News for Augusta Elementary families and community members!
During the week of April 22, our district elementary Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade students will be taking the state-mandated Ohio Achievement Assessments in Reading and Math. Fifth Grade students will also test in the area of Science. We strive to enable the most valid results that show the strengths and weaknesses of our students, so that parents and teachers can be aware of how their children are performing according to state standards. In order to help students do their best with these assessments we ask that parents help in the following areas:
Please make sure that students get plenty of sleep during this week, and that they have a filling breakfast, either at home or at school, every day. Also, please try to keep the morning routine as “stress-free” as possible. Students need to be at school on time every day, because, if students arrive to school late, they may not be able to test with their classmates. We cannot interrupt the testing process once the class has begun testing. We appreciate all the help from home, as it can make the difference for accurate scores.
The interim reports for students for the fourth nine-week grading period will go home with students on Friday, April 26. Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Thursday, May 2. Not all parents will receive invitations for these conferences, however, if you would like a conference with your child’s teacher, and don’t receive an invitation, please feel free to call the school or send a note with your child, and we will make sure that you have a conference scheduled.
Upcoming Grandparents’ Days are scheduled for Thursday, May 9, and Friday, May10, in the afternoon, beginning at 1:00. This is a change from previous years. Pre-school, Kindergarten, First, and Second Grades will host grandparent visits on Thursday, May 9. Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grades will welcome grandparents on Friday, May 10.
We hope to see you at our upcoming end-of-the-year events, listed in the school newsletter!
