PLANNING FOR NEXT YEAR
Dear SHARK parents,
We are quickly coming to the end of our school year and school staff have begun planning for the 2015-2016 school year. One major piece of planning for the next school year is class placement. As we begin that process I would like to remind you of a few things. As a school we do not accept personal request for teachers. We are simply unable to accommodate those requests. However if you feel that there is specific information that you would like us to consider, please submit your information in writing via email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to consider your information as we finalize placement throughout the summer. Also if you know that your family is moving and you will NOT be with us for the 2015-16 school year please send an email to email@example.com and include any pertinent information in your email. Thank you and we look forward to another great year in 2015-16, enjoy a safe and happy summer. See you in the fall!

This is the first year the MAP test will be conducted online. Please make sure your child has a set of headphones or earbuds. If you will not be able to provide these please let your child’s classroom teacher know so arrangements can be made.

Please see the video below that will show you in more detail how to navigate the site to get to the practice tests.
We ask that you please help support your child by helping to make this a positive experience. Below are some ways that you can help:
- Make sure that your child has plenty of rest.
- Start each day with a healthy breakfast.
