South Lawrence East Elementary Events

Teacher at computer

The South Lawrence East Elementary is about to start Fall testing. Every year, our students take the “MAP” test in reading and in math. This is a growth measure and allows us to identify the current levels of our students, identify areas of strengths and areas in need of more support, and plan for instruction. Our students will take the “MAP” test two times this year…They will take this in the Fall and Spring.

With us being remote, this will be more challenging, but we are going to try our best to get this very important data.

We will hold 2 informational meetings to share more about this important test. We would love to see you attend one of the 2 meetings if you are able.

The meetings will be held on,

Wednesday, September 30th at 2:00

Thursday, October 1st at 10:00
