Announcements

  • A Quick Update on Testing from Mr. Kijowski:  Things are going well as we finish our second week of state testing in language arts.  Just as in past years, our teachers have been meticulous with ensuring every student feels confident and ready to test.  This means some students are testing before others, but in the end, we are making sure to meet every child’s needs.  Kudos to our teachers for jointly developing their lesson plans by grade level.  This ensures that the children who have already tested are still receiving quality instruction and moving forward in the curriculum.  As we tell the kids, “There is still a lot to learn before you move to the next grade level.”  Although it can be inconvenient & cumbersome, state testing is important.  It gives us a lot of good information that we use to help each child grow and excel for the following school year.  Plus, it is a reliable sign that the child is academically ready for the next grade level.  At Simpson, we take our time with the testing process.  We put a lot of manpower behind it to ensure every child is successful.   We do this, for no other reason, because it is the right thing to do for your kids.  If you have any questions about the testing process or the activities/lessons, don’t hesitate to contact me or Mrs. Martin.  Again, great job to our students and their teachers as we continue to work through testing.
