Dear Roose Families:
April's character education trait is perseverance - or to keep at it. This is a perfect trait to learn about in April since we begin our M-STEP testing on April 14th.
Students in grades 3-5 will be taking the new M-STEP assessment. As you know, the M-STEP, Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress, is designed as a summative assessment that will test students' knowledge of the current year, as well as previous years' standards. Fifth graders will be testing during the weeks of April 13th, 20th and 27th. Fourth graders will be assessed the weeks of April 27th, May 4th and May 11th if needed. Third graders will be testing the weeks of May 18th and May 25th.
This process is new to the entire state of Michigan. Center Line, like most districts in the county and state, will be taking these assessments on-line. Practice sites and tools have been released to help prepare our students for this type of testing. Our students have also had the advantage of taking the NWEA online for the last several years.
This district will be providing proctors to assist in the labs this year, as we better understand the new assessment process. The M-STEP is designed to assess students at higher depth of knowledge levels. If we continue to teach the state approved standards in a way that engages studetns and requires students to demonstrate their learning, we will be preparing them to be successful on any assessment.
On April 2nd, we have a really fun day planned! We will have "mix it up" at lunch day where students can sit with different students from different grades. We also have our Incentive Day that day--students that haven't had significant behavior issues since the last incentive will be able to listen to our Center Line High School Marching Band. To make sure the day is even more fun--it's Crazy Hair Day! So, please encourage your student to wear crazy hair that day!
Enjoy your spring break with your student! And, as always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Shannon McBrady, EdD
