Bus Concerns and Warning
I realize that not all students use the bus for transportation between home and school, but it is important for all students to understand bus rules in case they are on the bus for field trips.á
á
Please talk to your child about bus safety and the importance of staying in their seats, following bus rules, and being respectful to the driver and other students.

Too often, we have students playing around, being loud, and standing up when the bus is moving.á I will be suspending students from the bus for repeated misbehavior and/or safety violations.á

PARCC Testing
What is it? PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers)
How is PARCC different from other tests?á The answer is very long, but basically, the PARCC corresponds to the new Illinois State Learning Standards (also known as Common core Standards).á Students will be taking this test on the computer rather than on paper.á The questions require students to problem solve and/or interpret more.á they also must write more in an effort to explain their answers.á
What subjects are tested? The 3rd and 4th grade students will be tested in ELA (English Language Arts) and math.á Older students also are tested in science.á
When do Sherman students take the test? Sherman's 3rd and 4th grade students will take the PARCC test during the last week in March. Each school will test in a different week.
Where do I find more information? A great place to find information is www.parcconline.org. Another site you might want to try is
