December 6th Announcement

Good Afternoon Gryphons!


Middle School (grades 6-8) MAP Testing:


We will have winter MAP testing beginning next week. These tests are very important for us at Thomas Jefferson. We use these nationally-normed tests to ensure that students are mastering the material that is before them and acquiring the skills that are necessary for academic success. More importantly, these tests help us understand how we can differentiate and personalize education for each of our students as the year progresses. Additionally, we eliminated the beginning-of-the-year MAP testing, and so our winter tests are even more important this year for curriculum planning. Therefore, we ask parents to please encourage their students to do their absolute best on these tests.


Here are our dates of testing:

Wednesday/Thursday, December 11-12: ELA testing
Monday/Tuesday, December 16-17: Math testing
Make-up/Finish-up as needed on Friday, December 13 for ELA and Wednesday, December 18 for Math.
All testing will take place in the ELA/Math teachers’ rooms during regular class periods.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s ELA or math teacher.
