MAP Testing Continues Through January

Students began taking MAP tests this week and will continue through January 25th. The Fall MAP assessment will provide a good opportunity to reveal whether or not students have mastered new content and improved on their goal score, therefore showing progress. Teachers and administration use MAP scores to better program and provide interventions which help students achieve greater academic success. We're looking forward to analyzing results in greater depth during the January 30th inservice. Thanks for supporting our efforts by providing a good night's rest the evening before the test and a healthy breakfast the morning of.


If you are interested in knowing more about MAP testing, please don't hesitate to call our office. We'd be happy to explain more about this new to Souderton assessment program.

Indian Valley Middle School offers Science Night for Students in K, 1, and 2

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

On January 25th, Indian Valley Middle School will be hosting a science night for children from Pre-K - 2nd grade. Indian Valley’s SAVE Club wants to share their love of science with your children. Their hope is to stimulate a love of science in them as well. Each child will rotate through 6 activities. The activities range from making slime to elephant toothpaste to walking rainbows. Every activity is a fun hands-on activity!


The event will run from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at Indian Valley Middle. There is no cost for this. We truly just want your child to love science!!!


Please go to this link https://goo.gl/forms/I6xGsn7rUaIckPsF2 and sign your child up. This is not just for Souderton students so feel free to ask family and friends.

KINDNESS

We've been talking a lot about being kind at our school. About if we put kindness at the very center of all that we do and say we'll create a school we want to come to every day. It's not magic, and we're in charge...everyone is.
