Daily Announcements

Thank you so much Garrett Elementary! Together we raised $311 to give to the American Red Cross to help the victims of the flooding in South Carolina. We had some incredibly generous classes including Mrs. Ruger’s class that gave $27, Mrs. Battles’ class that gave $24 and Mrs. Cooper’s class with almost $22. We are so proud to let the Red Cross know how generous the students and staff at Garrett Elementary are!

Congratulations to Brenda Ruger and Jennifer Kroger!

In response to No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and state-defined accountability models, state departments of education are required to assess annually students’ proficiencies in reading and mathematics. Most education departments employ customized tests to report student progress in the NCLB grades. In response, many education departments have linked their state tests with The Lexile Framework for Reading and The Quantile Framework for Mathematics to fulfill federal and state mandates for student growth. See the links below for more information.
