Spring testing season is upon us. On Monday, April 13th students will begin their NWEA testing. It will continue through Tuesday, April 21st with the exception of Wednesday, April 15th which will be a normal Wednesday schedule. The instructional day will be from 8:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Classes will be 45 minutes long. Lunch will be from 11:45 to 12:30 p.m. Testing will begin at 12:30 p.m. The testing schedule is attached for your review. No classroom instruction will occur in the afternoon; however, if your student is not passing all of his/her classes, he/she will be expected to stay in the afternoons to work on past due assignments or PLATO classes, and to get extra help from teachers.
Students will be tested in their advising groups on two afternoons, in the areas of reading, language arts and math. Spring, 2015 testing scores will be compared to Fall, 2014 testing scores to determine how much they have improved in the three skill areas tested over the course of this school year. These results will be reported to our authorizer, Ball State University.
Please feel free to contact me if you wish to know the results of the NWEA assessments

Thank you for all the students and teachers who helped with my Pi Day activities. We raised $66 to donate to Wounded Warrior Project in less than 30 minutes. This was an awesome time that the students and teachers enjoyed. The money will go to helping injured veterans be rehabilitated into the civilian world. Thank you again for the help and donations.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events.
Sept. 11 also served as a stimulus for Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and New Dawn. Operation Iraqi Freedom refers to military operations in Iraq that began March 19, 2003 and officially ended August 31, 2010. Operation Enduring Freedom refers to combat operations in Afghanistan and other regions in support of the Global War on Terror. Operation New Dawn refers to the conclusion of operations in Iraq beginning September 1, 2010 and ending December 15, 2011.
This is a special cause to my family and I as my husband is currently deployed with a detachment under the Operation Enduring Freedom campaign. Though my family has been blessed to not have him deployed earlier, he has been serving for the last five years with men and women who have participated in many of the operations. We both know individuals who have been affected both mentally or physically during their times at war.
