STAR assessment

January 2018 Newsletter Message by Mr. O

  •  Principal’s Note

                 I would like to welcome everyone back from the winter break and hope that all were able to enjoy the time to relax and participate in some memorable activities with family and friends. The New Year brings a fresh start for our students and staff. We look forward to new challenges and learning opportunities.

                 I want to ask our families to be mindful of re-establishing the necessary routines to ensure that your students are in attendance and on-time each morning to get each school day off to a great start. In addition to morning routines, I also ask our families to continue to be mindful of early dismissal habits as well. Although there are times when an occasional early dismissal is necessary for an appointment or urgent family need, early dismissals should be minimal as this loss of instructional time can certainly affect a student’s performance. As always, I appreciate your support as our teachers and students strive to maximize their instructional time shared each day.

    January is when we conduct our mid-year assessments. The STAR 360 assessment will be administered to all students January 16-19th.  This assessment helps us to measure academic growth in reading and math throughout the year. This assessment is unique because it is untimed, taken on a computer, and adapts to be appropriate for each child's level of learning. As a result, each child has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing.   A report of your child’s performance on the STAR 360 will be included with your child’s second quarter Learning Profile and  sent home on January 26th.

    Again, I would like to remind parents to help your children make appropriate choices for school attire.  Students should come to school prepared to go outdoors generally only a temperature of 12 degrees or lower keeps us inside.  Once there is snow on the ground we do ask all students to wear boots and snow pants. Make sure your child is prepared.  In addition, please remember to label all clothing with your child’s name and encourage your child to visit the lost and found if they have misplaced any winter attire.

    We continue to strive to work in partnership with you to make learning a successful and rewarding experience. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or myself regarding concerns and or questions. On behalf of the staff, I would like to wish all of our families a healthy and prosperous New Year.

    -Mr. O’Connell
