Summer Program is Coming to EES
We will now offer a Summer Program at Elkmont elementary during the month of June! While this program will have an educational focus, it will be built around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning, and include weekly field trips to include canoeing, the zoo, and roller skating. For more information, visit the link below.
WE DO HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE!
Spring Assessments Start in APRIL
April is the month for our Spring Assessments required by our state and/or our district. While we understand that assessment scores are just one measure of a child's progress, we also know that these spring assessments are what will be used to determine the State Report Card Grade for our school.
Last year, Elkmont High School, as a K-12 school, scored a C for our overall grade. This year our goal is to score a B or higher. Our teachers have been working extremely hard this year to improve instruction in the classroom, monitor student progress, and provide interventions needed to hep students who are struggling. Our students have also been working very hard to set goals for learning and striving to meet those goals.
Students in grades 2-5 are setting goals for the upcoming Scantron and DIBELS tests. Our K-1 students are discuss "how to do your best" at school. I will be meeting with every student over the next couple of weeks to discuss their goals they have set for themselves.
Below you will find a Testing Schedule so you know when your child will be testing. Also, here are some tips for parents to help their child be prepared on the day of testing:
Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and eats a healthy breakfast
Many teachers report that students who don't do well on tests haven't gotten enough sleep, and haven't eaten breakfast on the morning of the test. Doing both of these things will ensure that your child is working at full capacity. As always, we will serve free breakfast in the morning.
Be on Time to School
When students come to school late on testing days, they are not allowed to enter the testing room and start testing. Therefore they must take the tests in a make-up setting. This can make testing more stressful for students who have to test in a different classroom with a different teacher.
Staying calm will help your child stay calm. If he/she gets nervous about the test or is likely to experience anxiety during the test, help him/her practice some relaxation techniques that she can try once she's taking the test (Narang, 2008).
