The first two weeks have flown by already; hopefully the transition to the regular routines of school has gone well for your family.
As mentioned last week, our school will be participating in MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing this year. The testing will start next week for students in grades 3-8.

Since the MAP test is done entirely on the computer, the test will adapt the level of questions to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student will have the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing.

The Impact Team used the gifts of their different members: 3 students wrote a devotional to correspond with each letter. Each day, student […]
