NED Show Yo-Yo's Sale Ends September 7th
Our school received this program at no cost because another school community has paid it forward to us. Now it’s our turn—you can help by purchasing a NED-messaged yo-yo and accessories. A yo-yo is both a mindset tool and a tangible reminder of NED’s message. While learning to yo, children will make mistakes, try again, and improve. Read more at bit.ly.why-yos.
Purchase a NED Yo-Yo today. A staff member will go around and sell between 8:30 am and 9:00 am. The sale will end on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.

Iowa Testing - 2nd Grade Only!
TESTING WINDOW: September 1 - September 3
About the Iowa Assessment
Schools administer the national Iowa Assessment to 2nd grade students to measure achievement in Reading, Language, and Mathematics. Testing will take approximately 100 minutes each day.
The test measures both basic skills and advanced skills so that teachers can learn more about each student’s academic strengths and potential learning gaps. The district also uses achievement scores on the Iowa Assessment as a part of the process for identification for the Gifted Education program.
2021 CogAT Testing for 1st, 2nd, 5th & 8th Grade
The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) is a multiple-choice assessment that measures the way students think. The CogAT helps our teachers determine the best ways to instruct students. The district also uses achievement scores on the CogAT as a part of the process for identification for the Gifted Education program.
In GCPS, students in grades 1, 2, 5, and 8 take this assessment, which consists of three sections— verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal. Each section takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
CogAT Testing (Cognitive Abilities Test) will be administered to 1st, 2nd, 5th & 8th-grade students, Tuesday, September 21, 2021, through Thursday, September 23, 2021.
