Learning Look In - MAP Testing

This week students completed the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) Test.

This assessment helps teachers get a baseline of what students already know and are able to do so they can determine how to best meet the academic needs of your child.

The test will be administered again in the winter and spring to check that students are making academic progress.

After School Activities

Chippewa offers many after-school activities. It is our hope that every student joins at least one after-school activity during their time in middle school.

Activities are held Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays after school from 3-4pm.

There is an Activity Bus that can take students who normally ride the bus home at 4pm at no additional cost.
