MAP Testing
Thanks to everyone for trying your best on MAP Testing this week.  While there are many indicators of success, this is one avenue that you can use to see how you are improving in many different areas.  We will have make-up tests this Friday and next week for those students who were absent or didn't get to finish their test for some reason.

US Library on Wednesday Afternoon

The US Library is closed at 2:40 on Wednesdays.  Unless you have SAS, you will not be allowed to enter.  Thanks for understanding.

Student Voice
Thank you to all of the students who helped with Monday's Assembly! Student Voice will continue to explore our theme for the year (The Power to Choose) and find creative ways to work with the school on delivering that message. If you have any ideas for the next Assembly, please come join our group. If you are interested in becoming a leader in the school, by helping make school-wide decisions, then please join us on Thursdays. We meet every Thursday in room D7 during lunch (you can bring your lunch to the room).  The group is open to all students!

Thanks - Mr. Tuttle and Student Voice

Apologies
Unfortunately, yesterday's attempt to take a MAP Practice Test was a failure in many cases.  We have been told by the technology dept. that we will be okay next week when we begin testing.  It is important that everyone has Chrome downloaded and uses it next week for the real test.  We should be squared away for next week.
