Hello Dual Language families, 

Here are a few important items for you this week. 

Thanks for your participation in our curriculum night.  We hope that all your questions were answered. 

We know that your teachers enjoyed sharing information with you and are grateful for your support.

Supply Bag Pick Up

Our next date for pick up is Monday, September 21st. Please follow the same procedures as in August. Go through the driveway, go to the front of the building drive, and pull up as far as you can.  Please be sure to put your child’s name and teacher’s name on a large paper in the front of your windshield.  In case you need it, our address is 810 N. Aspen Dr. It’s very important that you bring back the first bag you received. We will exchange it for a new bag filled with essential instructional materials. 

Here is the schedule for pick up:

7:00 – 8:00 a.m. Open to any family

MAP Testing

Students in grades 2-5 will be taking NWEA MAP testing in reading and math next week,  the week of September 21st.  Classroom teachers have shared their specific schedule with you. Please make sure that you have completed the technology check on the device that your student will test on.  Please make sure that your children are on time for these tests. Teachers do monitor the activity of your students on the test. If your child does not complete the test, they will complete it at a different time/day just as they would during in school testing. If your child is absent on the day of the MAP test, there will be a make up day, just as there would be during in school testing. 

Meal Service

USDA has extended the waiver allowing our district to provide meals at no charge to families. We are excited to extend this option to families who need this service!  Please  complete this survey to be added on the list for meal delivery to a designated bus stop or pick up at Middle School South.
