CAASP CORNER!

Are you looking for ways to help prepare your child for the State Testing (CAASP) in the Spring? In the CAASP Corner, we'll share ideas to help get them ready with the technology skills needed to do their best on the test!


Here's this week's skill (let's start with the basics!):


HERE'S MORE PRACTICE FOR HOW TO USE THE MOUSE (Mousercize, if you will) ;) : Click this link for a new game to make sure your child knows how to properly use the mouse:

Also, here's a link to the practice test! It'd be great for you to sit with your child and take the practice test together so you can both see what you can do to better prepare for it: http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html

STATE TESTING (CAASP) WILL OCCUR APRIL 18-29. THE SCHEDULE WILL COME LATER, BUT FOR NOW, KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE NO ONSITE CLASSES IN BYRON THOSE TWO WEEKS!

YEARBOOK NEWS from CHARMAINE

You get a FREE 2 page layout in the yearbook, and it will only appear in YOUR yearbook. Please talk to Charmaine if you would like details on how to do this.


We will be taking headshot photos for yearbook, for those students AND STAFF who missed the school pictures day, or had their make-up pictures done in the gym, or for those of you who just do not like the photos you took. These will be FREE for the yearbook. We will be taking these pictures every day for a week, so you do not have to come out for an extra trip. (Megan, can we send out an email to staff also so they can plan to take photos).


We would prefer to have all the pictures with the same background, so it gives a nice, professional look.


The following dates will be available to come take photos (RAIN CANCELS)

Monday Feb. 8th 9:45 am - 11:45 am and 4:00 - 4:30 pm

Tuesday Feb. 9th - 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Wednesday Feb. 10th - 12:15 - 1:30 pm and 4:00 - 4:30 pm

Thursday Feb. 11th - 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

NO SCHOOL FRIDAY FEB. 12th.

Friday Feb. 19th 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


If it rains on any day, then we will move it to the following week with the same times.


Also, if you have pictures of your kids attending a school function, or playing at the school, or a picture with their teacher, feel free to email it to Charmaine for a possible entry into the yearbook. Sooner rather than later will give you a better chance of getting it into the book.
