Dear Panther Families,
We are enjoying the last day of our Read-a-thon Spirit Week – happy Pajama Day! Keep reading Panthers and don’t forget that April 11th is the last day to turn in reading logs and donation envelopes.
Next week, we begin MSTEP testing for 3rd-5th grade students. Here is the testing schedule:
Tuesday, April 12th – Grades 3-5 English Language Arts
Wednesday, April 13th – Grades 3-5 English Language Arts
Thursday, April 14th – Grade 5 Social Studies
Here are a few important MSTEP reminders:
- Students may NOT have phones or Smart watches with them on test days. Teachers will have a place to store phones and Smart watches if this is necessary.
- Please make sure students are present and at school by 8:55 AM on testing days.
- Students and teachers may not share information regarding test questions with each other or families. The state of Michigan strives to make sure that questions and answers are not distributed online so that tests do not become invalidated.
- Students in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grades do not take MSTEP tests.
Also, make sure to check out the latest edition of Paw Prints – Parkwood-Upjohn’s student newspaper. Great job, writers and editors!
Finally, please help Girl Scout Troop 80409 help our families in need by donating non-perishable items. These community-minded Panther students are trying to fill a barrel by the end of the school year. Just place the items in the Loaves & Fishes barrel in the front office foyer.
Have a great weekend Panthers,
