Chasing Contentment

Thursday, April 19

Forgive me, please, as I must indulge in a moment of mama pride.

We knew Griff was doing well on the standardized tests they were taking throughout the year (they do way more of that here in Florida than they did in La.), but we didn't know the particulars until today. While we're still waiting to get his FCAT scores, we're so very proud of him for his scores on the other tests.

His teacher sent home his scores today, and he scored 20 points higher than the goal on the Kaplan test, missing a perfect score by a handful of points. His Harcourt score was 90 plus percent, and his Dibels score was also above goal.

Now, Mike and Griff are thrilled that his math/science/reading scores are so high, but what I'm most pleased about is his STAR assessment. According to the information his teacher sent home, the STAR test measure's a child's independent reading level. And Griff's reading on nearly a fifth grade level.

You bet he is! Woohoo, Griff-man!
