The weekend weather was a reminder of the damp, chilly days autumn in Michigan is known for.
As the weather gets cooler, our LOST & FOUND grows with sweatshirts, jackets and other outwear accessories. If your child is missing a sweatshirt remind them to search in this order:
- Bottom of locker
- Lost and Found (located on tables across from the library).
This week’s highlight include MEAP testing for our children in grades 3, 4 and 5. For those of
you who follow education in the news, these scores are used to ranks schools statewide and also determine ongoing support via funding and/or sanctions.
The pressure on teachers is tremendous. While we work diligently to improve our instruction for all learners AND to prepare our students for these tests, we also believe it is critically important foster a climate that encourages all our learners do their best on all learning activities, including the MEAP tests.
If you child is in grades 3-5, suport them with a healthy snack each day and words of encouragement. We are proud of them and their focus on these grueling days.
Have a great week!
Each year, our students in grades 3, 4, and 5 take the state MEAP Tests. This test also takes place in grades 6-7 and grade 9. All MEAP testing will take place on mandated days this year. The schedule is posted below.
Please avoid scheduling appointments on testing days. If your child leaves prior to finishing a test, the test will be invalidated and the test will have to be retaken on the mandated re-test days.
We would like to ask all parents to make sure your child gets plenty of rest and a healthy breakfast. We encourage each child to put forth their best effort on this test. The information we receive helps us to re-adjust our instruction and it also is used to calculate a grade for our overall school performance in academics.
