Quarterly Test Results
STAR –

Measures mostly vocabulary – helps determine independent and instructional reading levels

Students will take STAR tests at the end of each quarter. This will show their growth in reading during the quarter.

A parent report will be sent home in report cards.

AR -

Students take tests after reading a book.

Students should choose books on their AR level (color and book level)

Work towards 85% correct

Prizes awarded at end of quarter for students meeting all 3 goals.

New goal summaries will be sent home next week with report cards. Students already have new bookmarks.

How Can I Help/Motivate My Child?
• Set up a routine and stick to it! Elementary students need structure and consistency. Set a specific homework time and spot.
• Allow students to take ownership of their work. Allow them to do their work independently – provide assistance when needed. Praise them for a job well done.
• Help them set realistic goals and create action plans – help them follow through.
• Take an interest in what they are learning in school – extend that learning to family time.
Let’s Work Together
• Please continue to encourage your student to always do their best work.
• Please continue to encourage your student to pay close attention and to listen carefully.
• Check with your student about supply levels – they may need to replenish their paper/pencil supply.
• Remember – Blue folders come home each Tuesday. Three progress reports are sent out a quarter via email. Please sign the Parent Communication Log when you receive the email – do not sign if you don’t get a report – please let me know if you do not receive a report.
