Parents,

Are you confused when you see your student’s Iowa Assessments Profile Narrative?  Do you know if your student is proficient or not in reading, math and science?

We have created a narrated slideshow to help answer some of your questions about this state test.  We hope this will answer some of your questions and explain the scores generated from these assessments.  If you have any other questions please feel free to talk with your student’s teacher.

Any assistance you can provide in spreading the word about this opportunity is greatly appreciated.

    This seven-day trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park runs June 27 – July 3 and is for those completing grades 9-12 this spring. Students will experience three nights back-country camping in what is considered the most diverse habitat in North America. It’s a trip to challenge mind, body, and spirit. Interested students should apply soon – the deadline is this Friday, May 15 at 4:00 p.m. More information and application can be found here.
