Ranger News week of August 12, 2019
From Principal Kleine
Ranger students will begin taking NWEA assessments this week. NWEA Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) are adaptive reading and math computerized tests. Administered in August, December and May, the assessments are designed to target students’ academic performance according to their current achievement level. These tests determine students’ instructional level and measure academic growth throughout the school year and from year to year in the areas of reading and math.
MAP tests are unique in that they are adaptive tests. That means that test items become more difficult as questions are answered correctly, and test items becomes easier when incorrect answers are selected. Therefore, students take a test specifically created for their learning levels that also accurately identifies their level of understanding with reading and math concepts.
It is important that students put their best effort toward these assessments so that an accurate picture of their learning may be seen. A copy of your student’s NWEA results will be provided to you along with 1st term report cards at parent conferences on October 2nd.
Safety is always a primary concern at RP. Last week, we conducted our first fire drill of the school year. Drills will occur monthly to ensure that students and staff will know where to go and what to do in the event of a fire, severe weather, or intruder. Getting 1300+ students and staff to safety becomes the focus during an emergency situation, and the cooperation of all students is demanded. Thank you for reinforcing the need for student cooperation during an emergency situation with your child.
Parking lot safety is also an area of recent focus. Included deeper on this newsletter is a map that explains procedures to help ensure student safety during drop off and pick up times. Thank you for your understanding of the need to separate car line traffic from bus traffic, and the requirement that students NOT be allowed to walk through our busy parking lot unattended.
Thank you to all who have supported the annual PTSA fundraiser through either selling or purchasing product! This is the final weekend for students to earn the opportunities for reward while also helping the school. Fundraiser forms are due back to RP this week where they will be collected each morning through CORE Connect classes.
