Dear Jane Addams Community,
I hope everyone is doing well on this beautiful sunny day! I know both the students and staff are looking forward to the long weekend! We hope you enjoy.
We wanted to make everyone aware that we will begin the spring administration of the MAP assessments this coming week. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to demonstrate how much they have progressed so far this year. All students, with the exception of those with small group or individual accommodations, will take the assessments with their respective reading and mathematics teachers.
