Bush School Welcomes Parents at Family Night

Bush Elementary School recently held a Family Night to talk to about MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) for ELA and Math that every Bush School kindergartner  through fourth grade student takes three times a year.

Parent and families received a firsthand look on how the screener is given to their child, what results teachers receive, and how teachers use the results. Reading Specialist, Carrie Blitz, also explained in more detail how the results from MAP are used to directly benefit their children’s education. 

Families then visited their child’s grade level for teacher presentations and “homework.”  After the grade level “work” was completed, each family received a “homework” pass and returned to the cafeteria for pizza and drinks.

“All of our families had nothing but positive things to say about the evening and how informative it was to learn more about MAP and visit their child’s classroom,” said Bush Elementary School Principal, Dan Bracey. “A special thanks to the Bush School PTA who sponsored the evening.”
