Healthy Futures!

You received a letter earlier this year explaining the details of Healthy Futures. Here is a short recap

  • Healthy Futures is a statewide, grassroots movement to help youth build positive, lifelong physical fitness habits.
  • To participate: with your assistance, your child records physical activity on the Healthy Futures Activity Log.
  • Qualifying logs must show at least 60 minutes of physical activity during a day, for at least 15 days of the month.
  • Students can now count their active time during PE class and recess.
  • Students turn in completed logs to Ms. List with your signature in exchange for exciting prizes, including the chance to win a grand prize sports package of their choice, worth up to $300.
  • The contest will run for the months of September, October, November, February, March, and April.

MAP Growth (Gr. 3-5)

MAP Growth is the ASD benchmark assessment for students in grades 3-9 in reading and mathematics. Grades 10-12 also take MAP Growth as part of Tier II and Tier III reading and mathematics courses.

MAP Growth is an online benchmark assessment tool used for instructional purposes. MAP Growth is an adaptive assessment that provides each student with a personalized testing experience with data that speaks to their individual progress and growth in mathematics and reading. Practice tests and accommodations are available.

The MAP Growth Benchmark will be administered in person during the benchmark windows for 2021-2022:

  • Fall Benchmark 1—September 27 - October 8
  • Winter Benchmark 2—November 29 - December 10
  • Spring Benchmark 3—April 18 - April 29

MAP Growth Benchmark practice tests are available to allow students the opportunity to become familiar with the types of questions and tools available on the actual MAP Grow assessments such as the highlighter and calculator. Practice tests are provided at practice.mapnwea.org and require login information
