    The administration of the Broward Standards Assessment began last week and will continue throughout the month:  January 14th and 15th - Grades 4 and 5 ELA, January 16th and 17th - Grade 3 Math, January 23rd and 24th - Grades 4 and 5 Math, January 28th and January 29th - Grade 5 Science.  The Broward Standards Assessment (BSA) is a benchmark to spring's Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) and will provide targeted data in all ELA, Math and Science strands.  Also, all students (K-5) will have a benchmark writing assessment on February 1st.  As always, promptness and attendance is important to student achievement.  Whenever our school tests, we are in need of proctor support and wish to thank all of our parents and family members who assisted our school this past week.  If you are an approved volunteer who is willing to assist during this testing window, please contact Ms. Mascarella as soon as possible.

    The first of our extended learning camps will begin in February.  This camp is designed for English Language Learners and will be instructed by our teachers, coordinated by Mrs. Quezada, ESOL Resource Teacher.  Once the forms are dispersed, please return them to your child’s teacher or Mrs. Quezada ( with any questions.

    By this time, all students have completed their I-Ready diagnostic assessments in Reading and Mathematics and should be working on their specific learning paths. Each student’s learning path is differentiated to meet their academic needs and aligned to the standards.
