Notes from Information Night #2 on Writing

Dear Needham Families, Before break, we held our Information Night #2 on the topic of student writing. We shared 9-R's Graduation Standards and Performance Indicators for writing in the two grade spans of K-2 and 3-5. We also shared samples of student work, so that parents could see the growth from grade to grade. As a school, we have chosen to report to the district on argumentative and opinion writing this year; on January 24, we will submit our most recent scores to the district to show what percentage of our students are proficient or advanced in argumentative and opinion writing. At our next SAC meeting, we will review the mid-year data to determine progress toward student learning goals. At the Information Night, we also answered a couple of questions that had been posed by parents. For the q & a, please check out this following link.
