For the remainder of this school year IXL for the other subject areas-Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies, is available for students to practice. They use the same login for IXL Math, but select the subject tab near the top to practice skills for the other areas. Level F are targeted skills for fourth grade.

Your child will need a shoe box for their Science project in 4th quarter. Please bring one in the week we return from break. If you are unable to find one, let me know because I have a few extras.
The fourth graders will be taking the ELA SBA on April 10-12 and April 17-19. There are two tests they will take for ELA-the CAT (Computer Adaptive Test) and PT (Performance Task). The CAT includes multiple choice and response questions, as well as a listening component. The PT is a writing task spread across 2-3 days. They will be asked to read three different sources, answer a question about it and then write either a narrative, informative or opinion piece about the topic.
The Math SBA is scheduled for May 8-10. There is no longer a performance task for math. They will take the CAT Math over 2-3 days.
Students also have one more opportunity to take the HSA Science. This is scheduled for May 1st. A letter with your child's unofficial results will be sent home after the break.
In the meantime, your child can take a look at the kinds of questions they may be asked by going to the online practice test. You can also find the site through our "LINKS" page and click on "OTHER". The Science Practice and SBA Practice links actually take you to the same site and when you log in as a guest, you will be prompted to select which test you'd like to practice.
Please avoid scheduling appointments during the times mentioned above.
