ACT Aspire Testing Next Week/Field Trips

Parents and Scholars,
April 30-May 4 are important dates at our campus. This is when scholars will take ACT Aspire tests (required by the State) and also attend field trips. We will have brown bag lunches available for $5 at the Jones Center to accommodate the various times of when scholars finish testing and return from the field trips. Scholars may bring their own lunch as well. Scholars should have paid for the train field trip by now. Every scholar is expected to go unless they have provided a medical reason why they cannot to Ms. B by now. There will be an assignment given at the end of the day regarding the trip that will be due at the beginning of class the following day. Scholars who do not attend the field trips will get an unexcused absence an no credit on the field trip assignments. Anyone with questions about this should contact Ms. B.

The schedule will be:

April 30th – 7th scholars will test from 7:55 am to Noon (later for accommodated scholars) while 8/9/10 scholars will go to Crystal Bridges to view the Art of Architecture exhibition and return @ noon for lunch. The afternoon will consist of blocks 1 and 2 for an hour each.

May 1st – 7th scholars will test from 7:55 am to Noon (later for accommodated scholars) while 8/9/10 scholars will walk to the Springdale Depot, tour the museum, take a train ride to Johnson, and return back to the Jones Center for lunch. Scholars will need to pay their $7 fee for the train trip to Mrs. Cox. Scholars with financial needs must speak to Ms. B. All scholars are expected to go on the trip unless they have a doctor’s medical note as to why they cannot. The afternoon will consists of blocks 3 and 4 for an hour each.

May 5th – We hope to return to a normal schedule if all scholars have been here to test.

If a scholar arrives late, they will have to stay with Mrs. Cox. If they are a test taker, we will try to work them into the next session. If they were to go on the field trip, they will set with Mrs. Cox in a quiet area and get a 0 on the field trip assignment. All scholars should be at the Jones Center by 8:00 AM.

Scholars will leave backpacks at school when on field trips. Scholars taking tests are not allowed to have any electronic devices/SMART watches/Fitbit watches/phones, etc with them in the test taking environment. They can place them in their backpack and turn off all phones; they will retrieve them after testing.
