I hope we are all well and enjoying this warm weather.

Also, make sure to complete their daily health screening before leaving the house and show us upon entering the building. If your child is feeling sick or showing symptoms, please keep them home and see a doctor.

Welcome back. We are all gearing up to have a remarkable December. Our scholars are working really hard these days and making progress. Parent-Teacher Conferences were well-attended, in spite of it being virtual. As we continue to work through returning to In-Person learning, children are receiving Social Emotional Learning in all their classes as well through MBK and GEMS.
This month we plan to celebrate "What are we grateful for." Our 8th graders are schedule to perform their annual Poetry Slam on Thursday, December 16th at 6:00 pm at the school. All parents attending must be vaccinated
Welcome back to in-person learning! We’ve spent the last two weeks reacclimating our students back into school and focusing on the social and emotional well-being of our scholars. We are entering our 3rd week of school and we’ll be administering 3 major assessments this week: the DRP, MAP Growth ELA and MAP Growth for Math. We know that students often develop anxiety when they hear the phrase “testing,” but we want to assure you and our scholars that the purpose of these assessments is to determine how we can best support our scholars moving forward.
The ability to read well is critical to our children’s success in school and beyond. On Monday, September 27th, we’ll be administering the Fall Degrees of Reading Power (DRP) assessment. The DRP is a test that assesses the reading level at which students can read and understand a text. The DRP will be given two more times this year, in January and again in May. We will be working with you as partners to ensure their continued growth and success as readers. After the administration of the assessment, you will receive a report of how your son/daughter scored and what you can do at home to support their reading progress.
On Wednesday, September 29th and Friday, October 1st, our schools will be taking the MAP Growth assessment in ELA and Math. This is a computerized-adaptive exam that provides questions based on how students are performing. You will also receive a detailed print-out that lets you know how your son/daughter scored.
What we need from you:
· We are asking that scholars bring in their school-issued laptops
· Please ensure that students get enough sleep the night before and eat breakfast the morning of
If you have any questions and/or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to the school.
