iReady Pep Rally and Barton Store Grand Opening

Window 2 Assessments are here. i-Ready Reading and Mathematics assessments, along with 5th grade Performance Matters assessments for Science and Social Studies will begin on December 1, 2021. 

To kick off the assessments, the Barton students and staff amped up their confidence during a school-wide i-Ready Pep Rally for each grade level. Administrators spoke to the students about test anxiety and testing strategies that they can use when they take assessments. Students shared that they use the beginning, middle, and end of a story to help them with reading comprehension and writing. It was also shared with students the importance of vocabulary and attendance. Principal Adams engaged students in the audience with a math challenge. The celebration ended with an i-Ready cheer and a trip to the school store. Students were very excited to visit the Barton Bear school store. As a part of our PBIS program, students will receive Barton Bear bucks for their assessment accomplishments.
