Josh has set a perfect example of being a kind, caring and responsible pirate.

Each month, students will participate in a day filled with engaging, quick review/pre-teach of concepts that data shows to be difficult for students to master. The day will allow students to rotate through many teachers so they are hearing and learning from other educators. Contents covered: math, reading, writing, science.
Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®).
During September 11-September 16, 2022, your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®). We give students MAP Growth tests to determine their instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of Math, Reading, and Science. Your child will take the tests on a computer or iPad.
MAP Growth tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. Utilizing MAP Growth tests allows us to administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth.
Each school year, students in grades Kindergarten through eighth grade will take the tests in September, January and April. Kindergarten will take the MAP Growth K-2 Reading assessment, while grades 1 and 2 will take the MAP Growth Reading and Math assessments. Students in grades 3-8 will take the MAP Growth assessments in Reading, Math, and Science.
We are truly excited to begin a new era that focuses on every child’s individual growth and achievement. Partnering to help all kids learn
, parents and teachers can have a profound positive effect on the lives of our children.
NORTH ELEMENTARY P.T.O. (PARENT/TEACHER ORGANIZATION)
We can always use volunteers for events during the year. Getting involved in P.T.O. is a great way to get to know other parents and see the exciting things going on in your child's school in a unique way!
