All Staff: MCA Reminders- PLEASE READ!!!!

Over the next 4 weeks, students in grades 3-5 will be taking the MCA assessments. Next week, Tuesday and Wednesday, all 3-5th graders in both buildings will be taking a paper-pencil Reading assessment in their classrooms. Teachers, Staff and Students can support the students who are testing by:

  • Maintaining silence in the hallways (and being especially considerate of locker noise around the classrooms where testing is occurring).
  • Walking all students out to recess through the EAST doors (by the TEACHER'S LOUNGE). Please do not walk your class past the 4th/5th grade rooms, as they will be testing!
  • Encouraging each other. Testing can be stressful on both kids and staff! Reach out to your peeps in Grades 3-5 with an extra dose of kindness and support over the next few weeks!

Want to add something to this staff update?

The staff update will typically come out on via email on Thursday or Friday each week. If you have an item that you would like to include in this bulletin, please email it to Tina by Wednesday noon, and we’ll do our best to add it to the bulletin. Let’s work together to use this bulletin as our primary method for making all-school announcements, and hopefully by distributing information in one central way, we can decrease the number of emails that we all receive.
