This year three graduating seniors who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and student leadership will be the recipient of the David Warren Cuddy Scholarship Award. Candidates will have exhibited their leadership skills through their role in student government, as a yearbook editor, an athlete or in some other school wide capacity. Sound like someone you know? For more information on qualifications and how to apply, see DAVID WARREN CUDDY SCHOLARSHIP AWARD FLYER
You will notice that the optional campus tour is at the end of the day, this is available to all students, but do be aware that it will cause your students to be on campus until 3:30 as opposed to 1:15. Unfortunately, UAA will not be providing transportation for your students to or from Junior Day. I’ve attached a flier with more information about the event, but if you have questions about transportation, or event start and end times, don’t hesitate to reach out.
PEAKS is a computer-based assessment administered to students in grades 3-9 (English language arts and mathematics) and in grades 4, 8 and 10 (science) each spring. This state-required assessment provides students the opportunity to show their understanding of important skills in these content areas of their grade level.
For more information and ways to help your child prepare, please review the PEAK Flyer
NAEP INFORMATION TO PARENTS
This is a reminder that NAEP will take place at Steller Wednesday February 6th. Eight grade students will be tested in either Reading or Math and both tests are online.
There will be two test sessions, both in the MPR. The first group starts at 8:30 and will report to the MPR instead of their first hour class.
The second session starts at 11:30. Students need to bring a sack lunch and we will give them an early lunch break.
NO PHONES, SMART WATCHES, OR ELECTRONIC DEVICES ALLOWED. Please make sure to turn your phone off and leave it in your backpack or locker.
Students have received a note today about what session they are placed in (decided by the NAEP team) and they are asked to share the information with parents.
I have posted information about NAEP earlier, so please do a search on Flash for more information. If you have any questions, please call or send me an email.
