well-rested, in attendance and prepared to do their very best each day! Encourage them each morning before sending them our way, and remind them daily that WE BELIEVE in them! Both students and teachers alike have worked extremely hard this year in a most challenging pandemic, and I feel CONFIDENT they will RISE to the top on these assessments!
Following the district assessments, students in kindergarten, third and fourth grades will begin intensive review in preparation for MDE's statewide assessments which will begin in mid-April. We will send additional information regarding these assessments and a testing calendar home with students as the testing season nears. Please continue to encourage your students to work hard to prepare for what lies ahead. TOGETHER, LES can EXCEED EXCELLENCE!
Again, I can't thank you enough for all that you've done to help us at LES. I genuinely love and appreciate each of you and what you do to help our staff, students and Lake Elementary School! As always, I am honored to serve each of you and your families, our school and our community, and I'm BEYOND BLESSED to be a small part of such a wonderful school family! If I can do anything to help you, please feel free to contact me anytime.
Thanks so much,
Mrs. Seale :)
