Iowa Testing! Here We Go!
Follow up from Parent Ed Night: Rolling backpacks are approved. Please only take home the textbooks you need for homework each night. Everything does not have to go home every evening, especially during testing week when homework will be very limited.
Testing will begin TUE morning. Please be on time. There are no make up tests. If you miss a day or even part of a day, your test results will not be complete.
FRI will be a School Mass. That means full uniform for all.
On FRI OCT 16, OLA will participate in the first Diocesan multi-site disaster drill. Between 1-1:30, we will get the call to begin. All classes will take their belongings with them and walk to the fire station at the corner of 40th and Electric, where parents will pick students up at the regular time. Permission slips and further details are included in the October tuition envelope. If you do not want your child to participate in this event, they need to be picked up from OLA no later than noon.
Gradelink is our most important form of communication. Please check it weekly at a minimum. If anything needs clarification, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
iPad apps to download (so far) include: Duolingo, Spelling City, Google Drive, Stock Market Game, Yahoo Finance, and iPad Calculator.
All grades need to bring their composition books, pencils, workbooks, and iPads to class every day this week.
There will not be any homework during testing, save for a good night’s sleep and an energizing breakfast.
