Southworth Mission Statement
Through an active partnership among staff, students, parents, and community members, the mission of Southworth Elementary School is to provide a safe, enjoyable and challenging environment where all children develop the skills and enthusiasm necessary for lifelong learning.
Dear Southworth Families,
This May we begin our State testing for grades 3-6 on our new Smarter Balanced Assessment. We will be kicking this off with an assembly on May 1st to get the kids excited about showing what they know and try to take some of their test anxiety away. Below is a schedule for when students will be taking their exams. Please make sure your student gets plenty of rest the night prior to taking this test and gets a good breakfast. If you have any questions about testing please contact Mr. Cook or your son or daughter’s teacher for more information.
3rd grade: 4th grade: 5th grade: 6th grade:
CAT: Computerized adaptive test
PT: Performance Task (students will be taught a lesson and then take a test based on the concept taught to them)
ELA: English Language Arts (reading and writing)
MSP: Measure of Student Performance (only for science)
