Good morning excellent Nerge community!
As you know, at Nerge and in District 54, we are highly attuned to helping our students reach their maximum potentials. As such, we are very focused on monitoring student growth over the course of the school year. When we set MAP goals with students, they are geared toward measuring growth from fall to spring. In the winter, however, we use the results to check student progress and help us inform future instruction. As such, we ask that our students provide their best efforts on the Winter MAP test, so that we get the most accurate picture of the current level of performance. I will be talking about this with the students, and teachers will be reinforcing this message with their students as well.
In order to ensure that your child gives his or her best effort, please see the schedule below. As with any school day, a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast are important. Also, please encourage your children to do their best, but also to relax and be confident. The message we give them here is consistent: take your time, do your best, but do not be afraid of the result. We are proud of any student that tries his or her best, regardless of the resulting score.
Also, please try to avoid scheduling out of school appointments during these test times if possible.
