Good morning and welcome back to another great week of learning! Please see the video below for our weekly announcements. Today is the first day of College Go! week and our theme is "Stay in School" and students dressed in their school spirit wear. Ms. Garcia, our child need's specialist, has posted lessons in classrooms for College Go! week, so students, be sure to check those out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGJwECUrUu0&feature=youtu.be
Next week is College Go! week. We have some fun activities and spirit days planned for the week! Activities will be posted by our child need's specialist, Ms. Garcia, each day in See Saw and Google Classrooms. This is a great opportunity for you to share your own college and/or career experiences and discuss the skills and traits necessary to succeed past high school. Monday is "Stay In School!" and students can wear their Nathan Hale Spirit Wear. Tuesday is "Your Future is Bright!" and students can wear a bright shirt in neon colors. Wednesday is "Teamwork Pays Off!" and students can wear their favorite sports team shirt. Thursday is "Dress for Success!" This is a great opportunity for them to dress up as what they want to be when they grow up. Friday is "Going to College" and students can wear their favorite college attire (Hint, hint... Boiler Up!)

NWEA Testing This Week! We know today was tough for some of you trying to get into the NWEA practice test. While we know it can be frustrating, please be patient as we work out the kinks and device issues. If for any reason you continue to have problems while testing tomorrow, let the teacher know and we can always schedule another time for your child while we work out the bugs. Also, an important reminder that when your child is taking the test, do not help him or her solve the problems. The purpose of this assessment is to determine where they are at academically so that we can best support them instructionally. Similar to the iReady math diagnostic, the test is adaptive, meaning that the questions adjust to how the student is answering; if the student misses so many items in a row, the questions will start to get easier. If the student answers them correctly, the questions will get harder. It's important that students answer the questions themselves so we know their current level. Both iReady and NWEA will create individual learning paths for students to work on independently, and if you help students with the answers, their learning paths will not be appropriate for their instructional level. Thank you!

Just a reminder that tomorrow is student material pick up in the parking lot. Students will receive their Welcome Back Bag with all of the materials and resources they will need to start the school year Monday! It will be a drive through pick up and we ask that you wear a mask and bring your own pen to fill out any forms that still need to be completed. If you requested a device last week, you will be able to pick it up at Door 7 on Oliver Street. Pick up hours are 9-12 and 1-4. ALL students must pick up their Welcome Back Bag so they are ready to roll on Monday morning! See you tomorrow!
