Leader in Me Survey

You are being asked to complete this survey as part of an annual assessment to help all members of the school community (students, parents, and the adults who work at the school) understand how everyone feels about your child’s school. As you respond to each item, focus on your thoughts and feelings based on your own personal experience with the school, as well as your perceptions of your child's experience as a student. There are no right or wrong answers— this is not a test! We just want to know how you feel. Your responses will provide us with important information to help your child’s school become even better. All of your responses are completely anonymous. No one from the school will ever see your answers, and no identifying information (such as name, child’s name or survey ID) will be recorded with your answers. All results will be reported to your school only in terms of how each population responded. Individual responses are never seen by your school. The survey should take you approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Please try to respond to all items.  Click here to take the survey.

State Testing Begins Soon

stStudents in grades 3 - 5 will begin state testing on April 17th and go until May 10th. The ISATs are given each year in the spring, and are a measure of both your child’s achievement and growth this year and also as a measure of our school’s success in meeting your child’s academic needs. Testing will be held in your child’s regular classroom. Your child will take two tests in math and two tests in language arts. If your child is in 5th grade they will also take a science test. Your child will only be tested once weekly for five weeks. It is extremely important your child is at school for these tests. A schedule of the tests will be published soon. 

The week of April 23rd – 26th, students in grades K - 3 will take the Idaho Reading Indicator test (IRI). This is an annual test to measure the progress of your child’s reading skills. Research has shown if a child is successful on this test, they have a greater chance of being a successful reader throughout life. Our trained test proctors will be giving the test individually to all K-3 students throughout the week.
