Before-School Literacy Assessment Days!

Tuesday, August 20 and Wednesday, August 21

Before school starts in the fall, all students in grades K-5 will meet with their teacher individually for approximately 45 minutes for literacy assessments.  These assessments give your child’s teacher valuable information for literacy instruction at the beginning of the school year. Giving these assessments before the school year starts will allow targeted instruction to begin sooner.

The assessments will be held on Tuesday, August 20 and Wednesday, August 21 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  While students are meeting with their teachers, parents are asked to stay to complete paperwork.  Having paperwork completed before the first day of school will also make for a smoother start to the school year.  If at all possible, please pencil those dates into your home calendars for the assessments.  Students not assessed during those dates will complete assessments during the first week of school, though it may not be with their classroom teacher.

You will receive a letter from Glacier Hills during the week of July 22.  The letter will include your child’s classroom assignment as well as information on how to sign up for an assessment time.   Sign-up will be completed online or by calling the school office.
