MAPS Testing!

We will be taking our winter MAPS testing through the end of the month. MAPS test scores are used to determine placement for students in classes such as Language Arts and Math as well as academic interventions so doing well on these tests are very important! Please encourage your student to try their best! As an added bonus, each grade level will be giving out incentives for doing well on the tests!

Please remember that it's getting colder outside. With that being said, please make sure that students are bundled up to come to school as they still go outside as long as the temperatures are above 10 degrees with windchill. If temperatures are below 10 degrees with windchill students will be indoors, in the morning when temperatures are that low students will not be let in the building until 8:00 AM unless they are with a morning program.

Aisha Saeed

Life is quiet and ordinary in Amal’s Pakistani village, but she had no complaints, and besides, she’s busy pursuing her dream of becoming a teacher one day.

The United Way Blackhawk Region's Imagination Library


What is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library?

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until age 5. The program is designed to open a child’s mind to faraway places, exciting adventures, and sets them on the pathway to early literacy and lifelong learning.

What does it cost?

There is no cost to the families who receive the books. Books are paid for by the Dolly Parton Foundation and with an almost $200,000 investment by United Way Blackhawk Region in 2018, the program is now available to children in Beloit, Edgerton and Janesville.

How does it work?

Children in eligible communities can enroll in the program from the day they are born. Once they’re signed up, they receive a book through the mail each month until their fifth birthday.

How do I sign my child up?

Parents, legal guardians or legal custodians may enroll children by visiting

Once a short survey is completed, you will be directed to a registration portal. Once families register, a follow-up email will be sent.
