January Update (Post-SKILLS) for Pre-AP

Good morning, parents. Here are some updates and explanations that will hopefully clear up a lot of questions.

Skills Day

There has been some confusion about SKILLS days. We have used seven skills days (one in August for the eclipse and then six this month). Your child should have completed six assignments on Study Island. Mine are numbered 1 – 9. Some teachers numbered theirs 2 – 10. If you are unsure, please check with your child’s teacher. Assignments must be completed by Friday.
