Smarter Balanced Assessment Dates
Our 3rd-6th graders have begun our state assessment, the Smarter Balanced Assessment. This measures their academic growth and achievement this year. Following are the remaining testing dates. It is very important for your child to be in school. Making up tests causes students to miss class. In addition, students who must make up tests must take them in different locations with adults other than their teachers, and they do not always do as well in these conditions. Please avoid vacations and appointments on the days that your child’s grade level is testing and contact your child’s teacher right away if you know of any conflicts.
May 16, May 22—Mathematics
May 22, May 24—Mathematics
May 23, May 24—Science (5th grade is the only grade tested in science)
May 15, May 16—English and Language Arts
May 21, May 23—Mathematics
Shiloh Fund Run and Family Picnic Lunch
On Monday, June 11, we will host our Fund Run followed by a family picnic from 12 - 1. Parents and families are invited to participate in both. Come watch your child run, or better yet, lace up your sneakers and run or walk with your child. Afterwards, grab a sack lunch prepared by our kitchen staff, lay out a blanket on the grass, and eat lunch with your Eagle. Lunches for adults will be available for pre-purchase, or alternatively you are welcome to pack and bring a picnic lunch for your family. Information about pre-purchasing your school sack lunch will come out on Monday, May 21, and the window for pre-purchase will be May 22 - June 1.
Last Day of School
And suddenly, it's time to remind families about the last day of school...wow! Our last day will be Wednesday, June 13. Students are dismissed at noon. Lunch is not served on the last day of school, so please make plans accordingly for your child. Transportation changes, if there are any, will be announced soon.
