I want to start out this month with a super huge thank you to everyone who participated in the PTA’s Slice The Price Domino’s Fundraiser! There was FANTASTIC partici-pation and we are all very grateful to everyone who worked hard selling the cards. The PTA is hoping to have the cards delivered soon so everyone can start enjoying their BOGO pizza offer, and students can enjoy their prizes!
We are also excited this month to have our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students take the second Broward Assessment of Florida Standards (BAFS 2) assessment, which serves as a practice test leading up to the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA), which will replace the FCAT. The BAFS tests are district assessments correlated to the State test that gives us a benchmark as to how students will perform in April. We use the results of these local assessments to drill down to what each student specifically needs academically in order to improve their achievement. Our results from the BAFS 1 were very promising and we have very high hopes that our BAFS 2 results will be even better! Thanks for your cooperation in making sure that children were well rested and to school on time during assessment week.
Our fourth and fifth grade students have been working hard on their writing skills as they prepare for the State writing assessment that will take place on Wednesday, March 4th. We have had several writing workshops with a coach from the Department of Education, as well as, the wonderful writing that the teachers have been doing in class with the students. This month we will be having a mock writing assessment so that we are able to see what skills still need some reinforcing before the actual test. Be sure to ask your students to share some of their fantastic writing with you!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Parent Pizza Night on Thursday, February 19th. We will have several guests from the District and will be sharing all of the outstanding progress that our Oakridge students have been making this year in our quest to raise student achievement. There will be free pizza for everyone, please plan to come out and hear the good news!
