From Mr. Teske’s Desk:
Happy New Year! I hope all of you were able to enjoy time with your loved ones this Holiday Season. At Warren CUSD 205, we concluded our first semester and jumped into the second semester upon our return in 2018. This quarter, our elementary school is focusing on improving our student attendance. As a school, we are aiming to have at least 97% of our students in attendance throughout the third quarter. Being present in school to learn within the classroom is vital for our students to achieve the goals that we have developed with them. We will be focusing on our students being healthy to achieve this goal by eating properly, getting enough sleep, dressing appropriately for the weather, exercising, and continuing to provide a safe learning environment that is conducive to student learning.
Additionally, students will be completing some benchmark assessments this month as we track the progress of their academic goals and tailor our teaching to their needs. Our third through fifth-grade will also get to experience skiing at Chestnut Mountain as we look to have fun while we are learning.
As our yearly calendars flipped a new page and with many of us making healthy resolutions for the New Year, please keep our students in mind as we attempt to keep them healthy and enjoying life both inside and outside of school. I wish all of you the best in 2018, and we look forward to seeing you throughout our community.
From Mr. Knuth’s Desk:
We would like to welcome everyone back from the winter break and hope that all were able to enjoy the time to relax and participate in some memorable activities with family and friends. As we move into the second half of the 2017-2018 school year, we want to welcome any families who are new to Warren and trust that you will find yourselves to be part of an outstanding and supportive learning community.
Students returned to school on Thursday, January 4 and we want to ask our families to be mindful of re-establishing the necessary routines to ensure that your students are in attendance and on-time each morning to get each school day off to a great start. The second round of MAP Testing is rapidly approaching. The Jr/Sr High students will be taking the MAP Tests during the week of January 16th through January 23rd. It is very important that we encourage all of our students try their best on the upcoming MAP Test. The MAP testing is important because it is used to measure a student’s progress or growth in school. The testing information is important to your student’s teachers because it indicates a student’s strengths and indicates what specific areas a student may need extra help in. The teachers can utilize this information to help them guide the instruction in their classrooms.
In closing, we would like to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and thank all of our families for all that you do in supporting our students and teachers as we look forward to an outstanding second semester here at Warren!
