Bulldog Bites

      from the elementary school                                  

_______________________________________________________

Week of March 19-23

  • The 5th and 6th grade performance of Mary Poppins Jr. will be on March 22 & 23 at 7:00 on the elementary gym stage.  Tickets cost $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for students and seniors.

  • Wisconsin Forward Assessment: The Wisconsin Forward Exam is designed to gauge how all students are doing in relation to the Wisconsin Academic Standards.  These standards outline what students should know and be able to do in order to be college career ready. The Forward Exam is administered online in the spring of each school year at:
    • Grades 3-8 in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics
    • Grades 4 and 8 in science and,

    • Grades 4,8, and 10 in social studies.

    Williams Bay Elementary School students in grades 3-5 will participate in these assessments between April 16-May 1.  We have been working with students to prepare for these assessments using test taking strategies for content areas as well as social emotional strategies.  Teachers have also been working with students using test preparation booklets to help student become familiar with the types of vocabulary and questions they will experience when taking these assessments.  

    We take all assessments very seriously.   Results provide information about student performance, allowing teachers to target instruction to student needs.  Assessment results also enable teachers to reflect upon their own instructional practices. Students, administrators and parents also gain valuable information that provides a better understanding of what students know and what we can do to support and assist them.  Sample or practice test questions can be found at http://dpi.wi.gov/assessment/forward/sample-items.  There is also an online tools training that are available for students and is intended to give students the opportunity to practice with the tools available on the Forward Exam.  More information regarding the Wisconsin Forward Exam will be shared with families in the near future. Families who are interested in more information are welcome to contact the Office of Student Assessment at osamail@dpi.wi.gov 

  • Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy Arbor Day Event:  We will be planting trees at KNC on Thursday April 26.  Busses have been arranged to transport all students to KNC in the morning to plant trees from 10:00-11:45.  All students should bring a sack lunch to school on April 26 to have a picnic when we return from planting trees.
