Memorial Day Siren

Today is the official Memorial Day of the Nanjing Massacre. An air raid siren can often be heard at 10:01am on this date to commemorate this solemn event. Please be advised.

MAP Reports Going Home Today

Hello Grade 3-10 Students,

Your MAP scores will be given to you by your classroom (G3-5) or Advisory (G6-10) teacher today. They MUST go home with you today. Your parents have been emailed and are expecting an unopened envelope for you to open together. Inside is an explanation of your progress on the test. 

Please remember that while your performance on these assessment is very important to your teachers, in terms of measuring your progress in Math and Reading, they are only one data point. These “snapshots” of your learning are key, but the entire “photo album” of all your achievements over time is a more reliable data set!

Thanks for getting these scores home safely; we’ll give the MAP another go in the Spring! 

MAP Info Going Home Today

Hello All,

A reminder that Fall MAP reports and an explanation letter are going home to Grade 3-10 parents today. The letter (attached here) has information for parents about how to interpret student scores. MAP reports for all Grade 3-10 students is located here as well.

Please see any member of SET with questions. A parent Q&A session is happening next week as well. The central message for parents is that these scores are a snapshot diagnostic, not a rich “photo album” of student progress. 

Many Thanks to Advisors and Grade 3-5 classroom teachers for getting these home with students today!
