MAP Information

We will begin MAP testing on April 14th. A schedule was put in your mailboxes so everyone is aware of the dates. Also included are the SRI/FRA testing dates.

K, 1st, and 2nd will NOT have any schedule changes during our MAP testing dates! Grades 3-5 will adjust their AMP time and lunch as needed.

Please Congratulate Devon

Devon will be the new "DAYTIME" custodian at Pioneer Trail. This will allow him to see his wife and children more. We will certainly miss him. Please make sure to congratulate him on his new position.

Little Big Stuff!

  • Please look at your website and make sure it is up to date! Make sure your information and schedule reflect what is happening with your learners.
  • Remember to log your exercise activity in ActivTrax. Last day is March 31st!
  • Make sure you read the SRI book and sign off in the Library.

Infinite Campus

*Be sure to update your grades in Infinite Campus by Tuesday of each week. This allows the weekend for any catch up with grading and entry into IC. Remember, we can assess student progress through observation and discussion, in addition to projects and specific tasks/assessments.

Character Trait- Trustworthy

Health Screenings

It is that time of year again! We are excited to offer Health Screens to everyone that partakes in the JCPS Health Insurance. We offer the Health Screens as an added benefit to each of you. It is a great way to monitor your results from year to year, plus it puts money back in your pocketbook! By participating in the health screens you receive a $30 premium reduction each month! That totals $360 in savings a year!

The Health Screens will be held each day at the Dix Road Education Center on the following days:

March 22

March 23

March 24

March 30

To register please use the following link from CRMC


A couple of notes about the screens:

1. If you choose to go to your private physician, please use the attached form and have it faxed to UMR at the number given.

2. Cotenine test- This test will be offered again if you wish to earn 100 points for being Tobacco-free. If you go to your private physician, this test will need to be done at the screens. Everyone will be asked if they wish to have this test and everyone will have to respond yes or no. It is 100% optional.

3. InBody and Waist-to-Hip ratio will also be taken again. Please know that you will have to take shoes and socks off for the InBody assessment.

4. Please print the waivers that are to be completed and bring them with you. This will help to speed up the process.


Please make sure you touch base with your radar kids on a daily basis! I've heard that our kids are excited about the extra acknowledgement.
