Our scholars will be finishing with the ISAT (Illinois Standards Achievement Test) on March 12. This past week our students took three math tests and one reading test, and our fourth graders also took two science tests. Please ensure that your student is at school everyday.
ISAT is given to all 3rd-8th grade students in the state. Parents will receive the results in the fall. The results will demonstrate if students meet or exceed state standards in math and reading, and in fourth grade science. Gates will host a workshop in the fall to help parents read the 2014 ISAT results, and to help parents prepare their scholars for the PARCC. The PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers)2015 will be new for all of our scholars next year.
Art tells a story was the theme of the field trip planned by Mrs. Jacobs & the 4th grade team. Gates fourth graders received many compliments from the staff of the Chicago Art Institute while discussing world class art. Each student received a free family pass to return to the museum & share what they learned any time through December 2014. It was a fabulous day! (photo credits - Ms. Bruno)
