Spring Classroom Parties – PTO

On February 14th students will have their spring party. At this party, students are allowed to bring Valentines, if they wish, to share with friends in their classroom. More information about the party and Valentines will come from grade level teams.

For your information and planning, in order to align with the Lincoln Public Schools healthy schools initiative, and in order to maximize safety for all children, we are asking families to not send candy or other edible items with Valentine’s. Children may bring Valentine cards. If families wish to send something along with the cards, please consider sending a pencil, eraser, or stickers. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Schirmer.

MAP scores on ParentVue

Steps:

  1. Login to ParentVue, then click on Test History
  2. Next, scroll down to the area on the page with the heading MAP Growth or MAP Fluency. If the results are not showing, slide the Detail button to “on.”.
  3. (MAP Growth Grades 2-8 ) The RIT score is the scale score. The column labeled “Percentile” contains the national percentile rank. A percentile rank of 70 means that the student scored as high or higher than other students in his/her grade level.
  4. (MAP Fluency Grades K-1) The tests that display will vary somewhat, depending on which subtests your student was given. The test is adaptive and will adjust in difficulty (including subtests given) based on student responses. Categories are “Below,” “Approaches,” “Meets,” and “Exceeds.”
