Learning about each of our student’s learning is at the center of our work.  We observe children in and out of class and each of those observations informs our teachers.  In addition, we gather more formal data through different tools.  This week our students in grades 3 to 5 are taking the MAP (Measure for Academic Progress) test in literacy and math areas.  To read more about MAP, please follow this link.

I would also like to invite you to spend some time with your children to go over our elementary handbook and the expectations around use of devices.  You can find the handbook at the following link. You will receive a form to complete acknowledging understanding, and we ask that you bring to Back to School Night on September 20.

Dress Code - We appreciate parents supporting students to abide by the school dress code.  They demonstrate respectful behavior by doing so, and you can encourage them to be responsible at home by getting their clothes ready for the next day independently.
