Hello Families ~

STEAM Night will take place at Chelsea on February 28th from 5:30-7:00. There will be many great activities for all students! The FSP Book fair will also take place on this evening!

Is your child looking for something to do in their spare time??? How about logging on to Zearn or NewsELA?? How about reading a book for their Bucket List checklist?? Every little bit of extra practice is always a good thing!

The students in my class have completed the benchmark screenings provided by FastBridge Learning. FastBridge is District 157-Cís new screening instrument that will take the place of AIMSweb. Similarly to AIMSweb, this assessment will be provided in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals and which students may require intervention. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math.

Weekly Encore Schedule ~

T Days - PE and STEM
I Days - PE
G Days - PE, Spanish and Library
E Days - PE and Art
R Days - PE and Music

Please check my web page on a regular basis. I will update it weekly with curriculum information, and I will update it Monday - Thursday with homework assignments!
