On the state tests:
My 7th graders all passed their Writing test (for the 3rd year in a row!)
14 of my 19 7th graders passed the Reading test
15 of my 19 6th graders passed the Reading test
They did a GREAT job!
Then one off my colleagues gave me an envelope with goodbye cards and letters to me from all my students. I only read a few before I started getting teary-eyed. I'll save the rest until I get home and can cry like a baby from their sweet words!
