Knight Family Notes

East Noble Middle School 2-1-16

NWEA Goal Setting Worksheet

Our math and language arts teachers have been analyzing data from the NWEA tests our students took before winter break. Our teachers use this data to drive their instruction in the classroom. NWEA data helps teachers work with students to develop small group instruction, develop individual remediation activities, or develop enrichment activities.

One very important aspect of taking assessments is sharing the data and information with our students. Over the past few weeks our teachers have been talking to students about how they are using the NWEA data in their classroom. They are also explaining the Goal Setting Worksheet.

The Goal Setting Worksheet explains how the student scored compared to other students in their grade level. It will also show individual strengths and weaknesses for your student. Staff will again use this information to help individualize instruction for their students.

This sheet will be sent home in the next two weeks from your student's math and language arts teachers.

Freshmen Parent Night

The high school will be hosting an informational night on February 17th at 6:30 for all current 8th grade students. We hope you can attend this very important meeting to learn about scheduling for high school and how to help your student be successful next year. This meeting will be at the high school, and you will be receiving a letter with additional information.

Spring Sports

If your student is interested in participating in a spring sport, they need to have a physical on file with the middle school athletic office. Spring sports include soccer, track, and golf.

Soccer and track call outs will be February 2nd during our No Excuse period. Be sure to check out the daily announcements for other upcoming events and dates.

Give and Go Basketball Game

Each year our boys and girls basketball teams host a fundraiser basketball game called the Give and Go Game. This will be our 4th annual Give and Go Game, and we hope you can come out to enjoy the evening to support a great cause. The proceeds from this year's game will be donated to our very own East Noble Abiliteam. The Abiliteam is an athletic organization led by Ryan Pepple for our special needs students.

The Give and Go Game will be on February 8th starting at 5:30.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Our spring Parent Teacher Conferences will be on February 11th from 4:30 to 6:30 in the gymnasium.

End of 3rd Nine Weeks

The end of the 3rd nine weeks has been changed from March 24th to March 4th to even out the third and fourth grading period. Report cards will be issued to students on March 9th.

We will be having our 7th grade honors breakfast on March 15th and our 8th grade honors breakfast on March 16th.

Lost and Found Table

Has your student lost some clothing or other items? Our lost and found table is heaping with all kinds of things. Please have your student check this table for lost items. Periodically items left on the table will be taken to Knights Closet, which is East Noble's clothing supply for families in need.
