High Ability (FOCUS) Screening
Parents: Noblesville Schools relies on NWEA scores to identify students who achieve at exceptional levels for High Ability (FOCUS) instruction. To identify students with the potential for high achievement that is not reflected in NWEA scores, all students in kindergarten and second grade who are not already identified as High Ability in both math and English language arts will take an online screener called the Cognitive Abilities Test, or CogAT. Students who meet the benchmark on the screener will later take the remaining portions of the CogAT. All fifth graders who are not already identified as High Ability in both math and English language arts and who meet the benchmark will take the full CogAT without first taking the screener.
If you have questions about high ability testing and instruction, go to www.noblesvilleschools.org and click on Academics and then on High Ability. Questions may also be directed to the principal.

- We will go outside as long as it “feels” 10 degrees or above.
- When snow is on the ground, students must have snow boots and snow pants to play in the snow.
- When snow is on the ground, if students are not wearing boots and snow pants, they can play on the blacktop.
- Temperatures do fluctuate throughout the day. Teachers are mindful of our guidelines and they keep a close eye on the weather. It is possible that one grade has recess and another does not - it all depends on the weather at recess time.
Panorama Student Survey
Panorama Student Survey
Noblesville Schools is committed to providing a great school experience for all students. To help achieve this we will use a platform called Panorama to survey students in grades 3-5 during the dates of February 28 - March 11, 2022. The Panorama survey seeks to gather input on topics like school climate and culture, emotion regulation, self-management, social awareness and belonging. When students feel connected to their school environment, they are more engaged and increasingly successful in both academic and social achievements. More information on the survey can be found here.
Although the survey is not mandatory, student perceptions will provide valuable insights for future planning, support and programming. Results will be used to determine needs based on trends for our school.
If you wish for your student to opt-out, you can submit an opt-out form. The survey is voluntary and students are welcome to choose an alternate activity (read, homework, etc.) at the time the survey is given.
If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact our district counseling coordinator, Dana Nelson at (317) 773- 3171 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support of this important opportunity to best serve students and our school community.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
We want to extend a special thanks to all of our volunteers! In January and February alone, we had PTO volunteers organize and donate snacks for monthly munchies twice, schedule and help at three different enrichment programs, organize and execute a week long book fair, distribute prizes and coupons for our Read Like a Hawk participants, coordinate classroom Valentine’s Day parties, begin preparations for our spring flower sale, fifth grade party, and teacher appreciation week later this semester, set up two spirit events, and work toward creating an all new and exciting event detailed below. We could not do any of these things without the help of our amazing volunteers, so thanks for all you do to keep things running behind the scenes!
