A WORD FROM MR. RUPPENTHAL
Happy New Year to all of our Bulldog families! I hope each of you had a restful and restorative winter break with family and friends. While it is a new calendar year, it is the middle of the school year! We hit the ground running when we return from break. We have begun mid-year assessments which will give teachers valuable information as to how students are making academic progress.
Dibels and TRC testing has begun for students in grades
K-3 which will determine new reading levels. MAP testing in reading and math for all students will begin next week and continue through January. Teachers will share the assessment results with parents. Please make sure to take the time to check on your child's progress. If you have questions and/or concerns, please contact your child's teacher and set up a conference either in-person or by phone.
Please join me for a "Coffee with the Principal" on Thursday, January 31 from 9:00 - 10:00 am in the Kindergarten Atrium. I will provide pertinent HES and CMS updates and will also answer questions. Coffee will be provided!
We have experienced long lines of tardy students in the morning since returning from the winter break. Please make every attempt to have your child arrive on time for school. It is essential for students to not feel rushed in the morning and to have time to prepare for their day. When a student is late for class they often start the day feeling anxious and unsettled. Thank you for partnering with us on this important matter.
