Now that we are all refreshed from our February break, the class will be gearing up for the upcoming Next Generation MCAS testing. The English Language Arts testing will take place Tuesday April 25-Thursday April 27. Math will take place Tuesday May 9- Wednesday May 10. The students will receive instruction on taking a computer based test. The whole fourth grade will also participate in mock testing to ensure they are adequately prepared and alleviate any apprehension the students may have in regards to the NGMCAS.
Parent/Teacher conferences is quickly approaching as well and I am looking forward to seeing you all again! Don't forget, in order to make an appointment you must log onto the Parent Portal.
Again, your student should be showing you their agenda for homework every night and asking you to initial the date. This way, I know that you are aware of what the homework is and when it is due. It is the students' responsibility, however, a gentle reminder wouldn't hurt as I have a very low percentage in class getting the agendas signed. Reminder: in order to chaperone for field trips, you must not only fill out a CORI form (every year) but you also MUST get fingerprinted. You can have it done at IdenToGo Brockton. The cost for fingerprints of a non-educator will be $35, and you will need the DESE code for Stoughton Public Schools. The code is 02850000. You can make an appointment by calling 886-349-8130 or visiting their website at www.indentogo.com/FP/Massachusetts.aspx ****PLEASE BE AWARE THAT CORI FORMS NEED A MINIMUM OF 10 DAYS TO COMPLETE THE PROCESS
Best Regards, Ms. Morrison Head Genius
