November 28, 2018 – Principal’s Corner
Dear Hale community,
It was great to get back yesterday after our extended Thanksgiving break. We hope you were able to find time to create memories with family and friends. We have a great deal to be thankful for in the Hale community.
Check out the latest edition of the Hale Hotline.
MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) Testing
Winter MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) testing begins this week. As a reminder, each student takes one math test and one reading test during the MAP testing window. Thank you for helping your child come to school ready to take these tests; well rested, well nourished, and feeling confident about reaching the goals set this fall.
6th Grade Parent Night at Addams Junior High
Throughout the month of November, Ms. Phelan, the assistant principal at Jane Addams Junior High has visited the elementary feeder schools in preparation for next school year. Sixth grade students received an overview of a typical day in junior high, learned about the different elective course options and extracurricular opportunities, and had an opportunity to have their questions answered. Next year’s scheduling is around the corner, so be on the lookout for your child’s elective selection sheet. The elective course selection sheets are due back on December 14. In addition to helping the students adjust, the junior highs are also offering a parent night to be held on Wednesday, December 12 from 6:00-7:00pm where you can come and learn about your child’s school for next year. For our Dual Language and Chinese Immersion families, there will be a presentation from 5:30-6:00pm that will provide specific information about the program your child is enrolled in.
