MAP Testing

All students in fifth grade will take the MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) test this week- Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. These tests are given in reading, language arts, and math. 
Please speak with your child about the test experience. It is important that students approach the test with confidence. Parents can help in the following ways:
  • Make sure that your child is well rested and ready to do his/her best work. Try not to schedule many activities after school.
  • Please ensure that your child eats a wholesome, nutritious breakfast each day.
  • See that your child arrives at school on time and relaxed.
  • Comfort counts. Have your child dress in comfortable clothes. 
  • Encourage your child to do the best work possible and to have a positive attitude.
Students have received rigorous instruction throughout the year. Through classroom assessments, I know the majority of students have been proficient in learning the academic content of the standards at grade level. 

They're ready to celebrate growth!
