"Inspiring a love for math can open up a world of opportunities for kids. Yet, for many, math can lead to feelings of stress and anxiety. Math anxiety can affect anyone. Research shows a strong negative relationship between math anxiety and achievement. It can create a vicious circle: If kids perform poorly, they might become anxious—and that anxiety can lead to poor performance. In this Report to Parents, families can use these six ways to help reduce math anxiety for their children." Please contact your child's teacher if you have questions or concerns. Thank you to the National Association of Elementary School Principals for this excellent report! @naesp

FastBridge What is FastBridge? "FastBridge is a set of reading and math assessments that teachers use to measure student learning. FastBridge scores help teachers to know what kind of teaching each student needs to help them grow, both individually and as part of the whole class." (FastBridge) SGS used AIMSweb as our universal benchmark assessment product for five years previous to the 2022-2023 school year. We transitioned to FastBridge this school year. SHS started in 2021-2022. They had previously used the MAPP assessment. We moved to FastBridge because we found the reports to be more beneficial for our staff and their is a strong progress monitoring component that is also a part of the product. We were moving into Year 1 of a new Kansas State Department of Education accreditation cycle so the timing was right also. We will share your child(ren)'s results after our testing window closes on January 20th. We give these assessments in the fall, winter, and spring. An "Understanding the Family Report" will arrive at the same time.

Fourth graders recently completed a PBL project about fairy tales. Their driving question was: What if fairy tales we know were written today? Students brainstormed, researched, and wrote updated versions of classic fairy tales. They read them to Pre-K, first, and second grade classes as a final step for their PBL.
