5/9/2021 - Final Measurement

Hello Families! Thank you again for working with us through our state testing season. We have one final assessment for scholars to take this week and it is VERY important. We have heard a lot of talk about the deficits scholars are facing due to the pandemic; MAP testing this week will allow us to see that growth has taken place for each scholar. Teachers have been sharing with each scholar their goals for both the Reading and Math MAP test. It is ALWAYS exciting to celebrate the scholar's as they reach this goals. Scholars have the opportunity to earn incentives for each goal they reach!

This measure will support us with how to best support your scholar in the summer program but also at the beginning of next school year. For our 8th graders, these scores will communicate best placement as they choose their schedules for high school. We will be sure to send each scholar's MAP Growth Report home so you can see what has taken place this year for your scholar and work with them at home as well.

Please follow the schedule below and have your scholar in the building for 2 final assessments this week. We thank you again for your support!
