That's awesome.  They are doing testing in my dd's class this week.  When I went for an observation visit, they were in the middle of testing.  I'm curious to see what the teacher does with the results.

Congrats! I'm curious though, what exactly is advanced class in kindergarten? they go to a different class or they just get different attention, more work?

 they are moved to a different class. I think there is 4 classes for the advanced students. The way they explained it to us was instead of them relearning the phonics and how to write the letter all over again (regular kindergarten) they would start right in with learning more site word to help her reading skills... same thing with math. They told us that if we ever felt she was too overwhelmed then we could move her back to her original teacher but so far she is doing excellent... :) she even got a bookmark as a reward for reading the word "is" :)

That is great! Congrats. What's the program like, more 1-on-1 or just more advanced curriculum? Dominick is still trying to adjust and after talking with his teachers he just seems to be getting distracted very easily. But congrats about your daughter!!
