Principal Tornopsky's News

We are all an essential piece!

Principal's Point of View

How can parents help their students be successful? One of the best ways is to discuss their data with them. WE use many types of formative and summative assessments. Students take classroom tests, i-Ready Diagnostics, and District Diagnostics, to name a few. When you come in for a conference with your students' teacher, they discuss data as part of the meeting. Parents have recently been given access to an online platform, Unify, where students in grades 2-8 take assessments that utilize a bubble sheet as an answer sheet or they take them directly on line. If they utilize a bubble sheet then we scan the answer sheets and the data will digitally populate. When they take the assessment on line the data is available fairly quickly as well. Please utilize the PowerPoint below and follow the directions to view classroom assessments, Diagnostic and FSA data. (The i-Ready cannot be found on this site, but only through i-Ready.)

For students in grades 3-8, this is where you will be able to see the FSA scores early in the summer as quickly as they are released. Parents can go on the website now and see all the past FSA scores and you will see the Winter diagnostics that students in grades 3-8, have just recently taken.

IB PYP Update

This month the IB Learner Profile for February is, Risk-Taker. A Risk-Taker is someone who approaches uncertainty with forethought and determination. someone who can work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies.

A Risk-Taker is resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change. Ask your student what makes them a Risk-Taker?
