MICHIGAN STUDENT TEST OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRESS (M-STEP)

Each spring our third, fourth, and fifth graders participate in the standardized state assessment, the M-STEP. The purpose of this assessment is to: 1) Provide state, district, and building data to determine the effectiveness of our programming; and 2) Provide parents and teachers with individual student performance data. Third through fifth grade students will take an online English Language Arts (ELA) and Math assessment on their iPads. In addition, fifth grade will be taking a Science Field Test and a two part Social Studies assessment. All testing will take place in the morning.

The testing dates for third grade assessments will be Mon 4/30 - Thu 5/3

The testing dates for fourth grade assessments will be Thu 5/10, Thu 5/17

LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO HELP PLAN NEXT YEAR'S JOG-A-THON

Please click on the link below. There will be a meeting on Thursday, May 31st @ 7:00pm

**** **** **** HELP WANTED IN THE LUNCH ROOM **** **** ****

We are in need of noon aides to work in the lunch room. Hours are 11:25am - 1:10pm. Please contact the office if you are interested. (248) 823-3500.

**** **** **** HELP WANTED IN FOOD SERVICE **** **** ****

The Troy Schools Food Service Department, which is contracted by the Sodexo Corporation, is gearing up to expand our Food Service Staff by seeking friendly people willing to fill various vacancies that are responsible for providing lunches to the students of the Troy School District. Not to worry if you haven’t had previous experience, as “on the job” training will be provided!

Depending on the school, the hours would primarily be during the middle of the day and would range from 3 to 4 hours a day. And you would be earning some extra money while your students are in school! We are especially seeking elementary cooks, which does have more hours. So, come join our team by calling 248-823-5089, or email Nicole Gervais at ngervais@troy.k12.mi.us, or come into the office at the Service Center, 4420 Livernois, Troy 48098 for an application. I look forward to hearing from you!

Gayle M. Moran, Director, General Manager Sodexo Corporation

DO YOU HAVE AN UPCOMING KINDERGARTENER FOR
