Weekly Parent Letter February 5, 2024

February 5, 2024

Dear Parents and Guardians,

“Brothers and sisters: If I preach the gospel, this is no reason for me to boast, for an obligation has been imposed on me, and woe to me if I do not preach it.” 

As disciples of Jesus, spreading the gospel in word and deed is a way to serve God. Following the example of St. Paul, let us accept this responsibility readily.  For serving the Lord is not a task or a chore, but an honor and a joy.

Praise the Lord,

Ms. Danielle Gonzalez

MAP Growth scores help teachers check student performance by measuring achievement and growth. 

MAP Growth tests are unique and adapt to your child’s responses to measure your child’s knowledge. If your child answers a question correctly, the next question is more challenging. If they answer incorrectly, the next one is easier. These results will provide a more complete picture of where your child is on their learning journey— regardless of whether they are on, above, or below their grade level.

Since MAP Growth tests provide immediate and accurate information about your child’s learning, it’s easy for teachers to identify students with similar scores in similar skills and topics and then plan instruction accordingly.

We are truly excited to focus on your child’s individual growth and achievement. For more information about MAP Growth, visit NWEA.org/familytoolkit.
