Principal's Message

Dear Parents,
     Where did January go? Time seems to be slipping away. It was a rough month for students and staff sickness. We hope everyone is on the mend as we get past this flu/cold/strep season without too many more cases. Our mid-year (3rd-5th) interim assessments WY-TOPP (Wyoming's Test of Proficiency and Progress) and K-5 FAST (Formative Assessment System for Teachers) are almost complete. WY-TOPP is used as a check-in point to see where students are in regards to state standards for their current grade. Teachers can use this as a way to double check student understanding and if need be provide an intervention in areas that have already been addressed this year but not showing proficiency. There are some concepts that have not been addressed yet this school year and will be addressed before the spring testing starting in April. FAST reading assessment is an indicator for student decoding and fluency and a chance to possibly identify areas for interventions. K-1 also do a math portion on students number recognition and number sense. Some 4th grade students will participate in a national assessment on February 6th. This will be run by the NAEP (National Association of Educational Progress) representatives. Students have been chosen by them and will either participate in a reading or a math portion. Thank you to teachers for the work they do collectively to help our students learn in preparing them for life. Thank you to students and parents for the time you put in to learn. Each child is unique and it takes finding the right tools and North has the dedicated staff to help your child. Thanks for trusting North.
