Aug Prep Weekly Reminders and Updates 4/19-4/25/21

No School

Thursday, April 22 & Friday, April 23

Dear Aug Prep Families,

We are so thankful for your partnership as we continue to navigate such an unusual school year. We appreciate all you have done to support your student(s), and Aug Prep staff on this journey. 

You may recall that we sent a survey in December. We use this data to get your insight into Aug Prep and direct our next steps. We use the results to find needed resources, enhance communication, go deeper with areas of success and drive changes. Our families are Aug Prep’s most important partner in our students’ education!

Please take some time to fill out the survey. Remember that the survey is anonymous unless you place your name in the comments. (Please add your name and contact information in the survey if you would like specific follow-up regarding something.)

There will be an opportunity in this survey to answer questions by school level - you only need to fill out this survey ONCE regardless of how many students you have at Aug Prep.

Please fill out the survey (English version) here by May 4

Thank you for your partnership.

Your City. Your School. Aug Prep.

Warmly,

Abby Andrietsch

Aug Prep School President

Estimadas familias de Aug Prep,

Estamos muy agradecidos por su asociación mientras continuamos navegando en un año escolar tan inusual. Agradecemos todo lo que ha hecho para apoyar a su(s) estudiante(s) y al personal de Aug Prep en este viaje.

Tal vez recuerde que enviamos una encuesta en diciembre. Usamos estos datos para obtener su percepción sobre Aug Prep y dirigir nuestros próximos pasos. Usamos los resultados para encontrar los recursos necesarios, mejorar la comunicación, profundizar en las áreas de éxito e impulsar cambios. ¡Nuestras familias son el socio más importante de Aug Prep en la educación de nuestros estudiantes!

Tómese un tiempo para completar la encuesta. Recuerde que la encuesta es anónima a menos que ponga su nombre en los comentarios. (Agregue su nombre e información de contacto en la encuesta si desea un seguimiento específico con respecto a algo).

Habrá una oportunidad en esta encuesta para responder preguntas por nivel de escuela; solo necesita completar esta encuesta UNA VEZ, independientemente de cuántos estudiantes tenga en Aug Prep.

Por favor complete la encuesta (versión en español) aquí antes del 4 de mayo

Gracias por su asociación.

Tu Ciudad. Tu Escuela. Aug Prep.

Sinceramente,

Abby Andrietsch

Presidente de la Escuela Aug Prep

Elementary School Testing Dates - Parents, please mark your calendars!

Dear Aug Prep 3rd-5th Grade Families,

Thank you for your continued partnership and support! We pray that this message finds you well and healthy. We are so excited for our students to take the Forward Assessment.  The Forward Assessment is a state test given to all 3rd-8th and 10th graders. The Wisconsin Forward assessment measures the knowledge and skills your students should have acquired by the time they reach each grade level.  The results of this test will be used to help school staff make determinations or placement in classes to best support your child(ren). The Forward also provides us with data on how we are performing in relation to other schools in our city and state; this testing also impacts our school report card.  Our 3rd and 5th graders take this assessment in reading and math, and 4th graders take this assessment in reading, math, social studies, and science.  There are several tests for each subject area.  In-Person students will take the test in their homeroom classes during the school day. Virtual students must come to the building to complete the test. Required testing dates by grade level are below:

Testing Dates (In-Person  students)

3rd Grade:  4/20 (reading)  4/21 (Math)

  1. Parents should check that their child is not exhibiting symptoms or has had contact with anyone who has ***d positive for COVID prior to coming to school.  Please note that all staff is also required to complete screening/temperature checks. If your scholar or a family member has symptoms or has had contact as of or after March 15th. We ask that you complete the COVID Reporting Form.  If your child has traveled by plane, we also ask that you complete the COVID Reporting Form.   Parents will be directed to pull up in front of the school between 7:45-8:10AM.  Scholars will be temperature checked prior to leaving their car. Walkers will be screened upon arrival and parents will be contacted to pick their scholar up if they do not pass screening procedures. Scholars will need to be in their assigned classroom by 8:10AM.

  2. We will require scholars to wear masks at all times and ask that scholars bring an extra mask if they would like to change their mask mid day.

  3. In order to ensure social distancing, we will have no more than 16 scholars in a classroom.  For scholars that will be in bigger groups, we will use the Commons and ensure we follow social distancing precautions.  Groups in the Commons will not exceed 30 students. Breakfast and lunch will be served in the classroom.

Middle school scholars will not be dismissed until 3:30PM on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 11:30AM on Wednesday.   Parents will be directed to park in the new parking lot, staff parking lot, or on the street. If you are using Pik my Kid for your younger child, we ask that you park in a lot or the street afterwards to wait for your middle school scholar.  Please do not come to the main entrance to take them to your vehicle.  We will escort them directly to you on these testing days.  If your scholar is walking, please give written consent via e-mail to sburnett@augprep.org  Note: We will not be able to dismiss scholars early as we do not want to disrupt the testing environment.

  • As we will need several staff members present to supervise your scholars, we will not offer virtual special classes (Bible, Forensics, Art, Music, Spanish, or Gym/PE). During this time, your scholars should work on ALEKs or projects and arrive at their next scheduled class on time.

Enclosed is an Informational Brochure for Families which gives more information about the assessment including its purpose, what scores will be provided, and how the scores will be used.

Please encourage your son or daughter to take the test seriously and do the best they can. If you have any additional questions, please contact me at (414) 810-1380 or kneiman-marx@augprep.org
