MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) TESTING

From September 16-26, 2019, our students in grades K-8 will be taking the MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) Tests again. Tests such as these are among the most important tools we have for evaluating individual student academic progress and our curriculum as a whole.  These tests can identify strengths and weaknesses and determine which areas, if any, a student may need extra help and in which areas he or she excels.  Consider spending a few minutes talking with your child about the purpose and importance of these tests in a way that will ease any anxiety that he or she might have.  Encourage your child to do their best, take the test seriously, but not to worry about the results.  Each child is a unique gift from God and has value far beyond simple academic evaluations.  For each testing day, please ensure that your child gets plenty of sleep, eats a good breakfast, and wears comfortable school appropriate attire.
