Be sure to ask your students how they did on their winter MAP Growth Assessment!
Below is a picture of the MAP growth norm growth goals. Our students test in reading, math and science during the fall, winter and spring. The charts below show the "normal" expected growth of students at the same grade level and same time of year of students all over the country.

We want 100% attendance daily but if your child is sick please look over tips below:
February: When Is My Child Too Sick to Attend School?
Keep your child home if he or she has a temperature higher than 100 degrees even after taking medicine. Must be fever free fro 24 hours.
Keep your child home if he or she has the flu. Stomach or respiratory.
Keep your child home if he or she has pink eye.
Don’t let your child stay home unless he/she is truly sick.
Talk to your doctor or school nurse about when a sick child should come to school.
Most health care providers allow a child to attend with a cold, but not with a fever.
