ELEMENTARY MAP TESTING
During the weeks of October 3-7 and October 11-14, students in grades K-5 will be completing MAP testing. MAP, or the Measure of Academic Progress, is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students. Your child’s classroom teacher will let you know the days your child will be taking these tests. Please do everything you can to be sure your child is present those days. As always, if your child is not feeling well, keep him or her home and we will set up a make-up session.
The students in grades K-2 are taking two tests; one in reading and one in math. Students in grades 3-5 will take an additional test in science. The tests are untimed, but each test session generally takes one hour to complete. If a student needs more time, more time will be provided. For students in Kindergarten, the sessions are only half-an-hour long. The amount of time spent testing is greatly decreased using these computerized tests, and we will be able to access results almost immediately to be able to better serve our students and families.
If you have any questions about MAP testing, feel free to contact me. I help to set up and proctor the tests.

SEE YOU AT THE POLE
Wednesday, September 28
Students in grades six through twelve are encouraged to attend the See You at the Pole™ event at PVCA. The event begins at 7:20 AM at the flag pole in front of the school.
See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Twenty years later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.
See You at the Pole™ is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. See You at the Pole™ is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.
