May Message

We have arrived in the month of May in our school calendar.  All students in grades three to eight, and those enrolled in Algebra 1, Geometry, ELA 9 and ELA 10 must be assessed with the new state assessment called the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment (NJSLA).   Additionally, we are giving Grade 11 students who have not yet met their graduation requirement the opportunity to demonstrate proficiency by attaining a proficient score on the NJSLA.   These assessments have been required under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation and now under Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  The assessment is now based on specific New Jersey standards and the number of questions has been reduced.  We use these results to drive instruction for the next academic year.  Please feel free to speak with the building principal/vice-principal or guidance counselor if you have any questions.
 
Also in May we observe Memorial Day when we honor all of our service men and women who have lost their lives defending our country.  We will have discussions in class, projects relating to this holiday, and ceremonies to help the children understand what that weekend is all about.  Please always remember the fallen in your thoughts.
 
I would like to wish each mom a Happy Mother’s Day.  We celebrate them on May 12th but we should celebrate mothers each day of the year for all they do.
