Dear Titan Families~
We have successfully completed Week 1 of remote distance learning! Thank you parents, guardians, and scholars for partnering with us and our hard-working teachers! We had a small turnout to our first Family Zoom last Wednesday—40 families joined our zoom with feedback and great questions. Our next Family Listening Zoom Session is scheduled for Wednesday, September 30th at 5:30 PM. Our goal is to have 500 families join us!

MORE ON iREADY
The iREADY test assesses a scholar’s academic level in Reading and Math. This test allows teachers to know a scholar’s strengths and the needs in his/her academic learning. Scholars are to check into their SEL/CCR teacher’s Canvas page for the zoom link. The teacher will provide them with information and directions. Scholars will then work to complete the test on their own, at home. Please do not assist them. “iReady is like taking a vision-test. It helps us know what scholars can do and cannot do yet. The best way to help is by NOT helping.” We have provided an attachment for you to review.
Free and Reduced Lunch Enrollment Forms
The grace period for free and reduced lunch funding ends October 21st. If you are currently receiving free meals, all scholars have opportunity to access meals through December 21st. We are asking that all who are currently on free and reduced lunch, must reapply for the 20-21 school year at: www.fwps.org/lunchapplication
If you are experiencing hardship, you too may also apply at the given address. Some of the benefits of FRL are: low cost internet, college bound scholarships and college application waivers. You will be receiving phone calls beginning September 21 to ensure you have the appropriate information.
We hope that this first full week has provided you with a bird’s eye view of how the quarter will run. It will take some adjusting, some comforting, and some understanding on everyone’s part. Remember, this is a bold, brave new world we are heading in. The stakes are high because scholars are going to need to attend all of their classes, learn, and show academic growth. We are all here for you.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
