Bingo Night Coming Soon!!!

Bingo Night planning is underway!  Event will be Friday April 28th 6-8:00 pm

We are looking for volunteers to coordinate the following:
Food (catered this year so easy)
Volunteers (keeping track of volunteers we send to you)
Dessert Auction (we get donations, you coordinate)
Ticket Sales (pre & night of event)
None of these positions require a ton of time or work. You are just coordinating and working closely with April Uffens & Summer Highfill. We would LOVE to get some 6th grade parents involved or TMS parents with additional little ones eventually coming to TMS. This way they can help train future volunteers. Most all the coordinators from last years BINGO are 8th grade parents this year. Please message April Uffens either on Facebook or apriluffens@comcast.net with questions.

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 oftesting 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: Brandy Selby at 541-744-6368 or District Rep: Stephanie Lovdokken at 541-520-4012
