NWEA Testing - Week of January 21 - 25

Dear Elementary Parent:

It is that time in the school for the second round of NWEA Testing. Each year we administer this assessment three times to our students (Fall, Winter, Spring). The test results give your child's teacher(s) important data that measures academic growth as well as identifying strengths and any areas needing improvement. Students in grades K-1 are assessed in Math and Reading. Students in grades 3-6 are assessed in Math, Reading and Language. The majority of the assessments will take place on January 21, 22 and 23. Students missing any of the assessments due to being absent, will have an opportunity to complete the assessment when he or she returns.

Parents can help their child be as successful as possible by ensuring he or she is well rested and has breakfast. As a staff, we want all of our students to understand the NWEA assessments are an important part of their overall education. All of the data is reviewed by staff and in many cases by the students as well. At almost every grade level, students set target scores for their own personal improvement. Having student ownership for their NWEA results goes a long way in helping he or she raise their achievement bar.

Thank you for your support.

Jeff Tousley, FES Principal

Featured Students and Classrooms

A student from Mr. Jackson's 3rd grade brought in a book for read-aloud, authored by her Grandmother, Valerie Winans. The story was told from Remington Beagle's point of view. Today we finished the story and got a special visit from the author and storyteller!

Ask your child about the GaGa Pit at Frankfort Elementary. The Elementary school was able to fund this through the use of funds from MSU Extension and Fuel Up To Play 60! This has become a student favorite at recess time!
