Map testing overflow parking

During MAP testing, we know that parking may be tricky. Our generous neighbors across the street, including Dog Tire Doggie Daycare and Journey Home, have graciously allowed us to use some of their parking spaces during MAP testing sessions. Please see the diagrams below to know which parking spots are available. Thank you for your attention and cooperation to this matter as we try and streamline our testing procedures.

Journals

Students record in a journal their understanding of the topic, concept, or lesson taught.


The teacher/parent reviews the entry to see if the student has gained an understanding of the topic, lesson, or concept that was taught. Did they achieve the learning target?


This can also serve as a source of notes for review for quizzes or exams. Students can also see their learning over time and are often amazed at all the concepts and new information they learned at the end of the semester or year.

December 1, 1955 - The birth of the modern American civil rights movement occurred as Rosa Parks was arrested in Montgomery, Alabama, for refusing to give up her seat to a white man and move to the back section of a municipal bus. Her arrest resulted in a year-long boycott of the city bus system by African Americans and led to legal actions ending racial segregation on municipal buses throughout the South.
