Dear South Holland School District 151 Families,
We have now entered the second quarter of the school year. Our students at all levels are learning new skills and demonstrating their amazing talents. At this point in the school year, after school activities and clubs are up and running or beginning soon. Students have taken or are preparing to take their first field trip for the school year, and students and teachers are working toward student growth goals. Consistency is the key to helping students grow.
Families can help their children grow in all subject areas by placing a special emphasis on student attendance. When children miss school, they miss out on instruction, classroom activities, and opportunities to practice their skills. The impact of missing even one or two days per month adds up quickly. When children return from an absence, it can be very difficult for them to catch up even with help from their teachers.
Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student's learning level.
AIMSweb is a universal screening, progress monitoring, and data management system that is administered to students in kindergarten through second grade. Our district uses AIMSweb to assess reading fluency and comprehension.
