NWEA

posted Oct 5, 2009, 10:16 PM by Sheri Edwards

Next week our students will participate in testing by NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association). The tests are adaptive: they become easier or harder as the student answers indicate their achievement. This provides important information on what skills each child needs to learn. 

Schools who participate in NWEA improve in their state testing scores; students progress in their daily work.

We are excited about this tool for helping guide our instruction for each child.

Please find out when your child's tests are, and make sure the students have plenty of sleep before test day! Thanks for your support !

Elders, frybread, stickgames, pow wow!

This week our classroom activities included elders sharing and Mrs. Ives, Marion Ives's mother, made frybread for everyone.

On Wednesday, our first stick game tournament began, hosted by the eighth grade culture class under the direction of Marion Ives. Drew helped with the song and drumming and Josh kept everything fair and organized.

Also on Wednesday, our fall Pow Wow captured the hearts of observers and dancers as the drum beat carried the song for dancers to express their best efforts.

In the writing classroom, we began our "Where I'm From" poem prewriting.

Every day students could share their culture and history.
