A Message From the Principal~
We appreciate you! A huge thank-you to those of you who attended spring conferences. It is always so rewarding to share information and work as a team for your children. We thank you for your time and energy in supporting the success of your children.
As you may have heard, next week begins our state testing. Our third graders will be testing in English and Language Arts next week. These are computer based tests which are adaptive. That means that based on the students’ responses, the computer adjusts the questions to match the students’ ability. There are also tasks, which require classroom work and then computer responses. These are called performance tasks. The new testing system is called WCAP (formerly Smarter Balance). It replaces the MSP. This testing measures the students’ understanding of the Common Core State Standards. As this is our first year taking this test, we are looking at this year as a baseline year. We are looking at this as an opportunity to learn and understand what this assessment looks like and how it will be scored. As with any assessment, we want our students to come to school ready. Providing an opportunity for a good night sleep helps our students feel rested and ready. This is not an assessment we can study for, we want our students to come with a positive attitude and the idea that we will do the best we can. If possi-ble, please make appointments on weeks your child is not testing.
A huge thank-you to so many of our PTO volunteers who organized, planned and created the Spaghetti Feed and Bingo night! It was great to see so many of you there! Our marimba band was amazing! Thank you, Mrs. Rowe and fifth grade students! One of the auction items was, “Principal for the Day,” which Simon Brown won. He was principal on Wednesday, and his duties included greeting guest teachers, writing a paragraph for this newsletter, monitoring recess and the book fair, passing out pencils, meeting with our custodian, and helping with lost and found. He invited a guest in for lunch and then enjoyed recess. Simon wrote a paragraph for our newsletter.
“Hi, I am Simon Brown. I am in Mrs. Stratton’s class. I am seven years old and in first grade. My birthday was on February 1st. In my spare time, I play baseball, outfield and pitcher, and I play soccer. In my family, I have a sister who is four years old and my mom and dad are awesome. We have chickens and sometimes we eat their eggs. My favorite subject in school is P.E. and I also like music and love library. I had fun being principal for the day!” I recommend the book called Dinosaurs Before Dawn, a Magic Tree-house book, and Finding Danny.
Simon and I wish you a great weekend!

Important Notice About Internet Safety
The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.
Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
