During the 2nd or 3rd week of May, your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress™ (MAP). We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of Reading, Language Arts and Math. Your child will take the tests on a computer. The tests will be administered in short sections over the course of three days.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth.
Each school year, students take the tests in the fall and spring. Following each testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth.
We are truly excited to begin a new era that focuses on every child’s individual growth and achievement. Partnering to help all students learn, parents and teachers can have a profound positive effect on the lives of our children.
We hope everyone is enjoying their spring break. We just wanted to give you a few quick reminders.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer. As the school year gets closer to starting, we hope you and your student are starting to get prepared. We have prepared a school wide school supply list.
