Hello Sam Hughes CREW!

Thanksgiving Break
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I would like to take this opportunity to express my how thankful I am to be a part of such an amazing community. The students, staff, and families of Sam Hughes are truly amazing! I would like to express my gratitude for everyone that makes it possible for students to come to school everyday on time. Thank you for making daily attendance a priority. I would also like to thank the teachers who pour their energy into making each classroom an exciting place for exploration and knowledge! Finally, I would like to thank our support staff and many volunteers who provide the extra hands and attention our students need.

So thankful for our CREW!

Benchmark Assessments
Quarter 2 Benchmark Assessments will begin December 2nd and go through December 13th. Students in grades 2 through 5 will be assessed in ELA and Math on Highly Leveraged Standards from the district Scope and Sequence. This quarter students will be asked to produce a writing sample in addition to taking the multiple response question assessment. Students in 3rd-5thwill complete all of their benchmark assessments online through the SchoolCity Platform. 2ndGrade students will be able to submit handwritten writing samples and complete the multiple response questions online.

Please help our students be successful by having them here on time, well rested, and with a healthy breakfast. Students in Kindergarten and 1stgrades can support the testing grades by creating a quiet learning environment. This means respecting the signs that are posted in the testing areas.
