Blackhawk Time Updates
Blackhawks _September 2017_ Blackhawks

If your child qualifies for the program, you will be getting a letter this month.  If you receive one of these letters, please consider what an awesome opportunity this is for your child.  He/She will receive 30 minutes of small group instruction to help him/her to be successful in class.  This is all provided at no cost to you, and the students are pulled from their classrooms at times that are the least detrimental to their learning.  

In addition to the letter that welcomes your child to be a part of Blackhawk Time, there will be a permission slip for after school homework help.  This is only offered to students in Blackhawk Time, is run by Cowan teachers, and again, is absolutely free for you.  This is an opportunity that is not always fully taken advantage of.  Please think about how beneficial this could be for your child.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

We are getting the program kicked-off with screeners.  These are quick, timed tests, that we will score to find the students that we are able to work with this year.  Other data is also used, including, but not limited to: ISTEP scores, STAR Reading, NWEA, classroom assessments, Bracken, and teacher recommendations.

The Title Team is working hard to complete the assessments and gather the data, so the program can get up and running for the 2017-2018 school year!

Please check back in for more updates and information!
