Ranger Patrons

Midterm grades for the final grading term of the school year can now be viewed on ParentVue. Midterm grades do not appear on permanent grade records. Rather, they are designed to give students and caregivers a middle of the term view of academic progress in enough time to make adjustments prior to the end of the grading period. Caregivers with questions or concerns regarding midterm academic performance should first contact teachers directly before reaching out to the grade level academic counselor.


ILEARN testing continues! The plan for testing is different depending on your student's grade level and designation as a virtual or in-person student. Please read on to learn more...

In-Person and Hybrid Students. All students, 5-8, will be taking math and ELA sections of ILEARN. In addition, 5th grade will also take a social studies section, and 6th grade will take a science section. Testing will require that we adjust our regular schedule to allow students the time that they need to complete each section of the test. No one took ILEARN last year due to the pandemic, but most will recall that each section of the test takes different amounts of time, which means that the daily schedule will be different on several days. Teachers will let students know each day’s schedule.

Virtual Students. Students that receive instruction virtually must participate in ILEARN testing in person. Students may participate at Raymond Park on the dates listed below during the regular school day. Students will be fed both breakfast and lunch, and will be testing with only virtual students. Students may work at their own pace, so a range of end times for pick-up are provided - students would call for a ride as their finish time approached. Practice tests and operational tests will be given to virtual students planning to take the test as follows:

5th Grade Virtual Student Test Schedule:

April 28 9:00am to between 1:00pm and 2:00pm (math focus)

April 29 9:00am to between 2:00pm and 4:00pm (ELA focus)

April 30 9:00am to between 11:30am and 12:30pm (social studies focus)

6th Grade Virtual Student Test Schedule:

May 5 9:00am to between 1:15pm and 2:45pm (math focus)

May 6 9:00am to between 2:30pm and 4:30pm (ELA focus)

May 7 9:00am to between 1:00pm and 1:30pm (science focus)

7th Grade Virtual Student Test Schedule:

May 10 9:00am to between 1:30pm and 2:45pm (math focus)

May 11 9:00am to between 2:00pm and 4:30pm (ELA focus)

8th Grade Virtual Student Test Schedule:

May 12 9:00am to between 1:15pm and 2:30pm (math focus)

May 13 9:00am to between 1:15pm and 3:15pm (ELA focus)

During ILEARN testing for in-person and hybrid students, the live instruction schedule of 7th and 8th grade virtual students will be adjusted. 7th and 8th grade virtual teachers will post adjusted live instruction schedules on Canvas pages.

Information regarding school options for the 2021-2022 school year will soon be released by the district. Be on the lookout for opportunities to declare the school preference for your student(s); either in-person or virtual. In the meantime, Raymond Park is already thinking about the master schedule for the 21-22 school year. All students will take core classes that include language arts, math, science and social studies. Related arts is an area where students may have some choice in their classes depending on their grade level:

5th grade - no choice in related arts. All students will take a rotation of art, music, physical education and STEM (technology).

6th grade - choice of performance music class, or rotation of art, music, physical education and STEM (technology). 6th grade related arts information may be found here.

7th and 8th grade - choice of performance music, art, Project Lead the Way, Spanish and physical education. 7th and 8th grade related arts information may be found here.

In the days ahead, students in grades 6-8 will have an opportunity to request their preferred related arts classes. Stay tuned for additional information regarding this process. Please reach out to your student's grade level counselor with questions regarding class information.

Proud to be a Ranger,

John Kleine
