NWEA MAPs Testing is underway! Next week we will test Math and Science. You will LOVE the data you get back!
Student Personal Internet Devices Too many devices! Not enough bandwidth! Not enough IP Addresses! We will be disabling students’ ability to connect to the district Internet from their devices, at least during NWEA MAPs. Sorry kids, back to your data plan!

“Change moves in spirals, not circles. For example, the sun goes up and then it goes down. But every time that happens, what do you get? You get a new day. You get a new one. When you breathe, you inhale and you exhale, but every single time that you do that you’re a little bit different than the one before. We’re always changing. And its important to know that there are some changes you can’t control and that there are others you can.” Ryan Gosling: ‘Half Nelson’ Memorable Quote
