|Teacher Samantha Mikrut - First Grade|
Welcome, First Grade Families! I am so excited to kick off the 2018-2019 school year! On this webpage, I will keep you informed of important dates and information through emails and weekly newsletters. You can access newsletters under the downloads section to view what's happening in our class each week regarding curriculum. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time!
Beginning the week of August 27th students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by Fast Bridge Learning. Fast Bridge is District 157-Cís universal screening instrument. This assessment will be administered in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals, which students may require intervention and help to determine advanced and honors placements for the following school year. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. Individual fall results will be sent home at the beginning of October after all students have been tested. I look forward to working with your child this school year.
**We do not have specials on a set day of the week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.) Instead, we have a TIGER schedule, which means that each special falls on a T, I, G, E, or R day. If a special occurs on a day we are off of school, then it is a NO LETTER day.
Here is our class TIGER schedule:
T day: P.E.
I day: P.E. & Art
G day: P.E. & Music
E day: P.E. & Tech
R day: P.E. & Library
**Please note that we have P.E. every day. Make sure that your child has his/her gym shoes with them!
