NWEA & M-Step Testing

We have officially completed the NWEA testing. I'm waiting for the "window to close" and to see the District Mean on reports. As soon as the reports are complete, I will send them home to you. I will not re-print them at the end of the year for Report Cards. This can give us a snapshot of where they are currently, as well as any items that we can work on during these last weeks of school.

M-Step is complete for 3rd graders this week. (This includes Make-Ups.) Those reports will be given to you as soon as we see the results. I have no date on that. Stay tuned.

Several items:

- The CLASSROOM PLACEMENT letter from the office is coming home on Wednesday of this week. Please read through it carefully. If you feel the need to make a request for your child based on your CHILD'S LEARNING NEEDS. The date to return the letter is Friday, June 3, 2016. Please honor that deadline.

- GUM: While our students have had the opportunity to chew gum during the school day, it has become a problem in several areas. Therefore, I am suspending that privilege for the remainder of the year. Please remind your child to keep the gum at home.
