Message from Mr. Antone
Dear Thoreau Elementary families,
Thoreau Elementary School will start testing beginning April 16, 2018. Thoreau Elementary students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will be taking the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments for English Language Arts and Mathematics. These tests are used to measure student growth in one year’s time. It will also be used to measure the effectiveness of the teachers and principal of the school. As part of the school community, you play an important role in preparing your child for this testing situation. Please have your child in school each day and on-time during the testing period. On behalf of the professional staff of our school, thank you for your continued support in making this a positive experience for our students.
- Students CANNOT be absent or tardy on the testing dates.
- Parents should talk to their children about the importance of doing well on this and any other test
- Students should go to bed to ensure they have at least 8-hours of sleep at night.
- Parents are encouraged to take time and ask their child’s teacher how they can help their children during the test week.
*Thoreau Elementary School front doors will now be locked. Staff will be monitoring front doors at all times.

In the month of MAY , students will learn about the character counts trait, "Most Improved". Most Improved means:
*Achieving goals through commitment and hard work.

Teachers will introduce this trait to students and provide information throughout the month, giving students an opportunity to show traits of Most Improved. Students will be selected for student of the month based on school wide behavior that provides a good example of Most Improved and we will celebrate those students on May 23 at 2:00 PM. You will be notified early that week whether your child has been selected , and invited to attend the recognition celebration to include snacks that you can enjoy with your student.
