Happy New Year!
As you may be aware, we have some capital improvement projects occurring at Washington this year. Including but not limited to some heating/cooling, safety, and accessibility projects are the main focus areas. With that being said, there will be some improvements within classrooms and library. Over break, our ground level hallway floor and library floor were prepped for new flooring, which may not be installed until spring break or summer. Some additional work is needed in the library, but hopefully by next week students can visit the library to check out some books!
As I learn more about the timing and scale of projects, I'll share more details.
Happy New Year!
Northside of library empty (subfloor needed to make entire library level)
Temporary library shelving during renovation (will be spread out by next week)
Ground Floor hallway w/ temp storage
Winter MAP Testing Kindergarten thru Fifth Grade
We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of reading and math. SK through 5th grade will use chromebooks in their classrooms to complete the MAP tests.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. Each school year, students at the elementary level take the tests during Sept/October, January and May. Following each testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth. If you have any questions about MAP testing, please contact your child(ren)’s teacher.
Schedule for Winter MAP Testing @ Washington:
Week of January 6th Winter MAP – Reading SK-5th
Week of January 13th Winter MAP – Math SK-5th
Week of January 21st Winter MAP – Makeups SK-5th
We practiced a fire drill at Washington yesterday. Staff and students did an excellent job leaving the school building. I wanted to make you aware incase your student came home last night and talked about it.
Happy New Year! Please consider volunteering this year.
