Washburn School will Administer MAP GROWTH ADAPTIVE TESTS to 2nd to 12th Grade Students from Our Computer Lab
Washburn School will be administering Map Growth adaptive tests and student assessments to 2nd to 12th-grade students from our Computer Lab at Washburn School three times a year starting this year. Second to Twelfth-grade students will be taking adaptive tests in Science, Math, Spanish, Reading, and English three times a year. These adaptive tests will allow us to see your child's progress over time, and we intend to continue the testing every year for the foreseeable future at Washburn School. As a parent, you will be able to see if your child is improving over time and learning grade-level material. The tests could show you if your child is below, on or above their grade level. It also allows us to compare ourselves to schools across the United States in different school districts and to thousands of international students to see where they are at in comparison.
All the teachers and administration voted and evaluated the students using a nominee and evaluation system throughout the month! We had some ties this month in votes within our faculty! We have been celebrating this activity since the year 2003!

La familia de Washburn School se une a la pena que embarga a la familia de nuestros estudiantes Jan Pagán Pagán, su hermana Karol Pagán Pagán y su padre Jorge Pagán Ortiz ante la irreparable pérdida de su señora madre, Dulcilia Pagán Acosta. Elevemos una oración al todopoderoso para que le brinde paz y fortaleza en este momento tan difícil. Dulcilia fue una madre ejemplar para nuestra comunidad de Washburn School. Siempre estaba disponible para apoyar, ayudar y dar amor. Dulcilia fue muy querida por todos los que tuvieron el privilegio de conocerla y nos deja con un gran legado de amor, fe y que en la vida siempre hay esperanza. Que descanse en paz.
