Super Powers Are at Work!

We have two days of whole class testing completed and the students are doing well.  Reports from students are that they know what is being tested and they feel good about their answers. As a staff we know they can do great things and are encouraged to hear the students voice this also.

Today - Thursday - is Take Your Child to Work Day so there will be no regular testing.  Some makeup testing may occur as needed.

Please continue to join us in encouraging students to do their best on the test!  Super Powers are at work!

MAP - Super Powers will be used!

It's time for the MAP test in grades 3-5.  We held two assemblies today to motivate the students and celebrate their hard work of increasing learning this year.  Our morning assembly was for all grades and featured the Eagle Singers and grade 5 putting on a musical about testing.  They did a fabulous job, singing, dancing, and acting.  The afternoon assembly was for 3rd-5th grades with a skit about testing put-on by the staff.  Once again all the kids displayed that they are ready for the test by answering correctly the MAP preparedness questions.

All students know they should be getting a good nights rest, eating a healthy breakfast, being on time to school, and present the entire test, to be assured they are prepared to do their best.  We know they will do a fabulous job of taking the tests these next two weeks.  We will begin our day each day with a motivating MAP parade to get the body and brain ready for the tests.

Remember we all have super powers and can use them to do our best on the MAP.  

Expecting great things from our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders!

Eagles Have Talent!

Wow!  Last evening our Eagles displayed such talent at our Annual West Englewood Talent Show.  We moved to Oak Park High School to ensure all our families had room to view our talented kiddos and it worked out really well.  It was a fun evening filled with laughter, dancing, singing, and such talent.  Thanks to the team at West Englewood that put this all together, to the families that attended last night and to our fabulous students that shared their talents last night with the audience.

This next week we will have the opportunity to see the talent in academics our Eagles have in grades  3-5 as we begin MAP testing on Tuesday.  We will be using our POWERS to succeed at the MAP test.  Monday is Super Hero day so come to school in your super hero attire.

Eagles will rock the MAP!
