From the Desk of Mrs. Adelman
Hi Warwick Bears!
Students in grades 3-6 will be taking the PSSAs during the month of May. All students will be completing the assessment online, using his/her/their district provided laptop.
Our Warwick Testing Dates:
English Language Arts: 3rd - 6th Grade ~ May 19th, May 20th, and Math 21st PM Session
Mathematics: 3rd - 6th Grade ~ May 24th ~ AM/PM Session
Science: 4th Grade ~ May 28th ~ Two sessions
Testing of Virtual Academy Students:
Testing is only available in-person and on-site, and each virtual student will be scheduled to take the test in his/her/their homeschool. We remain committed to adhering to the guidelines in our district’s Health and Safety Plan. All students, including virtual students, have been assigned a bus route. Your children may take their bus to and from school on testing days. If you prefer to drive your student to and from school for testing, and wish to pick them up in the middle of the day when they are finished, please let us know.
Parent Right to Opt-Out
Chapter 4 of Title 22 of the Pa. Code (22 Pa. Code 4.4) provides the right of parents/guardians to excuse their child from the state assessment if, upon inspection of the testing materials, they find the assessment to be in conflict with their religious beliefs. Please visit the CBSD Assessment Website for information about how to request to exclude a child from state testing. Parents requesting to opt-out their child from testing must submit a request to me.
An additional communication will be sent out early next week directly to 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade parents.
Please reach out directly to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any PSSA questions.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Mrs. Amy Adelman
Autism Awareness Month
April is Autism Awareness month! Due to COVID 19 restrictions and the CBSD Health and Safety Plan, we are limited on how to raise awareness this year. Typically, the AS team raises money for the Autism Cares Foundation. Autism Cares’ mission is to partner with individuals and families living on the autism spectrum and to provide integrative resources for life enrichment in a safe and respectful environment. The foundation is focused on improving the life experiences of children and young adults with autism today.
In the beginning of April, students will be provided an autism awareness ribbon coloring page to complete and hang outside their classroom! The puzzle pattern reflects the mystery and complexity of autism. The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of people and families living with this disorder. The brightness of the pieces’ signals hope- hope through research and increasing awareness in people like you! If you would like to make a donation to Autism Cares, please visit their website at https://autismcaresfoundation.org/. On behalf of the Warwick Elementary Autistic Support Team, we thank you for your constant support and for spreading awareness!
