Grove Student Newspaper Publication - 3rd Edition
Please check out the third publication of our Grove 4th & 5th Grade Newspaper!! This is a new club that started at Grove this year! The mission of the club is to strive to nurture a passion for writing, promote creativity and collaboration, and foster a sense of belonging. Most of all, it seeks to hear the voices of our students. The club will be publishing one edition each month throughout the school year. We will share publications with our students, staff, and parents each month! Enjoy!

Winter Benchmarking Continues This Week
We will continue our fall assessments with students this coming week and will also be conducting them in January. All students in grades K-2 participate in Fastbridge Assessments for reading and math. The Fastbridge reading and math assessments will be conducted before winter break. All students in grades 2-5 participate in the MAP Assessments for both reading and math. MAP assessments will begin the week of January 16th. Grove is also piloting the Fastbridge MySaebrs assessment (a social, academic, emotional screener), so students in 2nd-5th grade will participate in this assessment in January. I have included a link directly to the district letter with details regarding our assessments for your convenience. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or Mrs. Matthews with any questions.
Grove Family Picture Wall and Humans of Grove Avenue site!!
All of our Grove Family Pictures are now hanging up on the wall outside of the main office for our students, staff, and families to see and enjoy! We are also inviting families to submit a little blurb about their family to be included in our Humans of Grove Avenue web page that we have created just for Grove Families! I shared an example of my own blurb about my family for the site during our Parent Back to School Night! A QR code will be added next to the picture of each family picture up on the wall, which will take individuals to the story of each family. Please click on the link to the Humans of Grove Avenue Google Form to submit your family story to be included on our site and linked to the QR code for your picture. If you did not take a family photo during the Grove Family Pictures, you CAN still participate by submitting a picture and your story to the Google Form!! We would love to have all of our Grove families represented on the wall and web page!
If your child is absent, please be sure to call them into the office or enter the absence into IC before 8:30 a.m. each day. Students who are out sick with a fever must be fever free for 24 hrs. before returning to school!

Please label students’ winter gear in case it is dropped or lost! Students go outside for recess unless the temperature or windchill is below zero; as a result, they need to dress warmly for the weather and must have boots and snow pants to play in the snow when it comes!
