Illinois Assessment of Readiness
Students in grades 3-5 will take the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) beginning this week. The testing dates are Tuesday 4/9 through Friday 4/12, and Wed. 4/17. Students will take one assessment per day for a total of 5 sessions over 5 days (2 ELA, 3 Math). Please avoid scheduling appointments on these dates if possible. Once a student begins a test session, they must complete it. In general, grades 4 & 5 will test in the AM, grade 3 in the PM. Students will need fully charged Chromebooks at school each day to take the tests.
5th grade students will also take the Illinois Science Assessment (ISA) on 4/18. This is one test session.
Please do not send students to school if they are ill. There are make-up tests for absent students.

Parent Input Forms 2019-20
Each spring staff begin the process of creating recommended class placements for the following school year. We know parents play an important role in helping us have a complete picture of each child's needs. If your child has a unique learning environment or peer circumstance which you would like us to consider as we begin placements, we encourage you to complete a parent input form. Please note, teacher requests cannot be accommodated. Please take the time to share vital information now, as once placements are made in the fall they cannot be changed. Forms are available in the office. Please contact the office or your child's teacher and we will send one home. In order to be considered, forms must be received in the office by May 3rd.
