As previously noted, the last day for this nine weeks will be Friday, January 23rd. Grade cards will go out approximately next Thursday barring any additional weather-related delays.
Our students were busy with online, mid-year assessments in grades K, 1, 2, and 3 this week. We believe that these assessments will help inform our instruction and aid students in preparing for the new technology-based tests from the state of Ohio, called "Next Generation Assessments" or "NGAs." As of this year these NGA tests replace the former proficiency / achievement tests (OAAs). If you as a parent are interested in learning more about the new state assessments in grades 3, 4, 5, and 6, please plan upon attending the upcoming practice session in the High School Library on Wednesday, January 28th from 4:00 - 5:00 pm. You can also check out resources on our school website by clicking on the tab for "Students" and "Online Testing" in the pull down menu.
But assessments are just one part of education. This month Carey staff members are modeling healthy lifestyles by participating in a water hydration challenge and our kindergarten students are learning music using rhythm sticks. We hope that your family finds a fun activity to participate in this winter. Be sure to check out the attached flier for fun activities sponsored by the Upper Sandusky Community Outreach.
