The Grove Grizzly
We had another great week with the Family Reading Program!! Students definitely enjoyed this week’s reward of pancakes and pajamas!! It is hard to believe we only have one more week to go!
CogAT Assessments for 2nd and 5th Grades
The CogAt Testing window for our 2nd – 5th Grade students is opening on Monday. Parents with students in those two grades can access the official CogAT Assessment Letter in the Virtual Backpack. Students completed practice tests over the last few weeks in order to become familiar with the format of the test and the types of questions that they would be presented with during the assessment. I encourage parents to ensure that their child(ren) get a good night sleep and have a healthy breakfast next week while the assessments are taking place.
