NWEA Assessment information for Families
Please see the attached district letter regarding the NWEA-MAP (Measurement of Academic Progress) assessment that all K-5 students will need to take beginning Monday, September 28th. The NWEA- MAP assessment is an online assessment, and this assessment fulfills various requirements required by the state each year. This test is NOT TO BE taken before the teacher instructs.
This year, we will begin the fall assessment season by taking the NWEA-MAP assessment remotely while at home.
Your child will be taking one of the two following assessments
(Your teacher will send you one of the two helpful documents)
Please let us know if you have any questions at all. We realize that not all of our families have laptops yet, and we also understand that there have been challenges with technology. We will work through everything together to make this a successful fall testing experience.

Morley Candy Fundraiser
Unfortunately, as of right now, PTO will not be able to hold many of the events that they did last year. I can tell you that we had already begun some of the planning work over the summer. The goal was to give our Clinton Valley students some of the opportunities that other schools have, and just because we are in shutdown mode with not being able to host the many events that we had, doesn't mean we can't find other ways to make things happen for our students.
This year we found another way to raise funds for our kids, and it sounds like a pretty great way to raise funds. Dan Morley from Morley Candy came in a couple of weeks ago to go over this new touchless fundraiser. We are asking our families to participate in selling Otis Spunkmeyer and Winter Wishes (Morley Candy). I have included the Fundraiser letter below. Please click on the image, and it will open it up to a PDF. Once it opens into a PDF, the clickable links will work. Please register and share the fundraisers with five or more supports. Everyone who sells five or more items will receive a candy bar with either $1, $5, or $10 attached. There is a video embedded in the letter that goes over how the fundraiser work. Please review it, and let's get excited about what this fundraiser can do.
