Conference Week

This is parent/teacher conference week for grade one at Mann. You should have received a conference notification in your child's mail folder last week. (It was attached to their spelling test.) You will also receive an e-mail of your conference time. Because of the scheduling of some conferences parents will have a few different assessment items to talk about. This week students will be taking the end of unit assessments for Unit 2 in Open Court Reading and Everyday Math. The Open Court Reading assessment spans the course of two days and about two and one half hours in time. Each assessment is a required piece of the school's curriculum and requires focus, hard work, and determination from every student. If your child has been attending school every day, keeping up with math Home Links, and reading different kinds of writing they will be more than prepared for these tests.

Here are a few websites to visit if you are interested in extending your child's achievement from home.
