Greetings, Rosebank families! We are now entering Week 4 of school. 🙂 Thank you again to those who attended Back to School Night last week. This week we will be completing our Achieve3000 LevelSet, which will set a baseline of your child’s reading lexile range. Remember that 4th grade range is 720-940. After the LevelSet, students will be able to start the Achieve3000 literacy program online. We will be using Achieve3000 heavily this year. I encourage your child to use this program at home as well, to build nonfiction reading skills. Login usernames and passwords for your child for the Achieve and ALEKS (math) programs will be sent home on their individual Homefun Planner.
This week there will also be a change on the Homefun Reading Every Night. Students will now be required to read at least 25 minutes (for the next two weeks) instead of 20. After that, it will ramp up to 30 minutes for the rest of the quarter. Let’s build that reading stamina!
This Friday 9/26 will be our first Spirit Day: Crazy Hair Day! How will you get creative and show your Panther Pride?
Please submit lunch application right away if you haven’t done so. We have a wonderful opportunity for all Rosebank students to receive free breakfast and lunch for five years if 100% of applications are submitted. Apply online at https://parentapp.cvesd.org.
Book orders are now due. Submit orders online here.
Our first two math quizzes are being sent home today. Please review with your child and sign near child’s scores on both pages. Return to school tomorrow. Thank you!
Weekly Progress Reports are due Mondays. Your child should be earning 2.0 AR points every week (2-4 AR tests). Please review with your child, sign, and return. Thank you!
