Fall MAP Testing

MAP Testing begins next week. Students complete MAP testing three times per year (Fall, Winter, and Spring). The assessment is used to track progress throughout the year in Reading and Math, and it is a computer based assessment.


Below is our MAP schedule for Fall:



9/13 MAP Reading 8:35 a.m.

9/18 MAP Math 8:35 a.m.


Odds and Ends

Student Passwords

Your child received their passwords sheet today. The sheet should stay in their binder at all times. I sent home a GREEN copy for you to reference at home.



We will be using Google Drive and Edmodo regularly, and both require passwords. Additionally, the sheet has the usernames and logins for online textbooks, Compass Learning, and other school resources. Many of the logins are not yet active; please review their passwords sheet and the activation dates.

Room 20 Website and Homework WIki

Please visit the class website for resources for you and your child. The link below will take you to the website, which includes a link to our Homework wiki (you need your child's username and password). The homework wiki is a great resource; however your child's planner will always be the most accurate and updated reflection of homework.

If you have trouble accessing the wiki or website, please ask your child for assistance.
