Arredondo Student Council Presents Friday Finale
At Friday Finale on December 22nd, Student Council presented a funny parody of The Night Before Christmas! Happy Holidays, Roadrunners!
Twas the day before Winter Break, when all through Arredondo School
All the students were arriving not acting a fool.
The DIBELS data was hung in the cafeteria with care
In hopes that Ms. Hamati could figure out what was going on there.
The children had been awaiting testing in single file rows
While anticipation of vacation rumbled down to their sweet toes.
DIBELS in Kinder was a big deal for teachers,
they scratched and they wriggled almost as if they were creatures.
The teachers yelled, "Yippie!" and as they logged in to mclass
The data had shown great bursts of growth in their class.
Oral reading was tested for the first time in First
The kids took a deep breath with one great big burst.
They remembered the knowledge that they had been taught
The teachers reminded them that that cant' be bought!
Ms. Livolsi and Mrs. Roberts encouraged their kiddos
And upon their return rewarded them with skittles!
Second grade was an entirely different little story
For each of their students left with quite a big worry.
Oral reading fluency goals had increased to almost double
Ms. Barua and Ms. Fox knew they wouldn’t be in trouble!
Each student worked hard and read with a flow
Acting as if there was nothing for them to know.
Third Grade teachers prepared the students each day
In hopes that they would reach their benchmarks for May.
The kids in their classes worked oh so as hard too
They used one minute timers to read. Woo!! Hoo!!
The benchmark goal for each kid in the class
Was 100 which many of them seemed to clearly surpass.
Then came the classes of the fourth and fifth grade
They waited for NWEA scores to see what they had made.
They worked harder than ever and knew it would be tricky
But gave it their all because they knew their teachers would be picky.
Both Mrs. Tabb and Ms. Peterson encouraged each student
The kids did their best and really hopped to it.
Lewis and Anaya who taught fifth grade with honor
Both awaited the scores and thought they’d be gonners.
The results soon came in and revealed the great news
These classes had rocked it without any blues.
Ms. Hamati was pleased as she entered the room
She yelled out at the students in such a loud boom-
"Children!" she said, "I am very pleased as can be
For each and everyone of you rocked your test! Hee, hee!"
She sprang to her feet, to her team gave a whistle,
And away they all went like the down of a thistle.
But we heard her exclaim, as she lept out of sight,
"Happy Winter Break to all, and to all a good night!"
