Congratulations ELC Students! You have Had An Amazing School Year!!!
STAR 360 Testing In May
We are excited to see our students growth! As you know STAR 360 is an assessment tool our kindergarten students took this fall and winter. Students will be taking STAR 360 again this spring to monitor their growth this school year. It is unique in that it is an adaptive screener taken on an iPad.. That means that the screener will become more difficult the more questions your child answers correctly. When your child incorrectly answers a question, the screener becomes easier. Therefore, your child will take a screener specifically created for his or her learning level. In addition, your child should have the opportunity to learn the information presented on the screener because the tests are aligned with the Indiana Academic Standards.
Renaissance is norm-reference nationally standardized. Nationally standardized means that the screener was administered to students across the country. Norms are also set for the time of year the tests are taken. The scores indicate how well the child is doing in relation to students across the country.
Hip Hip Hooray for the Last 26 Days!!!

Hello parents! Here we are at the LAST FULL MONTH of school. Can you believe it?? Last month's K and Coffee focus was on Digital Citizenship. We really focus on keep our kiddos safe when it comes to electronics. You can do this by monitoring what they are watching and what they have access to at home. Setting screen time limits can help form a healthy media diet. Check out the packet that is coming home on creating a family media plan.
