    Greetings Star Lake Families, 

    Phew!  Winter sure decided to come out full force in February, so much snow! I am excited to have our students and staff get back to our normal routine! Our first semester is behind us now and we are continuing the daily instruction, practice, skill and concept building necessary to increase academic growth and move all of our students toward meeting standard.   Just a reminder that report cards are coming home, tomorrow, Wednesday, February 20th . I am very pleased to see the growth so many of our students have made in reading and math since September!

    In January, we take a mid-year progress check and I have a few exciting data points to share with you.  This data is presented in “overview” statements.  I will share more in detail at our next PTA meeting.  If you are interested in more detailed information, please contact me, I would be happy to share.

    ACADEMIC: Goal 4

    Currently 40% of our students are ON TARGET for reading in IRLA and 54% are reading within their GRADE LEVEL.  We have the HIGHEST % of students on target, and the most growth for reading, in AREA 4! (TJHS, Kilo, Totem FWPA, Camelot, Lake Dolloff, Meredith Hill, Sunnycrest, and Valhalla)

    On our district iReady reading and math assessments, which students take three times per year:

    In the fall 25% were on grade level for reading, in January that increased to 42%

    In the fall 14% were on grade level for math, in January that increased to 36%

    WHOLE CHILD: Goal 2

    Our average daily attendance is 92%, and 73% of our students have 90% or better attendance rates. 

    98% of our students have received NO exclusionary discipline (on or out of school suspensions)
