Congratulations to our 5th Grade students, parents, and staff who enjoyed camp last week. While the weather left us wishing for sun, the smiles and connections made on the trip were well worth the effort!
Please note this upcoming and important event which will require parents to pre-plan:
October 3 and 4th: PK-Grade 5 Parent-Teacher-Student: 3-Way Conferences
The purpose of these conferences is to establish a relationship between student, parents and teacher- those who are responsible for supporting the student through the learning process.
All present at the conference will have a role to play in highlighting and identifying achievements, challenges and possible next steps.
Sign-Ups will be sent out next week via our new conferences sign-up tool: Scholastico. While we will not have regular school on Oct. 3 and 4, attendance at the scheduled conference (during the times you sign up for) is mandatory. Teachers will not host conferences outside of the two days established for this work.
As I mentioned at Back to School night- parents are welcome to schedule other times to meet with teachers regarding their children. However, the conferences scheduled on the ES Calendar- when students are not attending school- require student and parent presence to ensure our collaborative learning goals occur.
Finally, this Wednesday-Friday I will be off campus with a small group of our PYP Learning Leaders, attending a conference on Teacher Leadership. While I do not like being absent, my work with this group of teachers is important to our continued growth and goals as a PYP school.
I will remain available via email, and the ES Office Team is ready to help you in any way they can.

MAP- Measures of Academic Progress Testing- Grades 3-5
During the week of September 18-22, we will be conducting the MAP test in the Elementary School. This test is a standardized test students in Grades 3-5 take on a computer. It is also an “adaptive test” meaning the questions change based on how the child answers them. A few important items to note:
