The Star Gazer

For Shaw Families {5/2-5/6}

Well, our 3rd graders outdid themselves this week, working hard and persevering through the ACT Aspire. We could not have asked for our students to work any harder! However, the year is not over. Next week K-2 and 4-5 will have another opportunity to showcase their growth and learning with MAP testing. We love the MAP test because it gives us instant feedback on students growth, strengths and weaknesses. It is so important that students give this reading and math test their best efforts! You will find the schedule in the dates below so you can help encourage your child before they start testing. Once all testing is complete, we will be having a huge testing celebration on May 12th. Students will have a chance to earn tickets during testing that they can cash in for fun activities! We will have inflatables, hair chalk, games, snacks and more... Students earn tickets for working hard and meeting their expected growth/grade level targets.


Teacher Appreciation Week

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Below you will find a graphic of each day's themes. We would love for students to join on certain days! This is always a good time to have students write a special thank you letter or draw their teacher a special picture. And don't forget about our amazing specialty teachers and support staff!
