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

Dear CPS Parents and Families,
We’re writing to let you know that we’ve amended our school calendar to add Tuesday, June 19, 2018 as an instructional day for all CPS students. This will make up for the instructional day lost on February 9, 2018 due to severe weather.
This year’s original calendar listed Tuesday, June 19 as a school improvement day for CPS staff, but it will now be the last day of classes for all CPS students. You can see the amended school calendar at cps.edu/calendar.
With all of the progress our students are making, we don’t want them to miss out on even one day of valuable instruction. Thank you for playing an active role in your children’s education, and I encourage you to contact your school directly with any questions.
