The new chapter of our book has gotten off to a hot start. It seems that Mother Nature always knows when the school doors open to welcome back students. She seems to bless us with unusually hot, humid weather. This week, it appears, she may be relaxing a little as our temperatures seem to be a little more tolerable. I give the students a lot of credit as the conditions were not the most suitable for quality learning. Students did a wonderful job!
The Iowa Core will be something that both parents and students will be hearing and learning about this year and into the future. These K-12 standards will help to ensure that our students are college and career ready. The standards are grade specific and progress with your child. Our focus this year is on the English Language Arts and Literacy standards. These are standards that cross the curriculum so they should be seeing and hearing about them in other subject areas.
I look forward to working with your student as we journey through literature.
