SUMMER PANTHER PRIDE

Thomas B. Chinn Elementary ---- June 2017

Last Week of Summer Learning Fun

We have thoroughly enjoyed having your children with us during the Summer School experience at Thomas B Chinn Elementary! We hope the kids have had numerous positive learning experiences, opportunities to enjoy time with their friends, and develop relationships with adults and peers.

There is always opportunity for improvement to enhance the experience for the kids. Please take the time to complete a brief survey on ways we can make the Summer School experience better for everyone involved using this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2017_SS_Parent_K-5 . The survey link will be open until July 7th.

Thanks for sharing your students with us this summer!!

Terra Nova & MAP Student Test Results

Hello! I am receiving many questions regarding the spring Terra Nova student results so I thought it would be helpful to share an update with all Chinn families. As you will remember, the Terra Nova was administered in April to students in first grade and second grade. Unfortunately, the Terra Nova scores were not released to Park Hill (at the district level or at the building level) prior to the end of the 2016-2017 school year. The Terra Nova scores have recently been released in digital format to our Park Hill Assessment and Evaluation Department at District Office, however, the individual student reports have not yet been released to Park Hill at the district level or at the building level. It is expected families will not receive these Terra Nova student score reports until August or even possibly September. Elementary students who received Terra Nova scores qualifying for additional testing in the Park Hill Gifted Program have been notified directly earlier this month

The MAP (Missouri Assessment Program) was administered to students in third grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade in April. Individual student MAP reports have also not yet been released and will be released to families in August or September. Elementary students who were in third grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade during the 2016-2017 school year and received MAP scores qualifying for additional testing for the Park Hill Gifted Program will be notified early this fall for additional testing. This additional testing will take place during the first semester of the 2017-2018 school year with placement in the Park Hill Gifted Program taking place in January, 2018 for students who qualify.

If you would like to learn more about the Park Hill Gifted Program and these qualifications for elementary students, please explore this link: https://www.parkhill.k12.mo.us/teaching_and_learning/gifted_programs/

If you have any additional questions, please let me know. I hope you are enjoying your summer!

Take care,

Mr. Heinerikson & Dr. Montalbano

Online residency verification

We are excited to announce that we will offer online verification for 2017-2018 school year registration. Beginning June 5, enrolled students’ guardians can log into the Parent Portal and begin student verification and residency online. They can verify student and guardian information, input health information, upload residency documents and sign technology forms, all at their convenience.

We will have kiosks set up in each building throughout the summer for parents who are not able to access the Parent Portal at home. School office staff and technology staff will be available to assist parents during the summer, registration and back-to-school nights. Please note that online verification is only for returning guardians and students. For now, new families continue to enroll as they have in the past.
