This Week

MAP Growth Testing
We will be taking our second MAP Growth assessment of the year. As you recall we took the first assessment in the early fall. This assessment is an important tool as we seek to continue to improve education practice and learning opportunity. Data-driven instruction is the most highly effective means of ensuring that all students are growing. Please note that this round of MAP testing will take place during regularly scheduled class time, but during different classes than the fall.


Spring Festival

Spring Festival Vacation
January 25th will be the last day of school before the Spring Festival. I trust that you will have a good and safe couple of weeks with family and friends. We look forward to seeing you again after the holiday.
