Collins-Maxwell is excited to begin participation in the Back Pack Program.  This program is sponsored by the Food Bank of Iowa.  Pre-K through 6th grade students that meet the requirements will receive a a bag of food in their back backs on Fridays to take home for the weekend.  The food bank provides some items, but we are hopeful that school groups and community organizations will provide some additional items throughout the year, as well.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please email Kelly Peavey at colkitchen@collins-maxwell.k12.ia.us

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.
