Message from the High School Principal

PROM

Dear Students and Parents,

Due to weather damage, Maxfield’s is unable to host this years Prom as previously scheduled.  As a result, a decision was made to host the event in the Commons at Vestaburg Community Schools.  Please know that this decision was not made without considerable consideration and that is was made taking into consideration several factors, first and foremost the inclusion of all students.  We have held Prom at the school on multiple occasions and they have been very well attended and we have received very positive feedback from the students and parents.  Given the past experiences and the short amount of time we had it was decided that hosting at the school would allow for the best experience for our students.  We will be catering the meal in from Maxfield’s and are doing everything possible to create an experience for the students that will be unlike any other dance or event that they have attended at the school.  If you have any further questions please contact the office and we will be glad to answer your questions.

Growth Assessments: Throughout the school year middle and high school students will be taking the N.W.E.A. assessments.  There will be three assessments that students will take annually. While these assessments are not used in grading they are very important as they will give a picture of where the students skills and abilities are, how much growth they are making, and will used to determine what offerings and interventions that we may adopt.


*Reminder that student drop off and pick up is to be done in front of the school building. We need to keep the streets in back of the school clear for the school buses.
