    Greetings Star Lake Families,

    Happy New Year! While this week has been a bit “bumpy” with weather, late starts and transportation, our staff has been so excited to welcome all of our eagles back to school! We always like to take the time after a break to revisit our classroom expectations, check in with students and see if we need to make any revisions, and “reboot” that energy and excitement needed to be active, engaged learners! This week we have been discussing and practicing our common area behavior expectations, bus expectations, and what it means to be “Kind, Safe and Productive” at school. So far, our scholars are doing a great job! As always, we appreciate the continued support from family members at home.

    In addition to restarting and reviewing expectations, January is a month in which we spend a good deal of time assessing student progress. Students will be taking the iReady reading and math diagnostic to measure growth and teachers will be conferring with students to assess reading growth through IRLA. Teachers will also be assessing standards to ensure scores on report cards are accurate.

    Students progress will be documented on report cards, which your family will receive the first week of February. On the report card you will see your child’s current reading level and descriptor. Their current iReady assessment scores will also populate. In the past, each standard assessed was listed on the report card with a score. Starting last year, the report card was revised to list broader, overall standards and skills that each priority standard feeds into. I feel the report card is easier for parents to read and understand. Students will receive a 4,3,2, or 1 for standards assessed.

    Our district has an important Levy vote coming up on February 8th! Please see the information about the Levy included in this newsletter, and please join me at our joint family zoom/ PTA meeting on January 19th at 6:00pm as I will be presenting information at that meeting as well. In addition, if you have any questions about the Levy, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me for information.

    I wish your family joy, health and happiness in the coming year!

    Best Regards,

    Kris Rennie, Principal 253-945-4007
