Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!
PEP (Pupil Enrichment Program in the STEAM Lab, formerly the library: It's wonderful to see students back in the STEAM Lab after a sun filled summer! We will start off the year reviewing expectations and what all the acronyms stand for, along with the Engineering Design Process. We will explore some of the activities and experiments planned for the year like becoming drone-certified, planting Zombie seeds, sewing, and Finch robots- just to name a few! And, of course, in October, we will make our traditional Halloween slime. PEP meets once a week for grades K-8.
9/20/22: Our 8th graders are UAS (unmanned aircraft systems) certified! Way to go!
AAE (Advanced Academics & Enrichment):
AAE will begin in a few weeks for both Language Arts and Math this year in grades 1-5.
CogATs: Cognitive Abilities Tests (achievement tests in quantitative, verbal, and non-verbal batteries) will be given in spring of 2023.
AimsWeb: AimsWeb assessments for grades K-8 are given three times a year in Early Literacy/Reading and Early Numeracy/Math: fall, winter, and spring. Fall assessments will begin the week of 9/13, and the data collected will be shared with classroom teachers as just one measurement tool to help all students receive personalized instruction. .
