Family Literacy Night
We want to thank everyone who came out to our Family Reading Night (PreK-2nd grade) event. It was a fun filled night of family reading activities. We hope everyone enjoyed and learned something new from the sessions that were presented yesterday.

MAP TESTING STARTS AFTER THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAYS
After Thanksgiving break, your child will take an assessment called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). We give the MAP test three times a year (August, December and May) for reading and mathematics.

MAP is unique in that they are adaptive tests your child takes on the computer to help monitor each student’s academic growth over time. Following this testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s current instructional level and progress made since the beginning of this school year.

Be sure that your child is well rested and eats a good breakfast so he or she is ready to do their very best on MAP. If you have any questions about MAP test, please ask your child’s instructor or contact the office.

READING: A DAILY HABIT
If reading is a habit you would like your child to get into, there are a number of ways to help cultivate it. One way is to try and cut back on TV consumption and set aside the time saved for family reading activities. For example, you could set aside a time where all family members can read together such as after dinner or before bed time.

Have a great Thanksgiving Holiday!

DISSMISALL TIME REMINDERS

It is getting dark earlier, so please be sure to pick up your child on time when school ends. Be sure that your child is dressed appropriately (i.e. coat, hat, gloves, scarf, etc.) every day so he or she is fully prepared to go outside.
