**As of 2/8/18 story test will be graded differently going forward. Comprehension questions will be worth 3 points per questions and will put into IC with its own category. Vocab and word analysis will still be 1 point per questions, and be placed into a separate category in IC. This will help to "balance" the assessment grades in IC. Questions? Please reach out!

**Some students are ready for a more challenging spelling list! If your child scored a perfect on their pretest, and is up for a challenge, they were given a challenge list to replace our normal list.
