SPELLING BEE
Hello Everyone!  Plans are underway for the 2014-2015 Scripps Spelling Bee here at Triangle.  The classroom bees will be sometime mid-December.  Once all classes have been done and two winners from each class are determined, preparation for the next level of words will be sent out.   The date of the school-wide spelling bee will be February 4th.  A make-up date of February 11th is also set if needed.  If you have misplaced your list, please see Ms. Phillips in room 229.


 
RAZ KIDS READING PROGRAM
Triangle Elementary has subscribed to an online library of exciting reading materials. Raz-Kids helps students improve their reading skills as they listen to a book read for modeled fluency. Then, if the computer has a built-in record function, they can record themselves reading the same book. Or, students can read the book to themselves or aloud for practice. Interactive quizzes are available at the end of each book to check for understanding. It is not necessary for students to record themselves but if they have the capability that is always a great way to improve fluency.


Here is how to access the website and your child’s reading assignment from any computer connected to the Internet:

1. Go to www.raz-kids.com from your Internet browser and click the Log In tab .
2. Type in the teacher username and click  the green GO arrow.
3. Find your name on the chart and click on that.

The books in assigned to your child’s based on his or her independent reading level appear on his or her personal assignment page. Your child should choose to listen, read, and then take a quiz by clicking on the symbols below each book.
IXL MATH

Triangle Elementary is excited to provide all students with an IXL account. IXL is a comprehensive, SOL based math program that students can use at school AND at home! This is a wonderful way to support math instruction at home!!


Students can earn awards and parents can look at student progress reports. Please encourage your student to use IXL as often as possible. To access your account, go to Triangle’s homepage at  www.ixl.com/signin/triangle. There students can enter their username and password. If your learner is not sure of his/her login information please contact the homeroom teacher or Mrs. Adams at adamslj@pwcs.edu.

TRIANGLE ELEMENTARY NAMED 2012-2013 SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE
For the second year in a row, Triangle Elementary School has been named a PWCS "School of Excellence". Please click HERE to view the press release and a listing of all PWCS schools who achieved this status.    

According to pwcs.edu: "Receiving a “School of Excellence” flag is a source of great pride for a school community in Prince William County. Schools attain this designation by demonstrating high levels of performance— they must be fully accredited by the state, meet Virginia academic Annual Measurable Objectives, and achieve an overall score of 90 out of 100 points on PWCS Strategic Plan-based measures. This year, 44 flags will be handed out at Schools of Excellence celebrations to mark this achievement.


Maintaining this designation is not an easy task. The finish line that marks success moves each year, ensuring that schools never rest with their last accomplishments. In all, 37 elementary schools, five middle schools, and both traditional schools are named Schools of Excellence this year based on 2012–13 data. The categories of criteria are the same as last year.  
The School of Excellence distinction is the highest recognition awarded to a school by the Prince William County School Board."
