Movie Night

Movie Night was a hit! Thank you again to all of you who volunteered your time! We had a gym FULL of families to watch the movie Stuart Little! What a great time it was!

Our Math Bowl team won first place for our division at Boone Grove on Saturday! Great Job Math Bowl team! Thank you to Natalie! She has a streak of three first place titles, three years running! Jane Ball was first place as well in their division! Awesome job all around.

ISTEP

ISTEP Practice Tests can be utilized up until we begin ISTEP (Wednesday). The purpose of the practice tests is to expose students to the format of the ISTEP test. Practice tests must remain in the classroom and cannot be sent home.


As a reminder:

All personnel who will be in contact with testing items (booklets, test tickets, etc.) MUST:


1. Watch the following video on Testing Security and Integrity:

The video is only 14 minutes long.


2. Be provided with a copy of Chapter 10 of the 2015-16 Indiana Assessment Program Manual (link below) and asked to read appropriate sections for their role in testing.

3. Sign and submit the Indiana Testing Security and Integrity Agreement for 2015-16.


We have already completed the above items, but I am attaching these as a reminder, or if you want to refer to the manual.


In addition, the DOE has provided an additional video with ISTEP updates.
