February 2015

Dear Roose Families:

January was a busy month and February gets even busier!  The teachers are in the process of completing their reading assessments so that we can determine how to change our instruction to best meet the needs of our students.  NWEA is finishing up the first week of February.

February's character educaton trait that we will study is empathy--the understanding or being aware of another person's thoughts, feelings, or experiences.  As always, please use this word at home as well.

Our teachers continue to work hard on our School Improvement Plan.  We are in the process of evaluating the current plan so we can make appropriate revisions for next year.  This year, we are focusing on three areas:

Balanced Literacy Framework - all of the components that make up literacy instruction including Read Alouds, Guided Reading, Independent Reading, Interactive Writing, etc.

Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS) - evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school's sense of safety and support improved academic outcomes.

Classroom Instruction That Works (CITW) - Nine (9) classroom teaching strategies.

We are also in the process of planning for the new state assessment that our students will take this spring--the M-STEP (Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress).

Some facts about M-STEP:

  • The M-STEP test replaces the 44-year-old MEAP test.
  • M-STEP includes Michigan-developed content as well as content from the multi-state Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.
  • The M-STEP includes a summative assessment designed to measure student growth as well as a performance task.
  • English Language Arts and Math will be assessed in Grades 3-5, Science in Grade 4, and Social Studies in Grade 5.

Please don't hesitate to call or email with any questions.  I look forward to seeing you the first week of March during parent/teacher conferences.

Sincerely,

Shannon McBrady, EdD
Principal
