Starting Monday, September 23rd and continuing through Friday, September 27th, students will be taking the CUSD iReady assessment.  An adaptive, online measure of reading and math, results are used by teachers to futher taylor instruction for each student and will be shared with families during Conference Week (October 7-11).

As we believe that all of our students are all of our students, our site will have a schoolwide testing schedule again this year.  Portions of every period will be removed to create a block of time where all staff proctors the assessment to all students in specific locations.  Sixth graders will take the assessement with their second period teachers, while upper grade students will take the asssessment with their third period teachers.

The overall reading score is broken down into several components, including phonemic awareness, phonics, high-frequency words, vocabulary, comprehension (literature), and comprehension (informational).

Similarly, the overall math score is broken down into components, including numbers and operation, algebraic thinking, meausrement and data, and geometry.

It is important to remember that iReady is a form of assessment, not the form of assessment.  Presentations, projects, labs, expressive writing, and the like are additional ways students demonstrate their learning and growth.

An opportunity to meet teachers with whom you and your children will form strong bonds this year, we hope to see hundreds of faces on Thursday, September 12th.  As the evening is geared for parents, we ask that students remain home unless there is a pressing issue.

Students received forms Wednesday after school that detail the evening’s schedule.  Please ask your child for that personalized schedule.  Starting promptly at 6:00 in your child's first period class, there will be a schoolwide video sharing general information and school goals.

In anticipation of the event, please complete and download the Seesaw Family App.  We will be exploring the best ways to utilize this tool at middle school over the coming months.  Teachers will provide a code that is unique to their class that evening.

Finally, so that we may better prepare for the event itself, please fill out the Google Form letting us know how many adults will attend and in what grade/s your child or children are enrolled.

**IMPORTANT CHANGE REGARDING STUDENT ID CARDS**

Our middle school student ID cards will have new information on the back. 

A law that went into effect in July requires that we print the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline on student ID cards for seventh- through 12th-graders in public, private and charter schools.

That number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

The law also says that student IDs may have information on the Crisis Text Line — which can be reached by texting HOME to 741741 — as well as local suicide prevention resources.

Lights.  Camera.  Action.  We have been preparing for the opening of school for several weeks.  The stage is set.  The curtain has opened.  Along with teachers and staff, WEB leaders will be welcoming everyone at a variety of entrance points.

There is much to accomplish this year, namely learning in a caring, respsonsible, and safe environment.  Your children are encouraged to strike up new friendships, be open to exploring new content, and recommit to doing their best this year.  Please communicate with your children and our teachers, as we want there to be dialogue.

In an effort to foster a smooth transition back to school, please be advised of the following:

  • With the new bus stop off Pollard, please plan accordingly.  Remember school starts at 8:35.
  • Please be cautious of pedestrians, bicyclists, and each other.
  • Uncollected schedules will be available in the cafeteria starting at 7:30 in the morning.
  • Establish a pick up time and location with your child over breakfast.
