Winter TAG Testing Feb. 25th

 

TAG

District Wide TAG (Talented and Gifted) Testing ~ Springfield Public Schools

On Saturday, February 25, 2017, Springfield Public Schools will hold their district wide Spring TAG Testing at Ridgeview Elementary School. The TAG test assesses whether or not your child is at the 97%ile or above in the areas of Reading, Math, or Intellectual giftedness. The 97%ile means that if your child was in a line of 100 students, they would know more than the first 97 students in line. These children are at the top of their class, and typically above most students at their entire grade level at school.  If you feel your child may fit into this category, please talk to your child’s teacher and your school’s TAG contact  to refer your child for the spring testing. After you refer them for testing, you will receive a packet from your school with a parent questionnaire and more information about times of testing for your individual child.

If your child is already qualified as TAG, and you feel that your child may need to be accelerated a grade level, you would also speak to your child’s teacher and the TAG contact to refer your child for acceleration. The testing for acceleration will take place Saturday, February 25, 2017, for the above grade level test in Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Reference & Research and/or Social Studies. After testing, we will meet as a team with your school to discuss the next steps and fill out the Iowa Acceleration Scale.

Questions?  Contact: School Rep: Kathy McCumsey at  541-744-6350  or

District Rep: Stephanie Lovdokken at 541-520-4012

Briggs 2016 Helping Our Neighbors Food Drive

Why We Do A Food Drive?

Food for a Food Drive Stays Local

In an average month, 92,000 children eat meals from emergency food boxes.

Since the beginning of the Great Recession in 2008, food box distribution has increased 41%.

Children who are hungry have more difficulty learning in school.

Starting November 28 through December 9th Briggs will be holding our annual Helping Our Neighbors Food Drive!  Please bring non-perishable food or money to your first Core class (6th and 7th grade 1st period, 8th grade 3rd period) to help our own Briggs families and compete with other classes.  In recent years Briggs has been able to provide thirty + families with food for winter Vacation.

Keep the tradition going by giving!

Recommended Items List:

Pasta
Low sugar jams and jellies
Canned tomatoes
Cornmeal
Brown rice
Pint, navy, kidney, or refried beans
Canned tuna, chicken, salmon, corned beef, or other canned meat
Dried fruit
Spaghetti Sauce with Meat
Unsweetened applesauce
Low-sodium broth
Olive oil
Chili or Stew

 

Classroom Contest: HOW IT WORKS

WEB Leaders will collect food from each Core Teacher’s classroom.  Food will be weighed and points tallied.

Each pound of food will be awarded 1 point

-Each pound of Recommended Food will be awarded 2 points.

Each dollar donated will be awarded 2 points.

The 3 classes who earn the most points will win prizes.
