MAP Testing

It's time for Winter MAP testing. Learners in our class will complete this assessment during the following times:

Reading- Friday, January 15th from 10:15 AM- 12:15 PM

Math- Friday, January 22nd from 10:15 AM to 12:15 PM

Science- Friday, January 29th from 10:15 AM to 12:15 PM

Due to the NWEA MAP system, learners can only take the assessment during these windows when the educator is monitoring the website. We are providing you with these times now so you can make every effort to adjust your schedule as needed for your child to participate. If they have to miss any of these times we will schedule a grade level wide make up session, however these will have occur during similar times of day since teachers have to monitor the NWEA website during testing.

SEND US YOUR PICTURES! ¡MÁNDENOS SUS FOTOS!

We want to see your virtual learner in action! If you catch your learner working hard and happen to snap a picture, email it to your learner's teacher. :) We will be doing the same at school!


Queremos ver a su alumno en acción. Si descubre a su alumno trabajando duro y le toma una foto, envíela por correo electrónico al maestro de su alumno.
