We will begin State Testing on the 25th of April with our 8th graders in Science. The rest of the students will begin testing the week of May 1st. Each student will take one test a week for the month of May. We will conclude testing at the end of May. During this time, please be sure your children are well rested, have a good breakfast, and please remind them to do their best. At NVMS, we use the Smarter Balanced Assessments to determine placement in Academy classes, Enrichment classes, and they help us make a variety of other decisions, so please take a moment to talk with your child about the importance of doing well on the State Assessments. Our current schedule is as follows; The week of April 24 - Science Testing The week of May 1 - Language Arts - Short Answer Items The Week of May 8 - Language Arts - Extended Response Items/Performance Task The Week of May 15 - Math - Short Answer Items The Week of May 29 - Math - Extended Response Items/Performance Task Each class will take the assessment with their homeroom class with the teacher who instructs them in the subject area being tested. For example the Language Arts Teacher will be assessing their students during their Language Arts class. All of our testing will be done before Lunch. If you are making an appointment during the Smarter Balanced Testing please make sure it is in the afternoon.
Please ask your student if they have fees for fines, or you can check yourself online. Students who have not returned library books, textbooks, athletic items, etc. are fined. Any student with a fine cannot participate in sports or the 8th grade Breakout Ceremony. Please make sure your student has returned items as they need to be returned. Fees and fines stay on the student account until items are returned or paid for.
