As we gather data on our newest students and revisit data on our returning students, we gain direction as teachers. When you enter our building, you will notice a quote on our bulletin board that states, “Success is not a destination; it’s a journey.” What we are seeking is a road map. We need to know our beginning mark so we can set our course.
August 30th begins the two-week window for our universal screening. Third grade students will be given the TPRI while fourth and fifth graders will be asked to complete Read Naturally. Also, third graders will be taking their very first Math Probe on basic addition facts and fourth grade will take a Math Probe on Place Value through hundred thousands.
These are exciting times at White Oak Intermediate. We are having a W.O.nderful year.
