When-to-keep-Your-child-Home-from-School-English

While we are in the midst of cold/flu season, we wanted to share with you helpful guidelines for parents to know when they should keep their children home from school. We hope this helps communicate our expectations to parents and alleviate some frustrations with children coming to school ill. Not only are these guidelines for when parents should keep their children home, but also for when we should send students home.

NWEA/MAP Assessments Window, January 8 – February 2, 2018

 

January 8, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians:

During the weeks of January 8 – February 2, 2018 your child will take the NWEA/ MAP.  This is our fourth year that we have used this test. The results of this test are / and will be used to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year. Each test will take approximately 40 to 60 minutes to complete and will be administered on different days (Please see teacher blogs for testing schedules).  Measurements of Academic Progress (MAP®) tests are unique in that they adapt to your child’s appropriate level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward school.

The MAP® test is administered three times a year; fall, winter and spring.  For more information on resources for parents, download the Parent Toolkit at www.nwea.org

Please talk to your child to take her/his time and do his/her best. On the NWEA/MAP  students will be tested on the following subjects:

  • Kindergarten 1st Grade and 2nd grade students are tested in Math and Reading
  • 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students are tested in Math, Reading, Language, Science

 

Please remind your child of the following test-taking tips.

Before the Test:

*Develop a positive attitude. Tell yourself, “I will do my best on this test.”

*Get a good night’s sleep the night before the test.

*Get up early enough to avoid rushing to get to school on time.

*Eat a healthy breakfast.

During the Test:

*Relax and Stay calm.

*Listen carefully to the directions the teacher gives.

*Ask questions if you do not understand what to do.

*Read each question carefully. Find the key words. Try to figure out what the question is really asking.

*Read the entire question and look at ALL the answer choices before you make your answer choice.

*Use strategies you learned in class to figure out the answer.

*Take your time!

Please encourage and motivate your child by letting him/her know that the formula for success is: taking your time and doing your best.
