February 2016

Dear Parents,

        It's been a great start to the New Year! January and February are busy months for assessing our students. We believe that assessment works best when it is ongoing and not just one point in time. Therefore we assess multiple times a year on several of our assessments to determine if our students are growing and meeting standards. We use the MAP assessment to support instruction and monitor implementation of our curriculum and help our students set personal goals. This is our mid-way point to determine how students are progressing towards meeting their personal learning goals. During January all students completed the winter round of MAP for reading and math. January/February is also when students will be reassessed with a closer look at reading levels using our running records assessment. Teachers use data results to measure students' abilities and strengths and to identify where a child may need to grow. Winter MAP assessment results will be sent home February 10. As always if you have questions about the results or other assessment results please connect with your child's teacher.

        A year ago we were informing you about the new state assessment, PARCC. This year we will be taking the PARCC Assessment in April after we return from Spring Break in grades 3-5. We will again be taking these assessments in paper/pencil form.

Please access the link for more information

        You may also visit our home page for resources. We will be communicating with you more in our next two newsletters.

        Schiesher staff knows that assessment is important to creating a more student-centered classroom. While data from test scores give us a framework to better serve our students, we also know our students are more than just data results. Think of a stained glass window with assessment data as one of many pieces. We know our students come with experiences that have shaped and driven their lives, such as family stories, favorite books, hobbies, trips, and friendships. The more we know and learn about our students the more we know what drives them to learn.

        Finally, thank you for all you do to support our students, Schiesher, and Lisle CUSD 202! Mark your calendars to join us for the next community engagement, Vision 202 on February 16th at Lisle Junior High from 7-9PM. Have a great month!
