East China School District K-2 parents,
Michigan's Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmark Assessments are short, online assessments that are fully aligned to Michigan's academic standards, and may be used by teachers as one measure of student growth.
These Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmark Assessments (also referred to as the K-2’s) were developed in cooperation with Michigan educators beginning with item writing and continuing through field-test data review. The benchmark assessments currently offered by Michigan are for students in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade, in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. These will subsequently be given to ECSD K-2 students within the month of May, 2017.
If there are any questions regarding these K-2 Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmarks, please contact your child’s Principal. Thank you for all you do to support the East China School District, our students and our community.
It is always such a great day when we have family from in and out of our community here at the school. Seeing so many grandparents and grandfriends was a surely spectacular site! Thanks once again to our wonderful PTO and parents who helped organize this event or helped work the event. It truly takes a team, and we have one of the best around! See pictures below.

3. SUCKER SALE - This goes along with Book Fair. We will be selling suckers to students at lunch for 25 cents each. For each sucker that a student buys, they will be entered in a drawing for a FREE BOOK or a FREE POSTER from the Book Fair. We have alot of these we'd like to give away, so bring in those quarters on Monday and Tuesday!
Please remind them of this. Here are the grade level lunches that day: 1st grade (11:20-11:55), Kindergarten (11:40-12:15), 2nd grade (12:00-12:35), 3rd grade (12:20-12:55), 4th and 5th grade (12:40-1:15). 3rd/4th/5th grade were switched from their normal scheduled times due to the amount of students getting through the lunch line and through Book Fair with their Grandparent or grandfriend.
