Bryan Families,


We so much fun at our One Book One School event! We held a Bryan Fair with Bingo, Cake Walk, Races, and Ring Toss. Students were able to visit the prize table and enjoy old-fashioned Bazooka gum! We also had a picnic-style lunch in the gym to watch part of the Charlotte's Web movie.


I hope you are able to enjoy Spring Break next week!


Best,

Jimmy Feeney III

Principal

Spring Testing Information

Bryan Families,


As a reminder we will be starting spring testing after Spring Break. This spring there will be a new state test, “NSCAS Growth.” NSCAS Growth, which is a blend of MAP Growth and NSCAS, assesses students in grade 3 - 8 in English Language Arts and Mathematics. The Nebraska Department of Education also tests Science in grades 5 and 8.


In order to measure growth within the school year, this spring we will also be giving the MAP Growth assessment we administered in Fall and Winter. In future years, only NSCAS Growth will be administered to students in grades 3-8.


We will send home the student reports for both tests when available.


Please reach out with any questions.


Sincerely,

Jimmy Feeney III

Principal
