Notes & News:

 

MAP Testing: This week we will be starting our MAP testing (more details can be found in the WOH newsletter and school website: https://hls.hopeseattle.org) . This week 2nd grade will be having a practice test on Wed. Oct. 13th, then having our first “real” test on Fri. Oct. 15th. Please make sure your child has plenty of rest, a healthy breakfast and hopefully a positive attitude as well. The test can feel challenging because it pushes students to go as far as they are capable. It is such a valuable tool so it’s important to encourage your child to just show what they know and do their best and that’s all we ask!
