Ms. Wiebe, our reading specialist, needs a couple of parents each day to monitor students during DIBELS assessments August 20, 21, 22 (Monday-Wednesday).  Generally, we need 1 parent from 8:15- 11:30 to monitor Elementary students in the computer Lab and then another parent from 12:30 – 1:30 to monitor K’s in the hall by my office or in the teacher’s classroom to monitor 3’s and 4’s during nap.  Each class will only be in testing mode about 30 minutes max and even less time for the K’s.
