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!

INSET Feedback Survey: Last Call

Happy Friday!

If you are not one of the 50 people that have given quality feedback to inform our future professional learning, you might think you’ve missed your chance…but, NAY, NAY, NAY!

You can still give feedback until today at 4pm via this link. This tool has been built for your survey-taking enjoyment, because we all know that “work made fun, gets done!”

As the age-old proverb says, “Ain’t nothin’ to it, but to do it!”

 

 

INSET INFO HERE (Again!)

Welcome Back for Day Two,

Please find the schedule for our two days of professional learning here.

See everyone in the PAC for coffee, catch ups, and an 8:15am start with Dr. Perez. She was on campus yesterday for the full tour, preparation, and conversation. She’s excited to help add to our differentiation tool kit as we seek to individualize learning for all of our students. A link to the pdf packets Kathy will refer to is located here.

Please bring a charged laptop, the writing implement of your choice, and something to write upon if you would like to take notes beyond the printed materials she will provide.

Thanks and see you then!

Tomorrow is the BIG Day!

Hello NIS Students,

Curious about the plan for tomorrow’s 25 Anniversary Schedule?? Good!

Here’s all you need to do…

  1. Wear as much NIS gear (shirts, hoodies, House shirts, etc) as possible. 
  2. Primary students report to homerooms, as usual.
  3. MS/US student report to assembly in the PAC as usual.
  4. Get ready to spend the day off-timetime creating and collaborating with your fellow students as we celebrate 25 years of NIS.
  5. Note: There will be cupcakes… Delicious cupcakes…

See you all then as we go down in NIS History!

October 8-9 INSET Schedule DRAFT

Hello Fellow Life-Long Learners,

Please find a DRAFT schedule of our two October INSET days with Dr. Kathy Perez here. Though some of the wording and focus of individual sessions may change, the overall structure will likely stay the same. The context of this work is to continue to hone our craft around differentiation as we seek to personalize the learning experience for each of our students. A worthy endeavor, for sure!

Please see SET with any questions about INSET at this time.

Thanks!
