🚙🚗 PARKING ON HENDERSON  - As we await direction from the city, we request that all parents who drop-off or pick up their daughter using the "walker" entrance/option on Henderson park  Mission or WEST of the center doors on Henderson in the direction of the Tennis courts. This will help alleviate traffic issues and create a smoother flow.  See diagram below.


🙋🏽‍♀️💯ATTENDANCE & GRADES - Teachers will be sending out updates for turning in work, grading and attendance reminders. Conferences will be scheduled with families who need support with attendance and turning in assignments to create a plan for the new semester.

THE MAP ASSESSMENT

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

What do I need to know about the MAP test?

The MAP assessment is norm-referenced - it gives us both an absolute score as well as a percentile that compares the scores of our students to scores of students across the nation.

the MAP assessment is adaptive - every student takes a different test based on their answers in the moment. If they get questions right, it takes them to more challenging questions and if they get questions wrong it takes them to easier questions.

it is likely that your students will feel frustrated if/when the questions become more difficult. Let them know when they get to challenging questions, or content they've never learned before, it a GOOD thing. It means they are going BEYOND their grade level. It is ok not to have all the answers to these questions, just tell them to try their best.

It is imperative that the students take this test INDEPENDENTLY to be able to track growth and to see where teachers should make adjustments to your child's specific learning needs. If your child will be taking this assessment from home, please ensure your child has a quiet, distraction-free environment and that parents ONLY support for troubleshooting login and device connectivity. Remember that students may come to the campus to test for the day, if needed. 

Please see your grade level's Remind for updates for your child's MAP assessment dates and important information to prepare for your assessments.
