NAEP 2017 Parent/Guardian Notification Letter

Mathematics and reading assessments

February 17, 2017

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Marlboro School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on Monday, February 27. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. It is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessment because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

Rent-a-kid

Do you need help stacking wood or do you have a garden full of weeds? Well, junior high students can help with that. Please call the school phone number 254-2668. Ask for Camilla or Ben for more details.

Open Library

christmas-books-001After seeing the success of the Summer Library Program begun by Jess Weitz (and support from CLiF and the Marlboro Alliance), we would like to invite pre-schoolers, homeschoolers and any other families living in Marlboro to come by on Friday mornings between 10 and 11:30. This is a good time to browse the collection, read to/with your own child and check out books. Students from several classrooms will also be in and out of the library choosing books, but there should be plenty of space for all!
