    Dear Lewis Community,

    It is hard to believe we are at the end of October already. Even in this unprecedented school year, the days are certainly flying by.  Happy Fall! 

    Yesterday, all of our Third, Fourth and Fifth grade students received their own chromebooks. Unfortunately, the travel cases are on backorder, but will hopefully arrive soon. Several teachers would like for students to keep the chromebooks at school, so you will hear directly from the teachers as to whether the chromebooks will remain at school or travel back and forth. Hopefully once the travel cases arrive, we can have children practice bringing them back and forth to school and home more often. 

    The holiday of Halloween is right around the corner. This year, we will not be doing any classroom parties or costumes. I recognize that last year we did let students wear costumes, but we were virtual. Due to the many Covid restrictions in place, classrooms will not be having "parties", yet many are doing fall arts and crafts throughout the week. If this is a holiday you celebrate, enjoy October 31st. 

    As we enter the month of November, you will be hearing from teachers to sign up for virtual conferences on November 22nd and 23rd. We will also have November 11th off for Veteran's Day. November will certainly fly by quickly too!

    The OHSU/OHA Covid test kits will be coming out in the next few weeks. Seems to be a slower process than everyone thought. We are still waiting to receive some of the materials so we can send them home to you. More information to come soon. Sorry for the delay, but this one is certainly out of our hands.

    Enjoy the fall colors and change in seasons!

    Thanks!

    Deanne

    TALENTED AND GIFTED

    Testing for last year’s nominations has been rolling out and we hope to have notices for families as soon as all tests have been reviewed.

    ALL 2nd and 3rd graders will take the NNAT 3 assessment this year to screen for intellectual ability. The testing window has been extended beyond October but we hope to have this completed before conferences.

    If you are interested in nominating your student for TAG in Reading, Math, or Intellectual ability, please reach out to your child’s teacher to discuss. Online nomination forms for this year will be due on or before December 3rd and can be found on the Lewis website.

    For more information on TAG at PPS schools, please view our information presentation linked HERE.

    For the Lewis TAG Building Plan, please visit https://www.pps.net/domain/1418 and view the TAG Virtual Bulletin Board.
