Fall Week of Worship (this is just the beginning)
Each Week of Worship brings blessings and surprises to our students. This week we had Pastor Jarrod Songy on our campus, bringing us our message for each day. We heard how we are to love courageously as children loved by God. This year we will continue to focus on “My 12 People”. Each student is to privately choose 12 people to pray for and show the kindness God has given us. Let's see how God will bless!
MAP Testing for our 2nd Semester will begin next week.
Next week we will begin assessment testing. Assessment testing happens three times a year. The assessments are MAP tests, Measures of Academic Progress (MAP®). When taking these computerized adaptive tests, the difficulty of each question is based on how well a student answers all the previous questions. All students in Kindergarten through 8th grade will take the test. The results from this test will provide us with what the child knows and is ready to learn next. We will also be able to see how they are progressing from the first test in September. We will use this information to track each student's growth over the year. MAP tests the student's knowledge in Math, Science and Language arts to assist teachers in setting goals in learning.
Help your child do their best.
1. Get 8 hours of sleep
2. Eat a healthy breakfast
3. Get exercise
4. Drink a lot of water
5. Avoid sugar
Save-the-Date for our Raise Craze Fundraiser
A Fundraiser We Can Be Proud Of!
Raise Craze is an online platform enabling students to set up secure, custom websites where they request donations via email. During the fundraiser, students pay it forward by completing Acts of Kindness for others.
Here’s How It Works
REGISTER We’ll provide a link for you to register and create your child’s website.
ACTS OF KINDNESS Students select at least 3 ways to pay it forward.
ENTER EMAILS Students enter email addresses of friends and family.
Raise Craze will take it from there sending all emails, reminders, and thank you’s.
