Congratulations to our Trimester 1 & 2 PAWS Winners!

On February 21st, our first Trimester PAWS Winners had the opportunity to read to Canine Good Citizens! Therapy dogs were at Meadowview from the Pet Partners Read with Me group. ALL students who earned PAWS during the 1st Trimester and half of the 2nd Trimester were eligible for the drawing! Students earn PAWS for following Meadowview's three school-wide expectations: Being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe.

We will have another set of Trimester PAWS winners read to the therapy dogs in May. These winners will be drawn from the other half of Trimester 2 and all of Trimester 3 PAWS Winners! Best of luck to all of our PAWS Winners!

Meadowview teachers made a donation to the Read with Me group on behalf of the students!

Congratulations to our February Birthday Celebrants!

Illinois Assessment of Readiness

Students in Grades 3-6 will be taking the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) sometime in April. The window is from April 7th to April 26th; we are working on a schedule that will have the least impact on students' schedules. The IAR replaces the PARCC test from last year. While the IAR is a new name, the content is almost exactly the same as the PARCC. The IAR assesses students' knowledge of the Illinois State Standards in Math and English Language Arts. This is an online test and will be conducted in students' regular classrooms. Our goal is for classroom teachers, English language teachers, and learning behavior specialists to collaborate and develop testing schedules that have the least interruptions to student learning and thus, the smallest impact on instruction as possible. Read more in my letter below.
