Jump Rope for Heart!

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Over the next few weeks, we will be learning about how to take care of our hearts, spreading the message to friends and family, and helping others when we can! 

The American Heart Association’s goal is to improve the cardiovascular health of Americans.  They will challenge our kids to start living a healthy lifestyle now to prevent problems later; and give them an opportunity to participate in a service learning project that funds the fight against heart diseases and stroke – #1 and #5 cause of death in our country. 


© Any student who registers online with our school and raises at least $150.00 online will receive this Momma Gabby (pictured)! (Please note: Baby Gus is earned at the $200 level and will come separately post event) Please click here:

© Find your school and create your own web page send out email to family and friends. Your student will create their own web page and maybe a heart story to share. Many also post on social media such as face book which can go directly to your page. GOOD LUCK!!!


© Let us set our goal at saving as many lives as our students!!

© The kids are super excited about this challenge so the first step and easiest way to raise money is to get your student registered online.

The event kick-off is Wed March 1st and your student will have until Week of March 20th to help the school achieve their goal.

Have Fun!!!



7-12th grade students to take MAP test

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

During the week of February 27, your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®). We will give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of math and English. Your child will take the tests on a laptop or Chromebook.

MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing.  And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth. Over the next week, your child will spend a total of about 2 hours completing these tests.

This school year, students in grades 7-12 take the tests in February and May, and next school year students in grades 7-12 will take the tests in September, January and May. Following each testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth.

A parents guide to MAP tests can be found on the school website. [click here]
