  6. During the first few weeks of school, your child took a MAP® Growth™ test. MAP® Growth tests are computer-adaptive tests created by NWEA® that students take two to three times per school year to determine their instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year (and from year to year) in math (K-8th) and reading (3rd-8th).  The scores report is available to you through Family Access. To view the report, log in to Skyward Family Access and click on Report Card/Portfolio. The attachment is titled Fall 2021 NWEA-MAP Scores. Included in this attachment is a letter of explanation, a sample report, and your students' scores. Please reach out to your campus principal if you have any questions about NWEA® MAP® testing.

  7. Coming soon is CSES Healthy Habits Week.  We are excited for this week!  Click here for information regarding the dress-up days. 

  8. Friday, October 29th is our first Annual CSES Character Parade (tied into Healthy Habits Week).  Our parade will take place outside at 8:30 am.  Students are asked to dress up as their favorite book character based on a book they have read.  Please have the children bring their book and leave masks or scary dress at home.  Families are welcome to attend and will spread out outside.

Activity Fees are due for PK-4th grade on October 31, 2021.  Please visit the District Webstore.  Click on Cypress Springs Elementary, select Activity Fees, and choose your child (ren) grade levels to pay.  These fees cover field trips.  5th Grade families, please use the same process to pay for Camp Champions by October 15, 2021.  THANK YOU!
