    Mid-Year Progress Reports
    Please read this informational letter here for details on this year's academic mid-year progress report.  These reports will be sent to families via email on Friday, February, 3rd.  A progress note on non-academic progress will be sent home with students on that day.
    In effort to accommodate all the one-time changes to the end-of -day student transportation, we require notification to the front office 30 minutes prior to dismissal. A 24 notice to the classroom teacher would be preferred.  Thanks so much
     5th Grade Information Night eagle
    5th grade families - please join Edgewood Middle School for our incoming 6th Grade Information Night on Tuesday evening, January 31. The program will begin at 7:00 p.m., with tours to follow. Families will have the opportunity to meet teachers and support staff, tour the building, learn about curriculum, as well as other opportunities available at Edgewood. We will also be featuring displays from the following STEAM Classes for you to check out: Edgewood Engineers, Wildcrafting, Green Genius, Book Publishing, and NatureScape. We hope to see you there!

    Vision and Hearing Screening!

    We need volunteers to help with the Vision and Hearing Screening on Wednesday, February 15th. The screening is not difficult, but it does require a little bit of training which you will receive when you arrive at 9:00a.m. The nurse is really hoping for several people to work all day (9-3:30) in order to cut down on the afternoon training time. We do understand that it's a big time commitment and will happily welcome half day volunteers. Please email kimberly.buggs@moundsviewschools.org if you are interested. The PTA will be organizing a lunch for everyone who works the full day.

    Title One at Pinewood Elementary School
    Pinewood is a Title One School. Title One funds are used to support students with additional literacy needs.
    A core component of our balanced literacy model at Pinewood focuses on using frequent formative and summative assessments in order to provide specific feedback to students and guide instructional decisions. Key amongst these instructional decisions, is the identification of students who need extra support in the area of literacy. District-wide criteria is utilized to help with early identification of students who would benefit from additional literacy support. Students who demonstrate a need for intervention, are provided with daily support that matches the student’s individual need, connects to quality core classroom instruction, and is aligned to our district intervention framework. Students receiving intervention meet with an intervention teacher until district established proficiency targets are met.
