August 23, 2017 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Thank you for taking the time each week to review the Wednesday Envelope information, including the newsletter and attached flyers. It is our goal to keep you as informed as possible. Next week, from Tuesday, August 29 – Thursday, August 31, we will be conducting Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) baseline testing. We encourage students to get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and arrive on time as testing takes place in the mornings on these days. We use the results from this first round of testing to help set academic goals that meet your child’s needs, a critical element of providing the best possible educational program for your child. The results also serve as a basis for comparison with testing in January and toward the end of the year in the spring to measure growth. We appreciate all that you do to help your child maximize his or her learning opportunities each day. We welcome your input as we partner together on behalf of your child this year.

Have a wonderful week!

Lori Riti
Principal
