**We are now half way through our final nine weeks of our Fifth Grade year together. Please continue to check up on your child's Achieve 3000 progress!  You can access their completed lessons by clicking "My Lessons" on the home screen (on the darker orange menu bar at the top), then clicking "Activities" in the drop down menu.  (That menu defaults to "Lesson Progress".  Click the black downward arrow to the right to find "Activities".)  You can scan the list of completed lessons for the number of first try scores at 75% or better* completed within the month of February. (Dates are on the left hand column.)  The  students are to complete 8 Achieve lessons from April 19 - May 18 to receive 100% Credit in the Grade Book for the 4th nine weeks. This is a wonderful way to enhance their reading comprehension abilities and bring their overall ELA grades up.
