SBAC SCHEDULING CHANGE - 7th and 8th Grades

Next week we are going to have a change in our testing schedule.  The district has provided us with an additional cart of 32 computers for testing this spring and so we will be able to test all 7th and 8th graders at the same time.  This will be much better for our students because it will only interrupt one week of their normal schedule instead of two.    The new schedule for 7th and 8th grade Smarter Balanced Testing is as follows:

Tuesday, May 5th: ELA Computer Adaptive Test

Wednesday, May 6th: ELA Performance Task

Thursday, May 7th: Math Computer Adaptive Test

Friday, May 8th: Math Performance Task

Please call, (206)252-1929, or email AP Holly Mosimann, hkthomas@seattleschools.org, with any questions or concerns.

Thursday, May 7th - MS Band performs at Madrona K-8, 7pm

Blaine band members will be heading to Madrona K-8 where they will be participating in a collaborative concert.

Advanced band students at Madrona and Blaine will be performing music that they learned over the past year on
May 7th at 7pm in the Madrona gym. Kevin Williams and Matt Okun will be conducting a variety of pieces from classical to jazz, and even Mr. Williams’ own arrangement of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop”.

We are all looking forward to this opportunity for our students to share their musical talents in such a positive
way. Everyone is invited!
