From August 26th through September 11th, our Kindergarten through 5th grade students will be taking MAP assessments in various subjects. These are taken for tracking and identification purposes, not for a grade. These assessments aid teachers in the classroom by providing immediate feedback on the subjects and topics your child understands, as well as where they excel and where they may need more help. A letter is being sent home in their folders today to explain more about the assessments and where you can find more information. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Bradow at email@example.com.
