The CMP Owl Post 1/10/20

The CAASPP assessments are all taken on a computer. The Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments in English Language Arts and mathematics are computer adaptive.  That means that students take the test on a computer and the computer gives students questions that are easier, the same, or more difficult based on their answers to the previous questions. As students answer questions correctly, they receive more challenging questions. Incorrect answers trigger easier questions. This helps keep the test short for many students and makes sure the scores are very accurate, especially for students who score very low or very high.

Next week, all third through eighth graders will begin taking the Math tests. We will continue in February with the English Language Arts sections.

On Wednesday, Ms Teci hosted an assembly to kick off our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports or PBIS. 

PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools. It is a systems approach to enhancing the capacity of schools to educate all children by developing research-based, school-wide, and classroom behavior support systems. Our PBIS team was helped by middle school students in the creation of videos for the appropriate behvior. We would like to thank these students for their participation: Oliver R, Sawyer A, Evan C, Leo V, Ella Mc, Alexa C, Sydney G, Michelle G, Danika B, Adora W, Madison R and Marie K. 

We also have a new bulletin board in the multi-purpose room with our revised school motto.

Next Tuesday, January 14th at 3:30 we will be hosting a Technology Information session. All families are encouraged to attend this meeting. We know that many of our families have questions about our new Parent Square communication tool. We will also share information and answer questions about the i-Ready online English Language Arts and Math instruction program and the Rosetta Stone program. Please join us for this informative session.

We are excited for the annual Geography Bee on Tuesday, January 21st. Our superintendent, Brett Barley will be the moderator. Please join us for this event.

Our STEAM Expo is coming up on January 30th from 3:30-5:30 in the MP room. All of the classes will participate in a hands-on related to the STEAM fields. They include: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. If you have expertise in any STEAM field and would like to set up a demonstration booth in the MP Room, please respond to the STEAM Expo post from yesterday.
