    WES WILDCATS CARE, SHARE & DO OUR BEST!

    Dear Parents & Guardians, This month students are taking the Reading and Math Benchmarks in grades 3-5. We will use this information to inform instruction. All students K-5 will continue with iReady progress monitoring which also helps to inform our instruction. Mrs. Brown

    Reading: Vocabulary is one of the fundamentals of reading comprehension. Talk with children about different words and how they are used. Model looking up unknown words online. Merriam-Webster has a word of the day for older students that has games and other activities to help develop vocabulary. Help younger students with memorizing sight words. Sight words are words that are difficult to sound out, but quite common in everyday reading. Knowing sight words and increasing vocabulary helps students to make meaning from reading at all learning levels. 

    Math: Keep working on those math facts. Having math facts under control helps students to have the capacity to work through word problems and more difficult mathematical equations. Another skill to work on is number sense. Do children know what it means to be in the ones place, tens place, hundreds place etc? One way to do this is to let them see how parents pay for things with cash and the change they get back. Do they understand the difference between a $1 bill and a $10 bill? 

    Communications: Every grade level is having a parent zoom every 9 weeks. We are also communicating via DOJO, facebook and the all call system.

    Leadership: All parents are always invited to our Leadership zooms. The link will be posted via DOJO and FB. The next leadership meeting in March 2nd @ 3:30.

    Free & Reduced Lunch Applications: Please complete these if you think your family will qualify. There are extra benefits available. The more children with free and reduced lunch benefits, the more Title 1 funding we receive. This year, Title 1 is funding a teacher, teacher assistant, interventionist, classroom materials, and programs like Wit and Wisdom. 

    Kindergarten Screening: is March 31st. This is a big day for rising kinders and we are thrilled we will be able to meet them  and screen them in person this year. Please let family, friends and neighbors know to call the office for a registration form and more information. 

    Transportation: Please remember that students cannot be picked up at the front entrance after 3:00 pm. Bus riders come out the front entrance and we want to keep everyone safe. Also, please do not cut through the car-rider lot. Please follow the path through the parking lot even if it looks like no-one is in line. Late bus announcements will be made on FB and DOJO.
