Message From the Principal

Dear Parents,


I am grateful to our parents for helping to support the mission of making our students Smart, Happy, and Connected.


Iowa Testing for 8th-grade students starts on Monday, October 22nd and the testing period goes through November 2nd. Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) are extremely important. They are one of the metrics used to place students in their high school courses. Your children are well prepared for the tests. Please help your child to make testing a successful experience by:

  1. Making sure your child's laptop is fully charged every night and that your child brings his or her laptop to school
  2. Feeding your child a good breakfast, prepared either at home or at school
  3. Getting your child to school each day, on time!


Parents, we need you to help us when you check out your child early for an appointment. As the year has progressed, we are seeing an uptick in parents checking out students early and not following the front office procedures. Students being checked out from the front office require:

  1. Signed note presented to the front office in the morning by the student
  2. Student to come to the front office at the time stated in the note, on their own accord (without being called from the classroom), and preferably between class periods
  3. Checkout prior to 3:30 pm - No checkouts permitted after 3:30 pm


Following the proper procedure for early checkout means instruction time is safeguarded. Call-ins to the classroom place a hardship on our front office staff and an encumbrance on the teacher. Note: During ITBS testing it will not be possible to make calls to the classroom or to check out your 8th grader while testing is in progress. If you are checking your child out at the end of the day, please schedule your child's pick up to coincide with the end of 7th period. Please reference the Bell Schedule here. The Bell Schedule is posted on our website, and we ask that you use it as a guide for scheduling your pick up.


I would like to thank our PTSA for always championing for our students. PTSA sponsored a 6th-grade field experience to Serenbe to see the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. A round of applause goes to PTSA Dance Chairs, Mrs. Kim Friedman and Mrs. Meghan Fox. The 7th Grade Fall Carnival was a huge success with over 150 carnival goers in attendance. I do believe this was a record turnout for the 7th grade. On Monday, October 22nd, PTSA is hosting a Student Principal Chat and Roundtable Discussion at 8 am in the Media Center. PTSA will also be kicking off Bus Driver Appreciation Week with a Continental Breakfast.


Thank you for your continued support!

THINGS TO KNOW

IOWA Testing - 10/22 to 10/26

The Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS or Iowa tests) will be given to 8th-grade students the week of October 22-26. The make-up window extends until November 2nd. Most students will test from 9:00 am until 11:30 am. Results from the ITBS are expected in November, in time for Student-Led Conference on November 15th.


The Iowa Assessment is a norm-referenced test (NRT) given to students in 8th grade. Scores from the NRT are used to compare the performance of Fulton’s students with the performance of students in a national sample who are:

  • in the same grade, and
  • who took the test at the same point in the school year.


Teachers and schools use the results for evaluation, decision-making, and instructional improvement. Scores on nationally-normed tests are one criterion used to determine placement for the Talented and Gifted program.


What can I do to help my child prepare for the Iowa Assessments?


  • Make sure your child attends school regularly and on time. Remember that tests reflect the overall achievement of your child. Time spent in learning situations increases the likelihood that he/she will do well on tests. Avoid scheduling doctor’s or dentist’s appointments during testing times.
  • Give your child encouragement. Praise him/her for the things done well throughout the year. A child who is afraid of failing is more likely to make a mistake.
  • Ensure that your child has a well-rounded diet. A healthy body leads to a healthy, active mind. Make sure the child has a good breakfast on testing days and every day.
  • Keep the lines of communication open between home and school. Parents and teachers should work together to benefit the child.
  • Make sure your child is well rested on school days. Children who are tired are less likely to pay attention in class or to handle the demands of class work and tests.
  • Try not to be overly anxious about test scores. Too much emphasis on test scores can be upsetting to children.
  • Don’t judge a child on the basis of a single test score. Test scores are NOT perfect measures of what a child can do. There are many other things that might influence a test score. For example, a child can be affected by the way he/she feels that day.
  • Follow normal routines. Interruptions of normal routines may affect your child’s performance.


IMPORTANT:


  • 8th-grade students should come prepared with their laptops fully charged. During the testing period, we encourage students to bring their charger in the event that they get a low battery. Please make sure to label your child's charger. Replacement chargers cost $40.
  • Please make sure that your student eats a good breakfast, gets plenty of sleep, and comes for testing.
  • Students who do not arrive on time for their testing block will be required to make up the testing.
  • If your child wears an adaptive device, such as glasses or hearing aids, be sure he/she remembers to bring it and wear it during all testing sessions.


NOTE: Parents will not be permitted down the halls during testing blocks. 8th- grade checkouts and call-ins will not be possible once testing has commenced.

Student PTSA Meeting October 22, 8-8:35, Media Center, (DONUTS WILL BE SERVED :))

Bus Driver Appreciation Week @ the Pointe

We will be figuring out who can work with a partner or individually, as well as looking at the various categories that we could enter. Space is limited. Top projects will be moving on to the competition. Please do not commit, if you cannot attend the competition on a Saturday.
