We Did It!!
It's that time of year in my school...No, not the crazy summer countdown (although this is most definitely happening too), but the time when state test scores reach the building and the panic begins. We actually received word that the test scores would be in on Wednesday and yesterday we received the summer school papers for the students who did not meet state requirements. In Delaware, reading counts the most when it comes to summer school. If a student receives a 1 on the test they are required by the state to attend summer school and if they receive a 2 then our district recommends summer school to give them the opportunity to catch up. Well I am so excited to report that I only had one 2 this year and no 1's!!! Last year I think I had 3 summer school kids, which for the class I had and for it being my first whole year I was content with, but I am so happy to see that my teaching is improving. I am so proud of my students too because they really did put forth a lot of effort on the test and I am glad that they are reaping their rewards!! I can't wait till they visit me from 4th grade!!
