Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
On behalf of the faculty and staff of M.E.T.S. Charter School, I would like to welcome you all to what I know will be a wonderful year of learning and innovation for our students. School will resume on Tuesday, August 29th for all students. The school building will be open at 7:00AM and students must report no later than 8:00AM.
Starting on Wednesday we will be taking time prior to the start of instruction to have our students complete a series of assessments which will help our instructional team to create the most appropriate and individualized schedule for each of our students. On Wednesday and Thursday students in all grade levels will be taking our Accuplacer examination in the areas of Reading Comprehension and Arithmetic. Additionally, our older students will be taking the Elementary Algebra and Writeplacer exams. This series of examinations is used to determine if students are ready for Honors level or College Level courses, so it is important that students put forth their best effort. Those students who are returning to M.E.T.S. and have already passed these examinations must still report to school, but will be engaged with other activities.
Friday and next Tuesday we will be completing our MAP tests for the Fall term. These tests are given at the beginning and end of each school year to help our students see their growth and improvement as the year progresses. They will be taking a section in math, reading, language, and science. Again, please encourage your students to try their best on all of these assessments as they will help our teachers to plan their instruction in the coming months to best fit their needs.
On Tuesday the 29th, students will be dismissed at 10:00AM. Students will be dismissed each testing day at the conclusion of testing and the building will remain open to them until 1:00PM. We will begin full day classes on Wednesday, September 2nd.
