A teacher developed this chart to enable her students to better understand what a storyteller's voice should do. This type of chart is helpful for all students.
Teachers write learning objectives so students know what they are learning and why they are learning it.
Hand Sanitizer Stations
When students transition from recess to the cafeteria, they can wash their hands in the bathroom or use one of our two automatic hand sanitizer stations.
Dear Parents/Guardians of our 2nd and 3rd graders:
Starting the week of October 19th, all 2nd and 3rd graders will be taking the CogAT test. (This test is given to all 2nd and 3rd graders in the Hillsboro School District.) This test measures a child’s reasoning abilities for verbal, nonverbal and quantitative reasoning.
The goal of the CogAT exam is to assess the child’s reasoning abilities. This cognitive assessment test is also one of the tests used to help determine Talented and Gifted eligibility. Students with a score at or above the 97th percentile will be further evaluated.
If you would like to know the results of your child’s test, please contact the principal, School Counselor or your child’s teacher to arrange an appointment. Parents whose children are identified for TAG services will be notified.
Mrs. L. Pfister, School Counselor
Talented & Gifted Coordinator
