Principal's Weekly Message- January 13, 2023

Campus Updates & Reminders:

It has been a wet and windy week at Korematsu! With the sun (hopefully) on the horizon, we are excited to get kids back outside and active. Please continue to have your child dress warmly.

The second round of iReady assessments will be happening over the next few weeks. This is a snapshot in time about each child's independent progress and is used by our teachers to tailor individualized intervention and support for all students to succeed. The data that we will gather from this assessment window will be compared to the test from the fall. It is also a great planning tool for our teachers in grades 3 through 6 to prepare for the upcoming state SBAC testing in the spring.
