April Newsletter 2018

Dear Woodstation Family,

All students enrolled in third through eighth grade in Georgia schools are required to take the Georgia Milestones End of Grade Test. This test is designed to measure the knowledge and skills taught in Georgia classrooms. It will assess these skills in the areas of reading, EL, and mathematics. Fifth grade students will also be tested in science and social studies. Students will be assessed on how well they have learned the academic standards that have been established by the state for their grade.

At Woodstation, this test will be administered:

Writing – April 23

ELA/Reading – April 24        

Math – April 25

Science – April 26 (Fifth grade Only)                                                                                               

Social Studies – April 27 (Fifth grade Only)

 

Results from this test will be provided to you, the school, and the school system as a tool to help enrich the educational program that we offer your child. I’m so pleased with the hard work of our Generals (students and teachers) this year. Everyone has worked so well together so that our students can learn as much as possible.  

On our school’s website (www.wes.catoosa.k12.ga.us) under “WES Parents and Students” is a presentation on the Georgia Milestones that is a good sources for additional information. I’m looking forward to seeing our test results, which I feel confident will reflect everyone’s hard work! If you have questions regarding the Georgia Milestones test, please feel free to contact your teacher or an administrator at 706-935-6700. I know our teachers have prepared your students to be successful. I am looking forward to seeing our students rise to the challenge and do their very best!

On May 8 from 5:00-7:00, we are hosting a “Welcome to Woodstation” event for upcoming Pre-K and Kindergarten students who will attend Woodstation next school year. Please help us get the word out and join us so we can welcome our new students to our wonderful school!

School Lunch Charges: We are thankful for the nutritious breakfast and lunches our cafeteria provides for our students daily. Please make sure if your student is purchasing breakfast or lunch in our Dining Hall, there is money in their account to cover the cost of the meals. If you do owe money, please send payment immediately or contact the school to set up a payment plan.

Go Generals!                                                     Ernie Ellis
