Mickle Back to School Night (Thursday, 9/22/22)
- Please refer to the schedule below based on your child’s grade-level. Classroom presentations will be held in your child’s classroom. During the Special Areas, Related Services, and School Community Tables session, you may choose to visit your child’s Special Areas, Speech & Language, and Basic Skills teachers, as well as other staff such as the Child Study Team members, school nurse, and school counselor. These staff members will be available in their classrooms/offices. During the homeroom classroom presentations, 5th and 6th grade homeroom teachers will provide parents with a rotation schedule so you are able to meet each of your child’s teachers.
- Thursday's (9/22) Mickle Back to School Night Schedule
Start Strong is a state required assessment administered to students in grades 4-10 for ELA, grades 4-8 and specific high school courses in Mathematics, and grades 6, 8, and 12 for Science. Unlike state assessments in the Spring, Start Strong is intended to be a brief assessment with one unit for each subject-area. Mickle students in grades 4 and 5 will take one assessment per day, and students in grade 6 will take ELA on one day and Math and Science together on a second day. Each assessment will take approximately 45-60 minutes.
Students in grades 4-6 will complete their Start Strong units on Tuesday (9/20) and Wednesday (9/21).
