Mrs. Graham's Update for the Week of 4/20/20

I hope it's been a great week at your house - now we are looking to finish the year #eaglestrong!  What a blessing to hear over and over how teachers and families are working together for kids.  I guarantee you - this is NOT the norm, we are BLESSED to be at POPCS, where teachers are fully committed to you and your child's education.  That is why a POPCS education is so valuable! 


Next week, the ITBS reports for your student will be mailed to your home. There is information on the report (both front and back) that explains what the different scores mean. Please feel free to reach out to me or to your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.


Remember, as a data-driven learning environment, we use the information from the ITBS tests to guide our curriculum and instruction, to identify areas of strengths and areas of concern, and to show student growth and improvement over time. Test results are not used for grade level promotion or retention purposes.


We have amazing students at POPCS – who are not bound to the results of one test. We celebrate their many God-given talents – in the classrooms, on the athletic fields, on the stage, in the laboratory, and EVERYWHERE they use their gifts.


This week again, we’ll have chapel via Zoom at 9:45am on Thursday. I’m looking forward to seeing your families there.


Thank you and God Bless You!

In Christ,

Betsy Graham
