Greeting Shaw Montessori Community,


Another week of testing is behind us! Next week we head into our 4th and final week. Please review the schedules provided here to ensure that your child is here for the administration of their test. During the last week of April, we will be offering makeup tests for those who may have missed any part of their testing session.


On Monday, you will receive a packet of raffle tickets for our Talent Show, Enchilada Dinner, Basket Raffle event to be held on Friday, May 13th at 6:00. If you wish to purchase the tickets, please fill out the top portion with your name and phone number and return this portion in the envelope with the payment of $10.00 or a dollar per ticket. Keep the bottom portion of the ticket as you will need it for proof. Return the payment and completed tickets to the school office or your child’s teacher. You do not need to be present to win. This is a much-loved event in our community where our children really do make the night shine with their talents! We will hold additional ticket sales before and after-school in the event you wish to purchase more. Tickets will also be available up until the event in the school office. See the incredible basket themes below.


Wednesday, April 20th please plan to attend our Site Council meeting at 5:30 followed by PTA at 6:00. Childcare will be available in the gymnasium and pizza will be provided at the start of our PTA meeting. During our Site Council meeting Ms. Shaily and Ms. Carwitz will present our Summer Homework plans. We look forward to seeing you there.


Monday, April 18th is the last day that you can donate tax credit for the 2021/2022 tax year. Should you wish to donate, you may do so here: https://phxschools.org/district/about/tax-credit/ Our staff, students and community thank you for your generosity.


Wishing you the very best,

Principal Engdall

Spring State Testing


Every April, our 3rd to 8th grade students are required to take the state assessments. This year's assessments will be AzSCI (Science) for 5th and 8th grade students only and AASA (Writing, Reading, and Math) for all 3rd to 8th grade students. These standardized tests provide a snapshot of how students place on grade level standards. For information about the tests, including access to the online sample tests please click the following link: https://www.azed.gov/assessment/aasa


The testing calendar has been provided in this issue of SSS. Your child's teacher will also be reaching out to you prior to testing. To prepare for testing, we recommend students get a good night's rest, have a healthy breakfast, as well as bring headphones, snacks, and water. Please reach out to Jennifer Collier jennifer.collier@phxschools.org or your child's teacher with any questions you may have.


Important note: students must submit the test on the same day they start the test. Please do not plan doctor's appointments or early pick-ups on the day of your child's scheduled test.
