Report Cards and NWEA Reports
NWEA Family Reports will also be sent home on Tuesday. NWEA is the universal screener that we give to students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
NWEA MAP Growth Reports
A summary of how your child is performing academically, as measured by the most recent NWEA MAP Growth test will be sent home with your child’s report card. MAP Growth scores help teachers check student performance and progress by measuring Achievement and Growth.
What do Achievement and Growth mean?
Achievement- How well your child has learned skills in a subject compared to similar students nationwide
Growth- A measure of your child’s personal progress over the year. This report will include your child’s progress from Fall 2020 to Fall 2021
· Kindergarten students will not have a growth score due to this being their first time testing
· Some 1st-8th grade students will not have a growth score due to testing outside the NWEA Fall testing window in 2020. The necessity for hybrid and remote learning schedules due to COVID-19 impacted the administration of NWEA last school year.
Walk A Thon Pledges Needed!! SEND MONEY TO HELP OUR SCHOOL - Monday- Wednesday
NOW... We need the pledges turned in to make this the best fundraiser EVER. If every family would contribute something (big or small) it would make a huge difference! If you did not collect pledges, you can send in a flat donation (ex: $25). We will happily take anything you are willing to donate.
WINNERS- Each grade level will have a winner for the student who walked the most laps and the student that raised the most money. Those winners should be announced on Friday, Oct. 29th at our morning assembly.
