Whatcha Reading??!

Hey Guys,

I miss you all dearly and I wanted to keep in touch. Tell me what you’re reading. I’ve finished 3 books, but I’ve stayed up entirely too late each night to do so. I’ve set up a Flipgrid for us to share.

If you tell me about a book you’ve read, I will send a response.

I hope you’re all well.

Love,

Mrs. Goldman

Benchmark Scores

Hi,

We have been advised to wait to share all benchmark scores until Feb. 7th when the window closes. They will go in the gradebook at that time. Please know that I wish we could share with students immediately, but as long as they’ve worked hard and tried their best, I’m proud of them. <3
