4th Grade NJASK Science Assessment–Wednesday, May 25th

Dear Newell Elementary Parents/Guardians,

While our current focus is on PARCC testing, we are beginning our preparations for our NJ ASK Science 4th Grade testing. We wanted to make you aware of the testing date in advance so that both you and your child may plan accordingly.

NJ ASK Practice Workbooks are provided with this letter, so that you have time to preview the NJ ASK Science format with your child. This would also be a great opportunity to discuss the importance of a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast to prepare them for a productive morning of testing.

Testing: Our 4th graders will test the morning of Wednesday, May 25th. Please note that it is important for students to arrive on time in order to be present for the beginning of testing. Make-up testing will take place Wednesday, June 1st. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the administration of the NJ Science ASK.

As always, thank you for your continued support.

NES Principals for a Day…

I had the pleasure of spending the day with Connor, Matthew and Maddox–NES 4th grade students who were Principals for a Day. They received this special day by participating and raising the most funds during our PTA Walk-a-Thon. We had a fun-filled day with greeting students, making special announcements, attending important meetings, visiting classrooms and participating in a working lunch. They were very professional in all of their interactions! I am sharing below their thoughts about being the Principal of Newell Elementary School…

Connor–“You have to be ready for challenges and it takes a lot of work throughout the day.”
Matthew–“It was pretty fun because I got to see things from a different point of view.”
Maddox–“I liked eating donuts and learning how there are two sides to being a Newell Elementary School student.”
