Happy 2021!  WELCOME BACK!
**We will follow the B Week rotation for special areas next week.
**There is no school Monday, January 18 in honor of MLK, Jr.
**Dr. Young has set these expectations for us regarding Tiger Time.
  • Tiger Time Expectations – Students should be completing 45 minutes a week of Lexia and 45 minutes a week of iReady.  Additionally, teachers should be providing small group instruction and support throughout the week.  We want to maximize our use of this time for all students in the second semester in order to help us reduce learning loss and gaps that are a result of interrupted schooling during the pandemic.    
​**Our virtual schedule only shows Tiger Time on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Teachers will begin meeting with small groups Monday – Thursday from 12:30-1:15.
**Tiger Time is part of the school day, so your child should be using that time to do iReady or Lexia if he/she is not meeting with the teacher.
**ChessKid is a great program in Clever that teaches kids how to play chess.  If your child likes strategies or needs help with problem solving, this might be something worth checking out and it’s FREE.

We have enjoyed being back with the children and hearing about their holiday break!  We are looking forward to a full week of learning next week.  Have a great weekend!

Stay warm!
