TCAP Testing
The TCAP (Transitional Colorado Assessment Program) is based on the new Colorado Model Content Standards and has replaced CSAP. The TCAP will continue to assess the same content areas and grades as CSAP. Students will be taking the TCAP tests. The tests and schedule for each grade level at EMS are as follows: 6th Grade: Reading, Writing, Math: March 10 - 14 7th Grade: Reading, Writing, Math: March 10 - 14 8th Grade: Reading, Writing, Math March 10 - 14 Attendance is vital during this time. We wanted to let you know early so that appointments and vacations are not scheduled during these days. Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation. Please, if at all possible, plan appointments after 3 pm during this week of TCAP. Also, please encourage your students to try their hardest and get enough rest in preparation for these assessments.

TCAP Snack Donations
TCAP time is quickly approaching and we are in great need of your assistance. We will need to supply over 3500 snacks and drinks throughout our testing period from March 10th– March 14th. If you would like to assist us, please bring your donations of granola bars and juice boxes to the main office by February 27th. Please limit your donations to only granola bars and juice boxes. If you have any questions, please call Natalie Tomlinson at 303-828-3391 or email her at tomlinson_natalie@svvsd.org. Thank you in advance for your donations!

Hooray for Teachers

Nominate Your Favorite!
As we approach the birthday of Thomas Edison, February 11th, our thoughts turn toward the many teachers we have interacted with over the years, those who bring the Edison message and spirit to their students. Edison realized the value of education and often spoke out about the need to get the young ones to think and engage their creativity. We would like to recognize the special accomplishments of these Edison cheerleaders, those teachers who personify the Edison spirit and give their students an invaluable lifetime lesson. Take a moment and drop us a note about a teacher you know or work with who gives their students this kind of inspiration. Email info@thomasedison.org with a brief summary about this teacher and why you think they deserve to be recognized. We will do the rest!
