Dear SW Families,
Please find important information regarding American Education Week Visitation, Parent/Guardian-Teacher Conferences, and K-2 STAR Assessment in this newsletter. We look forward to welcoming parents and caregivers to school to visit classrooms and meet with teachers.
Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep our school safe and secure. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a fabulous weekend!
Take care and be well,
Raptor System Registration
We are looking forward to seeing you in our schools during American Education Week on November 15, 2023.
As part of our safety and security procedures, all visitors to our schools are expected to have their license scanned by the Raptor System upon entrance and before moving through the building. In an effort to decrease the number of parents needing to scan their license on November 15, we are inviting you to stop into the office on Monday, November 6, Wednesday, November 8, or Thursday, November 9 between the hours of 9:00-11:30 or 12:30-3:30 to scan your license and prepare your visitor's badge. This avoids the need for you to scan on November 15 when there will likely be a lot of people visiting the school to attend their child's classroom.
If you have already scanned in this year using the Raptor System or come in on November 6th, 8th, or 9th to scan your ID in the Raptor System AND you RSVP (below) we will have your ID sticker preprinted for you when you arrive on November 15th for the visitation day.
Please know it is not mandatory that you come into school next week to have your license scanned, but we are encouraging you to do so (if you have not already scanned in using the Raptor System this year). Otherwise, you will be obligated to scan your license in the Raptor System on November 15 which could take time away from your classroom visit.
Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. Thank you for your consideration.
Kindly RSVP for American Education Week Visitation November 15th.
American Education Week Visitation Day 11/15/23 RSVP Form. If you have more than one child, please complete the form for each child.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have already visited our school this year and scanned in using our RAPTOR System AND you complete this form, you do not need to stop in next week to scan your ID in the system.
Thank you very much!

If you come in on 11/6, 11/8, or 11/9 to scan your ID in the Raptor System and you completed the RSVP form by 11/13 we will have your ID sticker preprinted for you when you arrive on November 15th.

STAR EARLY LITERACY ASSESSMENTS (K-2)
The STAR Early Literacy Assessments by Renaissance, STAR Reading and STAR Math, are comprehensive literacy and math universal screeners that are computer adaptive. These assessments will provide teachers with current, reliable and valid data quickly so they can target instruction, monitor progress, provide students with instructional materials, and intervene and enrich where needed. Assessments will occur 2-3 times during the school year for students in grades K-2 in both reading and math. The first assessment will be completed for the K-2 students in the coming days. Student reports will be provided to families at a later date.
