MAP Testing

MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Testing for the winter begins on Wednesday, November 29th and runs through December 7th. Testing will be in Labs 109, 207, and 236. If you are regularly scheduled to use the labs during this time, please be aware that the labs will be occupied and you will need to make other plans.

December 1st--iLearnPulaski

Friday, December 1st is the day that our iLearnPulaski assignments need to be sent home with ALL students. Please send all 5 assignments (for Days 2-6) home with all students, even those who plan to access the website to complete their work. Students will be given folders marked specifically for iLearnPulaski assignment collection during their 3rd block classes. Please ask students to collect these assignments and keep them in their folder together so that they are prepared for an iLearnPulaski or NTI day. These folders also contain directions for accessing their Google Classroom accounts if they have plans to complete online.

These folders will be in your mailboxes by the end of the day on Thursday, November 30th. There will be extra folders in the mailroom and in the Guidance office if you need any.

Google Classroom--Stay Organized by Adding a Topic

You have the option to add a Topic for all items posted to your Stream in Google Classroom. If a topic has been attached to a posted item, teachers and students can sort by topic and see all posts under that title. Only one topic can be attached, so consider how your Google Classroom posts should be organized before you create them. You could organize them by assignment type (Exit Ticket, Unit Quiz, etc.), by Unit (Unit 1, Unit 2, etc), or even by Standard.
