You’re invited to take our website survey to find out if the new website is meeting your needs.
During the last few months, we’ve been working to revamp our campus websites based on the feedback we received from focus groups, and online user surveys. Your feedback was critical because it helped us understand why people visit our websites and what they are trying to achieve once they get there.
It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!
We take your feedback very seriously, and want to provide parents with a valuable resource. If one of your favorite features from the old site is missing: let us know… (Gently – remember the Golden Rule!)
Click on this link to take the survey immediately.

We 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 Reading, Language, Math, and Science. Your child will take the tests on a 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.
* Please make sure that your student gets a good night sleep, a good breakfast and comes ready to do their best on the test.
*Please remind your child to bring their Chromebooks to school fully charged.
