The students have done a great job of transitioning into the school year. We have just started our first round of assessments at North Grove. Students in grades K-2 take the Illinois Snapshots for Early Literacy. Students in grades 2-5 will take both the AIMSweb reading fluency benchmark and our MAP assessment. These assessments along with other classroom assessments will provide us with a data set on each student. Our staff will use this data to establish instructional levels and provide systems of supports. Using this data correctly is a vital part in driving our instruction towards the students’ needs.
Our back to school event, “Return of the Hawks”, was a great success. Thank you to everyone who attended this event! The next time you are in the building please stop by the bulletin board in the main hallway to see a few pictures from the event.
Finally, the PTO and Mr. Nelson have made several changes to our Running with the Hawks fundraiser. Please read the paperwork that was sent home detailing the events of RWTH.
Thank you for a great start to the year!
Mr. Janisch, Principal- North Grove
