Dear Parents and Guardians:
Spring is here! We have approximately 40 days left of school. There’s much to be accomplished in such a short time.
During the month of May Grades 3-5 will be testing using the Smarter Balanced online assessment in reading and math. Grade 5 will also be tested in science. We scheduled the testing as late in the school year as possible so the students could have more instructional time and have a better opportunity to meet with success.
All grades will be taking the mClass reading tests. This assessment will determine if summer school is necessary for individual students.
Students in grade 2-5 will also be tested in math using the online system i-Ready. Grades kindergarten and one will be using district created math assessments.
Please discuss with your child the importance of always trying their best on the tests. We need to get a most accurate academic picture of your child to best meet their individual needs.
Also, we would appreciate your discussing with your child the behavior that you expect them to exhibit while in school and on the busses. We need to instill mutual respect for all students and staff. The children need to understand that we all must be H.E.R.O.s (Help Everyone Respect Others).
Thank you and have a wonderful Spring Recess.
Reminders: Cellphone, Game boys, mp3 players are not allowed in school.
