MS May 7

MAP Testing
We have our third MAP testing session in the Middle School, May 13 - 17. We will be running a special MAP schedule Monday - Thursday that week, and a regular schedule on the Friday. We have found that this special schedule worked well for our other two testing sessions this school year and allowed the majority of students to complete all tests. You received a detailed email on Monday regarding MAP, please take the time to read it carefully and let me know if you have any questions.

Counselor’s Corner
Over the past month during Cougar Time, we have been exploring the topic of Emotions. Our lessons have included Understanding Emotions, Managing Emotions, Thoughts vs. Feelings, and finished with Mindfulness. I encourage you to ask your child about what s/he has been learning. Here is an article to help you engage your child in a conversation about understanding emotions in  English & Español
