Weekly Notes - March 31

Rooted In Character Growing Towards Greatness (90-90-90)

FFA Petting Zoo

Congratulations to Jamie Earnhart and the FFA. The 13th annual FFa Petting Zoo was held this last Thursday. There were 50 FFA members and 547 elementary students involved. They even made the front page of the newspaper. By all accounts a huge success.

Future Engineers

Mrs. Maneke"s Physics students were required to build a structure using 50 Popsicle sticks and a glue stick. The top structure held over 400 pounds. Congratulations to all involved.

HLC Information

On April 19th, the Higher Learning Commission will be doing an on-site visit. They will want to meet with any teacher that teaches an Ivy Tech course. I will get a schedule out closer to their visit.

Testing Information (Thanks Michelle)

ISTEP:

Based on teacher feedback, we will not have Success Time prior to testing.


The ISTEP tests will follow a 2 hour delay schedule, with the students taking 2 tests each day except for one of the math days. The ISTEP test days will be April 18 an d19 for E/LA, April 25 and 26 for Math and April 27 for Science/Social Studies.


ECA:


I will be giving the Juniors and Seniors that have not passed their graduation requirement their ECA test May 2-5. May 2 and 3 will be Math and May 4 and 5 will be E/LA. I will just be pulling students out of class. I will send the groups and class periods out to teachers in April.


NWEA:


We will be doing NWEA just like we did in December. We will be giving the tests May 2-5. We will do Language Arts May 2, Math May 3 , and reading May 4. Mr. Moe will do make-up tests May 5.

LanSchool Update

Teachers have LanSchool installed on their laptops. Student laptop names are now updated in PowerSchool. We are now in the testing phase. The tech department has a few teachers testing the procedures to install the classes. Once that process is tested, we will have a meeting to show everyone how it is done. This should be ready the week after spring break. Thanks for your patience.
