BAS and MM: As you all know the BAS must be administered with every student before the end of the year. BAS folders will be passed on to next year's teacher. Please at least send on the BAS forms for at least for the last test or two you administered. That way the receiving teacher can see your notes about the student. I have also asked the RI teachers to provide you with the forms for the students they tested, so they can be included in their folders, as well. As far as the inside of the folder goes just check the box next the the books you used, so the next teacher is aware of all the books you used with that kiddo. I contacted the testing department to determine if we needed to enter the data into Mastery Manager like we did at the beginning of the year. Since BAS is part of the district assessment plan we will need to enter it into Mastery Manager.

In order to expedite the process I recommend entering each student's data as you finish their test. We will very likely have time on our early release day to enter the data if you have not completed it by then. Here is the link to the instructional video we viewed in April in case you need a refresher.


I know this is one more thing and for that I am sorry. Please let me know if I can help in ANY way.

Time Capsule - Thank you to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th grade for deciding on your time capsule contributions (ticket stubs, Pokemon cards, Under Armour and "selfies"). Please decide on what your grade level would like to contribute no later than Monday, May 9th. remember it must be able to fit in a 4" X 30" tube). Each grade level will need to designate someone to come up during the assembly and share/show what you are contributing. Thank you!!!

Class Placement Schedule - Thank you to Tina Kilpatrick for putting together the class placement schedule. She worked very hard to ensure each grade levels time was outside of your plan time. Please plan to come to office conference room during your scheduled block on May 10th. See below...
