A very special THANK YOU goes out to the
Rosedale Community for your generous support
of the Applebee's Fundraiser held for
the Weakley Family.

The overwhelming response demonstrates
the goodness in people.
The Weakley Family sends out heartfelt
thanks for your enormous generosity.

Here's a Special Thank You from
Mrs. Limberg in the Resource Room
I would like to personally thank
Catholic Ladies of Columbia Life Insurance Company
for the grant for my classroom. With this donation,
I was able to purchase literacy, math and educational materials for students.
Thank you for partnering together to build a better world
one student at a time.

THIRD GRADE READING BILL
READING PROFICIENCY REPORTS

Are you familiar with the third grade-reading bill?  This is sometimes referred to as Public Act 306 or House Bill No. 4822.   First-fourth grader families received a copy of your child's fall assessment results on Friday. The Kindergarten reports will be sent home on Monday. The focus of parent-teacher conferences won't be on the report card, which comes home in December, but rather your child's current progress academically and socially.  

To address this fall data, every classroom will have a designated period of time each day devoted to providing additional supports to struggling learners and enrichment/extension activities for children who are scoring at or above grade level on their assessments.  

We will also count on you for a home plan to help your child be successful with their grade level expectations.  This Third Grade Reading link contains many informational documents from Wayne County RESAwhich highlights the third grade-reading bill and the importance of early literacy.
Thank you for being an active partner in your child's education.
