Wolf Pup Weekly

Woodriver Issue #30 3/25/22


Hello Wolf Pup parents!

The weather is finally starting to get nice. The kids were so excited today when they

got to take off their coats, hats and gloves at recess. Each day will be a bit different

for the next couple of weeks, so please continue to send students with their gear.

Each day at 11:45, I will make an announcement letting students know what they

will need for gear at recess based on the weather. Please be prepared for students

to need snow pants (or even better, rain pants) and boots for a good long while. We

require snow pants and boots, not because it is cold, but because students will get

extremely wet during recess while the snow is melting. By wearing rain or snow

pants and boots, they can come inside, take off their wet gear and focus on learning.

Congratulations to our Wolf Pups who represented us at the district science fair. We

had 22 students that advanced to the district level and we hope to have those results

for everyone next week!

State Standardized Testing in April! Please mark your calendars:

Students in Grades 3-6 will participate in the statewide testing now called AK Star.

This online test is aligned with Alaska's standards and helps us assess how students are progressing in their learning. Testing covers English Language Arts and Mathematics. Also, only our 5th graders have an additional test in Science.

Testing is untimed and many students complete testing in the morning session. After the lunch/recess hour, students have more time to complete the test if they need it. Finally, you do have the parental right to refuse testing of your child and you can contact Mr. Guy, Principal, to discuss this option.

Grades 5 and 6 AK Star testing dates:

Tuesday, April 12 through Friday, April 15

(Tuesday and Wednesday are English Language Arts test sessions. Thursday and Friday are Math test sessions.)

Additional test for Grade 5 in Science: Monday, April 18

Grades 3 and 4 AK Star testing dates:

Tuesday April, 19 through Friday April, 22

(Tuesday and Wednesday are English Language Arts test sessions. Thursday and Friday are Math test sessions.)
