Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) Winter testing for 5th Graders begins this week. The students will be tested in Reading Language Arts, Math, and Science.
MAP testing is important because it is an indicator of students' progress and what level they are at comparing to 5th grade skills. Therefore, it is important for students not to be absent during MAP testing. Please schedule appointments after the school day if possible.
Please encourage your child to do the best they can on these tests and make sure the students get plenty of sleep every night along with a good breakfast each morning. Thank you for your support.
November Character Awards Assembly will be on November 29 at 9:15 am to recognize Good Citizens as well as Six Pillars Character of Respect. Announcements will be sent home with those receiving the honor on Monday.
CLASSROOM DEBATE EVENT
We are starting our Debate Project this week. Each team will be given a topic to research and find evidence to support their point of view. Teams will then go against each other and present their case. The rest of the class will vote for the team with the best argument. It’s going to fun arguing with each other.
