We just completed our winter NWEA assessment school-wide. We had 56% of our sixth and seventh graders meet their growth goal in reading, and 53% of our eighth graders met their growth goal in reading. In math, 56% of our sixth graders met their growth goal, 55% of seventh graders and 62% of our eighth graders.
Please ensure that your children are reading each night and staying caught up on their assignments. Please be checking your child’s grades at a minimum weekly. If students have any grades below a “C,” please have them stay for study tables.
On Tuesday, February 28th the Davis Eighth Graders will be taking the NAEP Assessment. The NAEP compares our students to students nationwide in reading and math, and is given every other year to fourth, eighth and tenth graders.
The PAWS is in just over a month! We have shortened our PAWS assessment window this year. We will be taking the PAWS assessments March 13, 14, and 15. The 8th graders will take their Science assessments on March 9th. It is critical for students to be here on these days. Please help us by having your students well rested, with a good breakfast and ready to go. If every student at Davis comes ready to give their very best on the PAWS, we will see great things. I encourage parents to have a conversation with their child about giving their best effort on the PAWS. Our attitudes alone can make all the difference in the world.
Thanks for your support. I love being the Principal at Davis Middle School.
