It’s about time again for students to take the mid-year MAPS test. Our 3rd and 4th graders will be taking the reading/language MAPS test the week of December 9th. We will be breaking the test up into 2 days and giving brain breaks throughout so students don’t feel overwhelmed. We’re hoping a few new test taking strategies will also help them do well on the test!
We have pulled each student aside to show them their growth over the last year and to give them a goal to work towards for this upcoming test. To get them motivated to do their absolute best, we’ve promised to reward them with a walking field trip to the downtown movie theater if 75% of each class meets their personal growth goal.
Both 3rd grade classes will be going on Monday, December 16th from 12:30-3:45pm if the goal is met. Likewise, both 4th grade classes will be going on Tuesday, December 17th from 9:30-1:00pm if their goal is met. Each student attending will need to bring $5 which will include the cost of admission, popcorn, and a soda/drink. Prior to the event, students will get to vote on which movie will be viewed. We will post the movie title once it’s selected.
