I am excited for the 2016-17 school year. If you do not know your child's teacher, please stop by to say hello. Please visit with your child's teacher about helping in the class. We are continuing to align our curriculum to the Idaho Standards. This will be our second year using Eureka Math and our first year with the new reading series Journeys. The goal of the Idaho Core Standards is to help students become more college and career ready by the time they graduate from high school. We believe that preparation starts here.
Testing for grades kindergarten to third grades will continue to be the IRI. The IRI is given in the fall, winter, and spring. Grades three to five at the elementary level will also be taking the ISAT by SBAC in the spring.
Hansen Elementary is on a four day school week with one student success day each month from 8:00-2:00. This is an opportunity for your child to get extra help from his/her teacher as well as the opportunity to get enrichment in science, current events/humanities and foreign languages and cultures.
Please feel free to contact your child's teacher or myself with any questions you may have. Thank you for being involved in your child's education.
