In a little over a week, students will be taking the Map Test for the second time this school year. This test will be done just like before where they will take the reading test one week, and the math test the following week. Since this test is aligned to the Common Core State Standards, one way you can help your student prepare is by having them complete as many ScootPad practices as possible. As you know, students can work on ScootPad as many times as they want each day. Some students are already working on questions that pertain to the standards for grade 3 and above. This can only happen with daily practice. Please consider this as an option for helping your student prepare for the upcoming Map test.
On Tuesday, students will take home their Tuesday folder. In it will be a form from Highlights Magazine for a subscription to Puzzlemania. It looks like a cute magazine, but even if you are not interested in purchasing this for your child, please consider returning the permission slip to school with your signature. There are several items I may be able to get for our classroom if I get enough responses (yes or no) back. Your support with this will be greatly appreciated and will benefit my students for years to come! Thank you for your consideration!
P.S.: Check out the new page on our site. It has a link to the school's lunch and breakfast menus.
