Optional CogAT Testing

An optional administration of the CogAT for gifted service will be offered on Friday, December 15, 2017.

Who should take this test?
1) Current 5th grade students who are NOT in Accelerated Math or Advanced Language, but have 2 scores of 95th percentile or higher on their Math or Reading MAP within the last 12 months. These 5th grade students should register for the test and will need to score a 128 on the CogAT for placement into 6th grade Accelerated Math and/or Advanced Language.

2) Current 5th or 6th grade Accelerated Math students who are interested in taking Double Accelerated Math and have 2 scores of 98th percentile or higher on their Math MAP within the last 12 months. These students should register for the test and will need to score a 144 on the CogAT for placement into 6th or 7th grade Double Accelerated Math.

Unless testing for Double Accelerated Math, current accelerated students do NOT need a CogAT score to re-qualify for Advanced Language or Accelerated Math. Nor is the CogAT needed for any junior high placements (with the exception of Double Accelerated Math).

If your child meets the above criteria and you would like to have him/her tested, please click on the link below to register for CogAT Testing by Monday, December 11th.

PBIS at Home- First Friday

Has your child told about our “First Friday” program? On the first Friday of each month, we have a building-wide schedule which allows for extra time at the end of the day for some great activities. Students are participating in some great team building activities, learning to work cooperatively in groups, doing acts of kindness, and learning how to be a great Aviator! Today, we also had our first “First Class Pass Lottery” drawing! When students cash in their First Class Passes, those go into a team bucket for a lottery drawing. Students can also choose to put First Class Passes directly into the bucket for extra chances to win! Be sure to ask your child about our very first “First Class Pass” drawing that was on today’s announcements!

Shop for everyone on your gift list this holiday at smile.amazon.com/ch/31-1298442 and Amazon donates to Edwin H. Greene Intermediate School PTO.
