eLearning Day - MONDAY, MARCH 6!

Please remember that Monday is an eLearning day. This is NOT a day that students will be on Zoom. All assignments have been posted. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions.

Thank you!

We would like to say how incredibly proud we are of our students and families for a safe and efficient early dismissal on Friday! The safety of our students is our highest priority and we appreciate your understanding!

iREAD3 Reminders!

Please remember that the Indiana requires us to administer the IREAD3 to all third graders. Beginning last year, we also test our second graders. Any second grader that passes the test will not need to retake it in third grade.

We will begin our iREAD3 testing with current third graders that did not pass the test as second graders along with fourth and fifth graders that have not passed. We will test these students Tuesday, March 7-Friday, March 10.

During the week of Monday, March 13, we will test students in grade 2.

Our students and staff have worked very hard to ensure students are ready to rock the test and show proficiency on the standards. Please talk with your child about the importance of taking the test seriously. Also, please make sure your child's Chromebook is charged daily!

Student Led Conferences

Thank you to everyone that attended the conferences. Whether or not you attended, please fill out this survey to share your thoughts about the process!

Winter Weather and Recess Reminders

As the cold and snowy weather continues, please remember that we go out for recess unless the windchill is below 12 degrees. Students should be dressed for the weather to be able to be outside for 15-20 minutes.

Students will only be allowed to play in the snow if they have both snowboots and snowpants. Otherwise, they will remain on the blacktop and play there during snowy days.

If your child needs winter outerwear, please reach out to our counselor, Mrs. McFerson, 219-873-2117, ext. 6906, or email at vmcferson@mcas.k12.in.us.

Chromebook and Tablet Reminder

Please remember that while students are taking home their devices each night in case of inclement weather, they need to make sure they bring them charged and ready to go back each day to school. Remember, during inclement weather days, we will be holding zoom classes so students MUST log on to be counted present.
