TTE Assessment Days:

Wednesday, October 9th8:00 am-3:00 pm

Thursday, October 10th8:00 am - 3:00 pm

What is an assessment day?   

In order to have as much information and an accurate picture of where students are, teachers progress monitor, give benchmark tests, and collect academic data.  This year, to accomplish part of the task of assessing without taking time out of daily instruction, the teachers at TTE will assess all students in a one-on-one or small group setting during two days in October.  The data gathered will be used to drive teacher instruction and increase teaching time.  Teachers will share assessment information at parent/teacher conferences during the week of November 4.

All students are required to come for an assessment.

There is NO REGULAR SCHOOL on these two days.  However, all students are required to attend an assessment time on one of the two days.  If a student does not attend a time, they will be marked absent for both days.

Parents will sign up their child(ren) for an assessment time on either Wednesday, October 8th orThursday, October 9th.  By attending their pre-assigned assessment time, students will be counted present for both days.   Details about how to sign up for assessment times will be coming soon from your classroom teacher.

TTE Child Care available:

Because these days will not follow a normal school day schedule, there will be no bus service or lunch served those days.  However, TTE's Child Care program will be operating both days for parents that need their service.    Please contact Timber Trail Child Care directly at  303-387-5756  if you need care on these  days.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher if you have questions regarding Assessment Days.
