Student Federal Impact Aid Survey

Each year the district uses the Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid to identify our federally connected students and to support our request for Impact Aid resources. The survey was released through the parent portal in Focus, as well as on the district and school website. We are requesting that parents/guardians complete the online survey for each school-aged child in their household. All electronic survey forms must be submitted by December 17th.

Fine Arts Student Spotlight

"EJ Sitzmann, has been doing fantastic work this year! Each project seems to exceed her last, and her work ethic is unparalleled. The image shows her with her work in progress- a ball point "pen and Ink" using an incredibly detailed Stippling technique, where all that you see is created with tiny dots." Mr. Russ

ASVAB Assessment

The ASVAB will be given December 18th at 7:15 am. If you are interested in signing up for the assessment, please go to the school website.

PMA 2 Testing

All classes that take an FSA/NGSSS assessment will complete Progress Monitoring Assessments (PMAs) during the course of the school year. The PMAs are designed to be administered towards the end of the quarter; they assess the material that should have been completed up until that point in time according to the district's curriculum pacing guide. Each quarter, the test gets "larger" as it adds additional content and standards. The testing window for PMA #1 is December 4th-December 17th.

The following courses will take the PMAs:

9th and 10th English

Algebra 1
