Last week, our Peirce community lost Pascual Gonzalez-Hernandez (the father of four students). Pascual died during an accident at work.
Please consider making a donation to help this family as they navigate life without Pascual. Any amount is welcome. Thank you in advance.
Note: This loss may raise emotions, questions or concerns by some students. Please reach out to Ms. Choe if your child is in need of any additional support in processing the situation.

From Ms. Bencel & Ms. Zisook:
In an effort to help this family during their difficult time, we are arranging a meal train to help provide a meal per day to them for the next two weeks. Sally has spoken to the mom, and she is gratefully willing to accept this support.
If you would like to contribute a meal, simply click here, select your date, and write a brief description of what you'll provide. You can leave the meal labeled in the staff room fridge, but please let Sally, Anne, Ms. Bencel and Ms. Zisook, know that it's there. We will ensure the family receives the meal that day, either by dropping it off to them or sending it home with the students once they return. We will also accept gift cards to nearby establishments.

Dear Peirce Parent/Guardian,
The teachers at Peirce work hard every day to ensure that our students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to succeed in high school and beyond. Chicago Public Schools uses the Northwest Evaluation Association’s (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) computerized adaptive assessment as a district-wide assessment.
The end of year (EOY) MAP assessment is set to begin soon. EOY MAP is important as it gives teachers valuable information to show how our students have reached their end of year academic growth target.
The EOY MAP assessment for students in 2nd to 8th grade will begin on May 14th and be completed by June 15th. Students will have two test sessions total - one for Math and the other for Reading. As we prepare for this, we wanted to inform you that we are scheduling the testing to ensure maximized time for instruction. The following will be the testing dates for each grade level:
2nd Grade, Rooms 223, 224 & 228
2nd Grade, Room 225
We ask that you please have your children to school on time and well rested, so that they are ready to do their best for this assessment.
We recognize that you may have additional questions about MAP Assessments. You can locate information about this assessment by visiting http://www.cps.edu/SchoolData/Pages/Assessment.aspx or by visiting http://www.nwea.org. Also, feel free to contact us at Kim Lebovitz, firstname.lastname@example.org or Josh Lerner, email@example.com
