  • Angie EllenbeckerDear Adelaide Families,

    October has been a busy and productive month here at Adelaide! All of our students in grades 1-5 have completed the iReady diagnostic assessment in reading and math. This sets the level for students’ mypath lessons so that they are working on “just right” skills. Students have an opportunity during the school day to access mypath lessons, and you can always access them from home as well. Students in grades K-5 have all had their reading leveled in IRLA, kindergarters have been taking WAkids assessments, and 4th and 5th graders took the fall state assessment. All of this assessment data gives our teachers prime information about students’ areas of strength and growth and help us to determine interventions and extensions.

    READ, READ, READ! Now that our students have been leveled in IRLA they each should be bringing home books to read EVERY DAY. Students who read 30 minutes a day will encounter 13.8 million words by graduation! And all those words lead to higher comprehension of new text because students are exposed to a huge variety of topics and vocabulary. Please help your child find a good place to read at home, and someone to read to…it can be a parent, a sibling, a grandparent, even a stuffed animal! I am excited to see the growth our students make as readers this year!

    1.  Student led conferences are November 4th and 5th. Teachers need to meet with EVERY family, and are excited to talk about your child’s progress with you! Please follow the link your child’s teacher sent you via email to sign up for a conference time. Conferences will be via zoom, unless your family has a request for a face to face conference. Please reach out to your child’s teacher with questions.

    2.  And, don’t forget on conference days to go visit Mr. Alvick, Mr. Ebbers, and Mrs. Harmon, they will have their Zoom rooms open during conferences as well, and their links can be found on your teacher’s canvas page. 

    I enjoyed seeing families at our family Zoom PTA meeting this month! Please watch for an invitation to our November family Zoom meeting. The discussions at these meetings, along with our scholar advisory meetings, and parent advisory meetings provide our school with varied and important insights into our academic and behavioral goals, our school improvement planning, and the day to day workings of our school. I look forward to our conversations and to sharing the information I gather.

    I wish your family a healthy November, and if you celebrate, a Happy Thanksgiving!

    In partnership,

    Angie Ellenbecker
