Does your child ride the bus? The district provides bus transportation to and from school for students. A list of bus stops is published at the beginning of the school year before student registration. Parents/guardians must at the beginning of the school year select a bus stop at which the students to be picked up, and a stop at which a student has to be dropped off. Students are not permitted to ride a bus other than the bus to which they are assigned. Exceptions must be approved in advance by the transportation supervisor. When students are on the bus, they are under the supervision of the bus driver. In most cases, bus discipline problems can be handled by the bus driver. In the case of a written disciplinary referral, student bus problems will be investigated and handled by the transportation supervisor. Parents will be informed of any and all inappropriate student behavior on the bus. Parents are encouraged to discuss bus safety and appropriate behavior with her children before the beginning of the school year and regularly during the year. In the interest of the student safety, students are expected to observe the following rules: Choose a seat and sit in and immediately upon entering the bus. Do not stand in the interest or in the isles. Do not move from one state to another while on the bus. Keep all parts of the body and all objects inside the bus. Loud conversation, singing, boisterous activity, unnecessary noise, or profanity is not allowed. Enter and exit the bus only when the bus is fully stopped. All school rules apply while on the bus, at a bus stop, or waiting for the bus. Use emergency door only in an emergency. In the event of emergency stay on the bus and await instructions from the bus driver. Good behavior and behavior that will not distract the bus driver from operating the bus safely as required. Crowding, pushing, scuffling, and other needless commotion are grounds for disciplinary action. Do not open windows unless Directed to do so by the bus driver. Keep the bus neat and clean. Athletic footwear equipped with cleats or spikes are not allowed on the bus. Inappropriate behavior will be be reported to school authorities and failure to observe safety rules may result in suspension from bus services.

Kris Kienitz is our afternoon secretary at Hemlock Middle School. HMS Principal, Terry Keyser said, “Kris is warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring. She is also very creative and can think “outside of the box”. She is a smiling face for our students and staff. She has worked hard to make our building more inviting with decorated bulletin boards, by posting student and staff birthdays each month in our cafeteria, and decorating various other parts of the building to reflect Huskie Pride.” Kris grew up on a dairy farm in Hemlock and graduated from Hemlock High School. From there she went on to earn an Associate’s degree from Delta College. Kris has two grown children: Courtney (27) and Karen (26). Her favorite place visited is Hawaii. Her 2019 summer highlight is camping. She loves to bake, garden (she’s famous in the area for her pumpkins!) and go camping. Kris’s favorite author is Nicholas Sparks. She worked as a secretary at several other places before joining our team at HMS. Kris is most proud of our students when they are respectful. Karen Stine, middle school secretary said, “We are so blessed to be working side-by-side with such a kind, thoughtful and funny lady. Kris is proud to be a graduate of Hemlock and a resident. She’s creative, has a special bond with students, and cares about them.” For more information about this or other positive happenings at Hemlock Public School District please call (989) 642-5282 or visit us on the web at www.hemlockps.com

STUDENT MEDICATION Taking medication during school hours or during school-related activities is prohibited unless it is necessary for a student’s health and well-being. When a student’s licensed health care provider and parent/guardian believe that it is necessary for the student to take a medication during school hours or school-related activities, the parent/guardian must request that the school dispense the medication to the child by completing a student medical authorization form. The student must submit a completed school-issued medication form that explains what type of medication he/she is taking, proper dosage, and how often it should be given/taken. He/she should turn the form, along with prescription medications, into the office. The form must be signed by a doctor--this is true for prescription and non-prescription medications. Without a completed form, your child will be in violation of our district’s drug policy. The office stores all prescription and non-prescription medication and makes parental arrangements for the time and availability of the medication as well as its administration. All medications must be taken home at the end of the school year. Those left unclaimed will be disposed of. No school or district employee is allowed to administer to any student, or supervise a student self-administration of, any prescription or non-prescription medication until a completed and signed school medication authorization form is submitted by the student’s parent/guardian. This form must be signed by a doctor. This does not include the emergency administration of an epinephrine auto injector (an EpiPen) by a trained school or district employee as provided under state law. No student is allowed to possess or consume any prescription or nonprescription medication on school grounds or at a school-related function. A student may possess an epinephrine auto injector (an EpiPen) and/or an asthma inhaler prescribed for immediate use at the student’s discretion, provided the student’s parent/guardian has completed and signed an authorization for student self-medication form.

If you can name what this piece of technology is, comment back with your answer. First person with the correct answer can claim it as a prize by stopping by the middle school office. A big shout out to Mr. Kunold, who 23 years ago passed this item in the a rookie teacher named Mr. Doan. My hunch is that if you know what this is, you may still have your 8 track collection in your attic and your first "scientific calculator" could do fancy things like add and subtract, multiply and divide.

Absences, excused or unexcused, count against perfect attendance.

Back to School shopping for clothes? Please remember that we have a dress code. Also note that all of our buildings are air-conditioned. The following is our dress code. DRESS FOR STUDENTS IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL Good taste in dress calls for neatness, moderation, modesty and appropriateness. Footwear must be worn at all times. Students are to present themselves, through clothing and appearance, in a manner that encourages themselves, their peers and teachers to focus as completely as possible on teaching and learning while minimizing distractions. 1. Coats: Coats are not to be worn to class. Teachers may make exceptions to this rule if the temperature in the classroom makes it necessary. Adornment: Students are expected to adorn themselves in a manner that encourages themselves, their peers and teachers to focus as completely as possible on teaching and learning while minimizing distractions. This expectation covers jewelry, body art, piercings, and other forms of adornment. Student safety is of paramount concern, for both the student involved and their peers. Hats/head coverings: The wearing of hats/head coverings is not allowed in the school building. If brought to school, they are to be kept in your locker during the school day. 4. Mutilated Clothing: Excessively torn or ripped clothing is not considered acceptable dress. 5. Obscene Clothing: Tasteful dress is expected. Any clothing with sexual innuendos; alcohol, drug, or tobacco products; derogatory comments or caricatures is prohibited. 6. Shirts/Tops: All shirts/tops are to have sleeves and extend past the waistline to completely cover the wearer at all times, regardless of activity. Tanks tops, boat-neck tops that reveal undergarments, sleepwear, loungewear, midriff tops, and see-through tops are some examples of inappropriate shirts/tops. 7. Shorts, Skirts, and Spandex/tights: Shorts and skirts must be tip of finger length at a minimum, as measured with arms extended straight down at the sides. Students must change inappropriate clothes if worn to school. Wearing apparel underneath inappropriate clothing does not make the exterior clothing appropriate, i.e. short skirts/shorts with spandex or tights underneath is not acceptable. Spandex/tights must be worn under school-appropriate clothing, not alone. 8. Oversized and/or Low-Rising Pants/Shorts: Oversized and/or low-rising pants/shorts must be worn in such a way so as to not reveal underwear or portions of the body considered inappropriate or in bad taste. We expect students who wear low-rise pants to wear a shirt or top that covers their waistline at all times, whether sitting, bending, or standing. The use of chain(s) as a belt or wallet protector is prohibited. NOTE: Students may be required to change their appearance and/or clothing or to spend the day in in-school suspension if their attire or appearance is deemed by a staff member to be in violation of the dress code.

This just in: School is more than just academics! What the Research Tells Us: Those who stay in school receive something more than a diploma. It is more than discussing academic subjects like reading, writing and arithmetic. Students who stay in school and finish their high school education possess something non-grads don't have. Something happens in the twelve years of a K-12 school experience that doesn't occur in someone without a diploma. As economist James Heckman (from the University of Chicago) reviewed the results of longitudinal studies, he drew a few conclusions. Those are summarized here: Academic success does not necessarily predict future success in life. Students gain and mature greatly when they remain in a disciplined routine. Improvement and maturity occur in relationship with a cohort of people. Social and emotional learning are a large part of the education process. In other words, there are hidden advantages to staying in school. For more information, go to https://growingleaders.com/blog/the-hidden-advantages-of-staying-in-school/

Just because you want to enjoy the summer months doesn’t mean your child has to stop learning during the summer. Students interested in growth and maintaining their learning through the year, as well as those looking for other options, are the perfect candidates for opportunities through our school district, our local library, through apps such as Freckle, or video games with educational programs like Minecraft for Education. Summer break can still be fun, but it doesn't have to be a vacation from learning.

Ever wonder what goes on at the middle school all summer? Well..it's a time to clean, paint, repair, renovate and renew. In these pictures you'll see Mr. Earle and Mr. Grossmeyer cleaning carpets. You'll also see in-process painting, the mid-process transformation of rooms 10 & 11 (former computer labs) to new math labs, the updating of the woodshop room to our new STEAM room (yes, there will still be a project or two with wood (to utilize design, art, engineering and construction skills), and pics of the ladders, cleaning and painting materials used and pics of the gym and cafeteria walls. If you remember the yellow glazed tiles in the gym, you'll notice those tiles are now the same color as the upper portions of the gym walls. Gym floor is sanded and will get a new cost of finish. Same painting ideals for the cafeteria walls, which once were mismatched following previous bond issue updates creating a mish-mash of glazed tiles colors. Working toward a brighter, nicer, more up to date place to learn!

Tonight was our last PTO Meeting for this school year. We will begin selling frozen lemonade next week at lunches if all goes according to plan. Shooting for Tuesday. It would be great if one or two parents could help Julie Reidsma with that. 11:15-12:45--limited time commitment. Won't interfere with DC fundraiser. We are planning a couple things as we head back to school. Maybe a social gathering at a local spot for interested parents a week or two before school starts? A table set up at Welcome Back to School Night for parents to sign up and get more info? If you have ideas and want to get involved, like and share Hemlock Middle School PTO Facebook page and reply as interested or committed. Spread the word! Thank you!!

A big Thank You to Officer Brian Pitt for talking to our students yesterday about his career in law enforcement, specifically about his specialty, computer forensics. This tied in well with Officer Whitney Meissner's message to our kids last week about internet and phone safety. Brian works for a number of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to fight technology-based crime and did a great job of explaining to our students how data storage and retrieval works on social media, phones and other devices. The big takeaway-nothing ever disappears from the internet and nothing is secret!

Thank you to our local law enforcement agencies for teaming up to bring their full contingent of drug dogs to our high school and middle school today. Saginaw and Bay County Sheriff's Departments, Saginaw Township PD, and coordination with Richland Twp. PD. WORKING TOGETHER TO KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE!! HMS practiced Secure Mode Safety Drill today prior to the dogs' arrival and continued that throughout the visit. FYI- During these visits, the handlers always "plant" some contraband in areas where students are not present as a means of rewarding the dogs for working hard on their search. That also lets us know that the dogs are actively searching and finding any contraband. Good news=no contraband found! (Except for the "plants", of course). Lots of good questions from our kids as well. If parents have any questions about these visits, please contact your child's school principal for more information.

End of the 2nd Marking Period/ 1st Semester is Friday, January 18th. Reminder for 6th, 7th and 8th graders -- Criteria for passing any particular semester of a core curricular class are: Earn a passing grade in each marking period of that particular semester (this is the PRIMARY OPTION) OR Earn a passing grade in at least one marking period in a given semester plus pass a comprehensive semester exam OR (As a final option) Complete online courses in summer school. All classes of this nature should be attempted only after failing to pass a regular class offering or unless approved by the principal. This type of class has attendance rules and a cost. Students who fail a marking period are allowed to retake previously failed assessments to earn a passing marking on those failed assessments in order to pass the marking period. As a prerequisite to this, the student must have satisfactorily completed all work included in the unit preceding the assessment. This must happen within five (5) days following the last day of the first three marking periods OR within the final 10 days of the fourth marking period. In semester 2 of 8th grade, students must pass each core course without retakes--this is in preparation for high school expectations.

Our 8th grade girls basketball team finished the season as strong as they started. Last night the girls defeated Alma 50 - 20. They finish the year with an outstanding record of 11-1. As a coach I could have never asked more of these 9 girls. I am so proud of each and every one of the girls. They were amazing all year, giving their best in every practice and every game. They are dedicated and love the game....and it showed whenever they took the court. I want to thank my girls for a wonderful season. But most important thank you for showing the true meaning of "team." I will miss watching our dominate the court, but most important I will miss what we have been, "TOGETHER." - Love - Coach Olinger. Their stats for last night rocked the court. Reagan Finkbeiner "Rags, " scored 15 points and had 9 steals. Breanna Turner, "Cupid," had 10 points and 5 steals. Chloe "Weseasl" Watson ended the season with 8 points and 4 steals. Ella "Pips" Wardlow finished with 7 points and 7 rebounds. Izzy "Zeik" Loucks dominated under the basket with 10 rebounds and 2 points. Alyssa "Smiles" Dearman finished her last game with 4 points. Charli "Charles" Munger put up 2 points as well as Averi "Smalls" Hall. And Morgan "Walle" gave it her all to end the season.

How do we share important procedural and policy information with students? One of the ways we do this is using a Monday Morning Meeting (MMM) assembly. Every student comes to the gym first thing and I speak to all of them together. Today's MMM began with a Google Slides review of some handbook rules and then ended with an introduction to the OK2Say program. OK2Say is a State-sponsored program and is explained in the final slides of the Slides program you can view at the following link-- https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1z4mUxd931lp8zUmFcoy9ygiE4ow90zGjTSUg949Ibfw/edit?usp=sharing. Simply click the link in the final slide to view the OK2Say promo. We will be publicizing this program in several ways--one of the ways is to share OK2Say videos with our students during the coming months along with school rules that parallel the program objectives. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1z4mUxd931lp8zUmFcoy9ygiE4ow90zGjTSUg949Ibfw/edit?usp=sharing

What Can a Parent Do To Best Help Their Teen in School and in Life? Being a parent can be a tough job. Being a kid can be tough as well. So...what can a parent do to help their child on the road to solving their problems, accepting responsibility, and becoming an independent thinker and problem solver? How old is your child? School age kids: start practicing now! Let your kid do the talking as often as possible: ordering at restaurants, asking for directions, or calling a friend on the phone to ask for a playdate instead of arranging it yourself via text message. High school kids: while there is still room for parental involvement at this age, insist that your child attempt all communication on her own first. If she needs to miss a quiz and do a make-up, have her make the arrangements with the teacher, and only intervene AFTER she has made the first attempt on her own. If she has a conflict between track practice and music lessons, have her discuss the possibilities with the involved groups, then have her make the decision and deal with the potential consequences. Kids of all ages: TRUST your kid to do well, and tell her repeatedly that you believe that she can make good decisions on her own. Give her room to make mistakes, even major ones sometimes, and learn from them together. As parents, we will inevitably watch our kids struggle, feel uncomfortable and even fail. As painful as that can be, you aren’t doing your child any favors by trying to shield her from this part of life or solve her problems for her. Instead, give her opportunities to learn strength and self-confidence, so she can handle future challenges with grace.

Parents-please remember that State of Michigan law prohibits us from administering any medication, prescription or over the counter-without a completed medication form signed by a physician. We realize that this over the counter physician signature requirement is new, but we are obligated to follow the law. You received both forms in your Welcome Back to School folder, copied on opposite sides of the same sheet of paper. See the attached pictures of the form.

PROCESS FOR STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICKUP AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL--We are putting in place some guidelines that we believe will make student drop off and pick up from cars easier for parents and safer for all concerned. Please follow these rules out of respect for everyone involved--kids and parents. Using the map below as your guide for traffic pattern: 1) Please ensure that your child is prepared to quickly exit your vehicle on the side closest to the sidewalk--backpack in hand, seat belt undone, everything needed in their hands. The time to give last minute instructions is prior to entering the drop zone. 2) Pull your vehicle ahead as far as possible toward the west end of the parking lot before you stop and your child exits your vehicle. Do not stop in the east end of the loop or make multiple stops in the loop. When you have pulled ahead as far as possible, all students exit the vehicle quickly at the same time. 3) The drop off and pickup pattern is now marked by yellow arrows. Drive only in the areas indicated by the arrows painted on the parking lot and illustrated in the picture below. Do not cut across parking spaces. 4) As much as possible, keep the line moving so everyone can get thru as safely and quickly as possible. 5) If a child needs more time to remove projects, etc. then follow the arrows to park in a marked parking space to allow time to remove those items. Use caution when in the parking spaces and when leaving them--no one needs to leave the lot so quickly that it is worth it to damage a vehicle or injure a child in the process. 6) Instruct your child to always be aware of cars in their vicinity to ensure that they can move toward the building safely. 7) If your child walks or rides their bike to school, have them follow the sidewalk down Maple Street to where it ends, then skirt the parking lot by going west on the grass to the west end of the parking lot and then go north across the grass outside of the parking lot area to reach the sidewalk. At the end of the day, have them wait a few minutes for traffic to clear and then skirt the parking lot on the grass to reach the sidewalk. 8) If the process of student drop off and pick up is causing too big of a delay in your morning routine, consider leaving earlier (or later) to avoid the rush between 7:30-7:40 when most students tend to arrive. With your cooperation and consideration, the beginning and end of day traffic pattern can become safer, quicker and smoother for all concerned.

Hemlock Middle School is looking for Parent Advisers for Career Exploration We are looking for parents and other volunteers who would like to share their career information with our Hemlock Middle School students. We are targeting 7th and 8th graders with this program, although if the presenter chooses, we can extend this to another grade--6 or 8. Our program goal is to help our students develop career Individual Development Plans that they can use to think about career options that might interest them, assess their strengths and interests, guide their high school course selections, make post-secondary career and education plans and expand their horizons for work and education. Presentations should be short (20 minutes or so), as interactive as possible, include visual aids (objects, video, audio, pictures, typical work dress, etc.), and designed to show students the positives in pursuing the presented career choice/career pathway. We are hoping to help our students examine: What are my goals? What am I good at? What type of work do I enjoy? What kind of work–life balance do I want for my future? What does a successful career entail? Do I need additional training to pursue this career? Do I have interests and/or skills that I could use in this career? We are aiming to get as many different careers as possible presented to our students. No career is too small or too big. We hope to cover all the various Career Pathways found at https://www.michigan.gov/documents/pathways_8310_7.html Please join us in this effort by completing our survey below. https://goo.gl/forms/lf6PefnQtHTe4WgX2

7 Tips to Mentally Prepare Your Child for the School Year Kids will be heading back to school before we know it! Whether your child is excited about the new year or dreading it, this period of time is always an adjustment. So how can parents help kids get mentally prepared for the new school year? Here are a few tips to help: 1. TALK EARLY AND OFTEN It's never too early to start talking with and listening to your children about the first day of school. Ask them what they think school will be like and see if they have any specific concerns so that you'll have time to address it over the next couple of weeks. It's totally normal to have first day jitters. 2. GO TO THE ORIENTATION If your child's school is hosting an orientation, take advantage of it. Often children are worried that they won't know how to get to the bathroom, where to eat lunch, or how to get to a locker. If your school doesn't offer one or you are unable to make it, ask the teacher if it would be possible to stop by for a visit. Teachers are usually in their classrooms prepping for the new school year in advance. 3. MEET THE TEACHER For kids, wondering if they'll like their teacher is a big source of fear. If your child isn't comfortable in the teacher's classroom, he or she will be less likely to be ready to learn. Many teachers will make themselves available for a phone call or will return an email if a visit isn't possible. 4. FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN, READ BOOKS OR WATCH EDUCATIONAL CARTOONS These materials can help children read about and see what a typical day will consist of and what they will learn in school. Some good examples are Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten by Slate, The Night Before First Grade by Wing, and Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School by Parish. 5. SET UP SCHOOL ZONES AND EXPECTATIONS Establish a location for backpacks and distraction-free homework zones at home. Setup homework and study times to help manage expectations and establish good routines. 6. TAKE YOUR KIDS SHOPPING WITH YOU Your kids will be more excited to use their back-to-school supplies if they picked them out. Doing so will help them feel prepared and will also provide an opportunity to talk about how the new supplies might be used in the coming year. 7. PRACTICE YOUR NEW ROUTINE Both children and adults can benefit from practicing your new routine. Stage a morning dry run to see how long it takes you and your children to get out of the door in the morning. It will not only help you predict how early you and your kids need to get up, but your children will benefit from learning what to expect each week day. It's important for parents to remember that first day jitters are completely normal and can be relieved with some mental preparation leading up to the big day. Like with many things, their worries are likely related to the fear of the unknown. Talking about where things are and what will be different will go a long way to help reduce your child's concerns.

Use MDE’s Handy Locator Map App to Find Summer Meals Spots June 15, 2018 LANSING – Free, healthy meals are available to Michigan children over the summer break under the Michigan Department of Education’s (MDE) Meet Up and Eat Up program. “It’s vitally important that kids continue to eat nutritious meals over the summer to keep them healthy and fueled to continue learning while they’re out of school,” Interim State Superintendent Sheila Alles said. Those up to 18 are eligible for the meals at dozens of schools and other locations statewide. Also eligible are persons, regardless of age, determined by MDE or a local school district to be mentally or physically disabled and who participate in a public or non-profit, private school program established for such persons. The MDE’s summer food service program was created to ensure that children in lower-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during school breaks, when they do not have access to the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs. To find the nearest Meet Up and Eat Up site, use the MDE’s locator map at www.michigan.gov/meetupeatup, or text ‘Food’ to 877-877, enter your city and state or ZIP Code, and the address is sent to your phone. Those most sites serve meals weekdays, some serve them on weekends, too. Meal types and serving times also are available at the website. Breakfast, lunch, snack and supper are served, depending on location. Eligible persons may go to any site; no identification is required. More information is available at www.michigan.gov/sfsp.

M-STEP testing for grades 5 and 8 starts during the week of April 9. Why does this M-STEP test matter for my child? M-STEP is designed to help parents understand how their child is progressing toward career- and college-readiness. It is also a tool to help parents understand where their child needs more support or additional challenges. What will my child experience during M-STEP testing? M-STEP is an online test that uses various types of questions to assess real-world skills, such as critical thinking and problem solving. M-STEP tests for English language arts and mathematics use Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) for students in grades 3 through 8. CAT adjusts the difficulty of grade-level questions throughout the assessment based on the student’s responses. If a student answers a question correctly, the next question will be harder; if a student answers incorrectly, the next question will be easier.

Where does M-STEP fit in our teaching and assessment system? M-STEP is just one of the types of assessment tools our district uses to inform classroom teaching and measure progress toward preparing our students to be college- and career-ready. In the classroom, teachers use FORMATIVE assessment practices to continually monitor learning and adjust instruction. For example, Kahoot, Quizlet, Front Row, Khan Academy, and Accelerated Reader and Edgenuity are used for self-assessment, feedback, and goal setting. Our district also occasionally administers INTERIM/BENCHMARK assessment(s) to monitor progress and inform instructional decisions. In our district, we measure progress using District Common Course Exams, tests associated with our textbooks, and NWEA MAP.

Parents of 6th, 7th and 8th graders: “Ms. Finch has taken a leave of absence. To make sure that our students get all the best educational and M-STEP assessment experiences as possible, we have arranged for Mr. Stedry to take over the eighth grade math classes. For seventh grade, we have a terrific new teacher for the remainder of the year, Ms. Bondy. Ms. Bondy he did her student teaching at Swan Valley and is a math major, which means she is highly trained and experienced to lead our students for the remainder of the year. I know both Mr. Stedry and Ms. Bondy will both do a great job.” Should you have any questions about this, feel free to contact Mr. Keyser or Mrs. Gronski or Mr. Killingbeck at our board of education office.

What is M-STEP testing like for students? Most students in grades 3-8 take the M-STEP on a computer instead of using bubble answer sheets and multiple-choice tests. This allows students to show critical thinking, problem solving, and deeper understanding. English language arts (ELA) and mathematics assessments use online Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT), which helps reduce the time students spend testing. In fact, each student is expected to spend no more than 4-8 hours on state assessments, depending on grade level. This represents less than one-half of one percent of our district’s annual instructional time. CAT also provides a more customized testing experience for students and a more precise measurement of what students know. Under state and federal law, all student are required to take a state assessment annually each spring. Most students in grades 3-8 take the M-STEP, which is our state’s summative evaluation, meaning that its primary use is to tell us how well our district’s curriculum and instruction align to Michigan’s rigorous standards. The state also uses the data from the M-STEP in their efforts to hold schools accountable.

PARENTS and STUDENTS: M-STEP testing begins the week of April 9. This test is very important to our students, our teachers and our district. We expect full effort and maximum success from each student and have worked each day for months to be prepared to do our best. Attendance during this important testing period is essential for success. Fifth and eighth graders test in English, Math, Science and Social Studies during the weeks of April 9, 16 and 22. Sixth and seventh graders will test in English and Math during the first three weeks of May. Specific test dates will follow after we return from Spring Break. Please watch this 3 minute video about the M-STEP test, how to prepare for it, and how to be successful on it.

M-STEP testing is right around the corner! Below you will find important information for parents and students about testing.  Our students in grades 3-8 will take the Michigan Test for Education Michigan (M-STEP) in Spring 2018.  The 2018 M-STEP will have the same modern features as last year’s M-STEP.  Our students the test online using their Chromebooks.  Depending on grade, M-STEP requires on average a total of 3-7 hours, or less than one percent of student instructional time, to complete.  Students in grades 9 and 10 will take the PSAT, which prepare them for the SAT taken in grade 11. (NOTE: Starting in 2019, students in grade 8 will also be taking the PSAT, as well as M-STEP science and social studies)  Students in grade 11 will take the SAT, which will serve as both a college entrance and the state English language arts (ELA) and mathematics assessment. They will also take science and social studies M-STEP tests and the ACT WorkKeys work skills assessment.  M-STEP testing will begin after most spring breaks and end before Memorial Day.  Schools will have flexibility in scheduling the amount of time students spend in a single test session.  Schools will have access to preliminary student test results within a few days after testing is complete. This preliminary data is a first look, for school use only, until final results are available.  Final results—including M-STEP parent reports—should be available to schools prior to the beginning of the next school year.  The M-STEP uses Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) for the ELA and mathematics assessments given in grades 3 through 8.  CAT provides a more customized testing experience for students and a more precise measurement of what students know.  CAT adjusts the difficulty of grade-level questions throughout the assessment based on the student’s responses. If a student answers a question correctly, the next question will be harder; if a student answers incorrectly, the next question will be easier.  Balancing questions this way ensures students are engaged and challenged, but not overwhelmed. CAT also improves test security, since all students don’t all get the same questions.

PARENTS: You can help your child get ready for the M-STEP testing that begins the week of April 9. You can: Find out the facts: To start, review the Michigan Department of Education’s Parent/Student Information at: www.michigan.gov/mstep, which includes valuable information on state assessments and the Spring testing calendar. Talk to your child about testing: Let them know that assessment is a regular part of learning. Make sure they understand why they are being tested and how it is important to their future. Keep state tests in perspective: Reduce your child’s anxiety about the test by reminding them that it is just one measure of learning, and another way to find out where their academic strengths and weaknesses are. Remind them of what they do well, and how they have improved with effort. Take a look at the state practice opportunities and encourage your child to practice at home: Not only will this help you better understand the types of questions your child will be answering, it will help familiarize your child with the test format and features. If your child is struggling, let the teacher know so when your child takes the test, the focus can be more on test content and less on test navigation. Links to the below information can be found at www.michigan.gov/mstep in the parent/student section. Elementary and middle school M-STEP sample test items can be found at: www.michigan.gov/mstep/ Make sure that your child is well rested and eats a high protein, low sugar/carb breakfast: Children who are tired, hungry or have too much sugar and carbs are less able to pay attention in class or to handle the demands of a test. Remember—Attending school matters: Tests reflect children’s overall knowledge and achievement. Missing school means missing instruction.

Many thanks to Richland Twp. DPW, David Garcia, Hemlock Family Dollar store manager and several Family Dollar customers for their generous donations of bottled water this week. Following work on our water main, we were left without drinking water the past 3 days. These benefactors ensured that our students and staff had bottled water to drink each day. Many thanks for your generosity!

Hello: As promised on Sunday, this link takes you to an idea we will be using to honor the Parkland school victims while taking steps to make improvements in our own school climate. I went over this with all of our students this morning. I will follow up with it day by day going forward and we will honor those who lost their lives in Parkland on March 14. It would be terrific if anyone who sees this would take steps to include themselves in these positive actions. Thank you in advance for your support of our students and our community. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1JR_xA4y2KyRJA5g1wcbdlNgth6N0JBq4ZvUZipFDUaE/edit?usp=sharing
