  • Dear Families,

     

    Winter assessment days are quickly approaching at West Ridge!  The purpose of these days is to allow our teachers to assess your child, gather information from these assessments, and plan appropriate instruction at this mid-point of the year.  The assessment school days this winter will be December 18th and 19th, 2014.

     

    For these winter assessments, parents are NOT required to stay.  Kindergarten parents will be contacted if their child needs to be assessed.  1st through 5th grade students will be scheduled for assessment according to their LAST NAME, and will follow the schedule below:

     

    Students ONLY attend the 2 hour slot assigned by LAST NAME.

     

    Students with Last Names Beginning With:

    Testing Time

    Testing Day

    A - D

    8:30 – 10:30

    December 18th

     

    E - L

    11:00 – 1:00

    December 18th

     

    M - Q

    1:30 – 3:30

    December 18th

     

    R - S

    T - Z

    11:00 – 1:00

    The assessment days are considered student contact days and all attendance policies and procedures apply.

     

    Students should arrive five minutes prior to their testing time and be picked up at the end of the testing window.  Your child will be active during the entire 2 hour assessment window, but there will be no supervision for students arriving before or staying after the testing.  Daycare is not available for the assessment days. 

     

    We look forward to these days as an opportunity to gather additional information that will help us make more informed academic decisions to benefit your student/s.  If you have any questions about the assessment days, please don’t hesitate to call our West Ridge office.
