Viking Themes for May: Friendship Skills, Humility, and Managing Impulsivity
This month we are learning more about being good friend, being humble and having humility, and skills to manage impulsivity. Here is a short video teaching children how to be good friends.
How Are We Doing? Deadline is today - Friday, April 28th.
Your feedback is critical in helping our district continually improve. Please take this short, multiple-choice survey to share your perspective on the educational effectiveness of your child’s school.
Your survey responses, along with other research and analysis, play an important part in the development of each school’s annual improvement plan, which includes goals that are specific, data-driven and measurable.
If you have more than one child in the district, you may complete a survey for each school your children attends. Hard copies of the survey, also available in Spanish, are available at your school.
End of Year Testing and State Assessments
Students have been working hard all year and continue to grow in their academic abilities. Here at Bonney Lake Elementary we are constantly looking at student learning data to guide our instruction and specific student supports. As we prepare for our end of year testing and state assessments, please help your student to do their best and show what they know by:
Being on-time and at school each and every day
Getting a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast before coming to school
Having a healthy lunch and snacks to keep up the energy they need to be successful
Praise them for doing their best to show what they know and have learned this year in school
May 15 through 26 - SBA testing (grades 3-5)
June 1 through 9 - MAP and AIMS testing (all grades)
June 1 - 5th grade Science MSP
All Pro Dads - Another Great Turnout!
Thanks to the dads and students who attended on Tuesday night. Be sure to watch for our next All Pro Dad event and come join us!
Student Placement 2017-18
We will soon begin the student placement process for the 2017-18 school year. Careful thought is put into balancing all classrooms according to students' academic and social needs. Parent Input Forms are available in the front office. If you have information about your child that you would like us to consider during the placement process, we ask that you complete a Parent Input Form and submit it to our front office prior to May 12th.
