#QLExcellence

I hope you all enjoyed a restful and rejuvenating summer with family and friends. Soon we will open our doors and welcome you to a new school year.  This is an exciting time for educators as we start anew, refreshed and ready to seize the year’s opportunities. QLE is very fortunate to have such a highly qualified, dedicated faculty of excellent teachers and support staff. I am so proud of all we have achieved at Quitman Lower Elementary, and I am confident this will be the best year EVER!

Quitman Lower Elementary sets the standard for excellence. Whether it be special events such as Fall Fest, special incentives like the iReady Carnival, or special programs celebrating the end of 2nd grade, you can expect a top notch production. Why? QLE’s staff goes the extra mile to ensure school is a fun, safe place students enjoy. Students and parents will fondly look back on the memories made during their time at QLE.

QLE excellence extends beyond Behavior Bash, Field Day, and the AR Parade. It can be found each and every day, inside each and every classroom. The data shows we offer an educational opportunity that cannot be beat. Each year our pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students are overwhelmingly successful on the state mandated MKAS2 assessment.

MKAS2 Goal Score QLE’s Average Score
Pre-Kindergarten 498 619
Kindergarten 680 741

 

First Graders take STAR Reading and STAR Math assessments to benchmark student achievement and growth. Last year’s first graders scored higher than ever before with 85% scoring at and above benchmark in reading and an amazing 94% scoring at and above benchmark in math!

Second Grade began using iReady Reading and CASE21 last year, which are highly aligned to the state MAAP assessments students begin taking in third grade. Per iReady Reading, 84% of our second graders are reading on or above level. The CASE21 results were also favorable, with QLE’s scores coming in 8th amongst all other schools whose second graders took this reading test. Yet, while we are proud of our previous success, QLE strives to achieve more. Our teachers are go getters who want to provide the best for every student. We won’t stop until we all reach the top!

 

Sincerely,
