Zentangle

Monday, February 13th

SPS ~ TAG Learn Together Event
630-8:30 at Ridgeview Elementary

526 66th Street, Springfield, Oregon

 

Monday, February 13th is Springfield’s third TAG Learn Together event for the 2016-2017 school year. Each month we bring something new for families and students to enjoy together.

Please join our guest artist Ashely LaVelle, and other TAG families from around the district, as we learn to meditate and process with this easy visual vocabulary of lines, shapes and patterns. Zentangle is meant to teach artful doodling for relaxation. It is easy to learn the basics, but can evolve into a complex work of art!

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

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: Pamala White at 541-744-6383  or

District Rep: Stephanie Lovdokken at 541-520-4012

 

Exámenes TAG (Talentosos y Dotados) para Todo el Distrito ~ Escuelas Públicas de Springfield

El sábado 25 de febrero de 2017, Escuelas Públicas de Springfield ofrecerá en la Escuela Primaria Ridgeview los exámenes TAG para todo el distrito. El examen TAG evalúa si su hijo/a está dentro del percentil 97 o más arriba en las áreas de lectura, matemáticas, o en dote intelectual. El percentil 97 quiere decir que si su hijo/a estuviera en una fila de 100 estudiantes, él o ella sabría más que los primeros 97 estudiantes en la fila.

Estos niños tienen un alto desempeño en su clase y típicamente están más adelantados que la mayoría de los estudiantes en su grado en la escuela. Si usted considera que su hijo/a puede estar dentro de esta categoría, por favor hable con el/la maestro/a de su hijo/a y con el contacto TAG de su escuela para que su hijo/a rinda el examen en el Febrero. Luego de haber solicitado la evaluación, usted recibirá un paquete de la escuela de su hijo/a con un cuestionario para padres de familia y más información sobre las horas en que su hijo/a puede rendir el examen.

Si su hijo/a ya ha calificado como TAG y usted considera que él o ella puede necesitar saltarse un grado, usted debería hablar con el/la maestro/a de su hijo/a y el contacto TAG para que su hijo/a sea evaluado/a para aceleración. Los exámenes de lectura, matemáticas, escritura, ciencias, referencias e investigación y/o estudios sociales para un grado más avanzado tendrán lugar el sábado 25 de febrero de 2017. Después de los exámenes, nos reunimos como equipo con la escuela de su hijo/a para discutir los siguientes pasos y para completar la Escala de Aceleración de Iowa.
Por favor contáctese con la escuela de su hijo/a si tiene alguna pregunta relacionada con el examen para calificar como TAG en el Febrero o con el examen TAG de aceleración.
