Trimester Assessments

This week students are calling upon all the skills they have learned this year in order to demonstrate their knowledge on the end-of-trimester MAP test. We used this assessment for the first time back in March. I blogged about it. Teachers will be printing out reports to send home with report cards at the end of the year, so you can review with your child their progress since the second trimester.

The reports show Winter and Spring scores so you can see your child's growth. Following are some definitions that will help you read the reports:

  • Student RIT- A student's overall score on the test
  • District RIT- The average score of all 6th graders in our district
  • Norm RIT- The average of all 6th graders across the nation


Famous Person
My famous person is 13 years old. He was born on September 4th, 2002. He and his older brother Hunter (15), are a part of Magcon. They travel around the world to meet their fans. They’re now doing a meet and greet in Europe. My famous person is well known on Instagram, Twitter, Younow,, and Vine. Before fame, he used to take dancing and singing lessons. He and Hunter are starting to do dance again. He, his Mom Christine(38) and brothers like to go to the gym very often. He has a little brother Ashton (10), who is following in his footsteps.

Question of the Week
This week I asked my mom what she likes to do. She said, “I like to cook for my family. I like to watch movies with my family on family Friday.” I asked her what she likes to do on the weekends. She said, “I like going bowling. I like going to church every Sunday with my family.” She also said, “I like going to the Roseville or Marysville flea markets after church.” I asked her what she likes to do during the summer. She said, “I like having BBQ’s with my parents and my in laws and my kids.” She also said, “I like to go to my favorite place to swim, Bridgeport!!!!” That is what my mom likes to do.

Two Truths and a Lie

1. Last year at Golden Hills, my friend told me he was going to throw a party behind the gym. It was at 12:00 when I decided to go. I got dressed and everything, but before I got a chance to go out the door, my dad caught me and I did not get to go. I was in trouble the next day.

2. When I was a little kid I tried to chase birds. I shot one with a be-be gun. Then 4 other birds came and attacked me. I ran in the house and stayed inside for a couple of hours until the pest control we called came. I don’t know why mom called the pest control but they went away, and we were safe.

3. In 2014 my mom, aunt, and I were driving around town when we heard that there's a new Star Wars movie coming out. We were excited. Then we hear them say “it is coming out december 15th.” I was freaking out, but then they said “next year”. I was very mad and didn’t get over it until a few weeks later.


  1. Bella- I more than KNOW who your famous person is.(I may stock him on social media) You go glen coco <3

    Saira- That is very cool that you have a family Friday. My family barely even gets together and the only time that we do is at dinner.

    Kaidin- I am pretty shure that number 1 is a lie because Golden Hills gates are usally always locked.


  2. Bella-I don't know I'm not a girl who likes to go on social media.
    Saira- I think that's amazing! My family doesn't really do anything together. We just go on vacation and go camping together.
    Kaidin- I'm 100% sure that #1 is a lie, Golden Hills is too stricted to let you have a party in the back of the gym.

  3. Ms. Davis - I am excited to see the MAP reports for our students. I know we will see lots of growth because these kiddos have been working so hard.

    Bella - I don't know who your famous person is. I will look it up. My dad's birthday is September 4th too, but I don't think your famous person is my dad.

    Saida - Sounds like your mom enjoys doing things for you and your family. That is awesome!

    Kaidin - I think #1 is a lie. But it's funny!
