Lunenburg School recognizes top students
EXCEEDING THE STANDARDS -- Lunenburg School first graders recently took their dictation test, which is part of the Primary Observation Assessment. It is a way of assessing how the students are doing with their reading and writing. The test takes place three times during the school year and gives teachers a good sense of how students are progressing with the instruction they are receiving. The results were absolutely phenomenal, indicating that all students were not only meeting the standard, but 16 out of 17 were exceeding the standards. Celebrating their achievement are: front row from left, Ellie Samora, Kaleb Crown, Conor Simonds, Thomas Benninger, Alexa Potter, James Twiss and Skyler Rundgren; back row, Leo Scott, Dexter Lawson, Katelyn Smith (Grade 1 teacher), Temuujin Johnson, Katie Liao, Alia Williams, Daisy Summers, Connor Reynolds, Maureen Ferland (Reading Recovery teacher), and Bruce Palmer.
