The Stanton Community Schools will administer the Iowa Assessments beginning Friday, February 5th to all students in grades 1-11.
The purpose of the Iowa Assessments is to provide the school with information and to help teachers make sound educational decisions about student's learning. The scores will allow teachers to check each student's year-to-year growth and to identify each child's strongest and weakest areas of achievement. When test results are used in conjunction with teacher observation and other information from the classroom, teachers and parents can work together to identify and address the educational needs of each student.
Just as in the everyday school activities, you can help your child do their best by seeing that he/she is fully rested. This year, like last year, all students in grades Kindergarten through twelfth will be offered breakfast on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday of the testing week. This breakfast will be at no cost to the students and ALL STUDENTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO GO DOWN FOR THE BREAKFAST BUT DO NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE SERVING LINE IF THEY DO NOT WANT TO EAT BREAKFAST AT SCHOOL. The breakfast is being offered to those who would like to eat breakfast at school. The Stanton PTSO, along with the school, has generously offered to donate funds to help cover the cost of breakfast for the students. The menu for the 3 days is as follows:
Tuesday, Feb 9-Breakfast Pizza. Muffin, Juice, Milk
Wednesday, Feb 10-Sausage Gravy & Biscuit. Juice, Milk
Friday, Feb 5-Pancake and Sausage on A Stick, Juice, Milk
