   This is Mr. Johnson's final week in our classroom. We appreciate all that he has done teaching the students and working hard learning how to be a great teacher! We wish him the best in the future and look forward to Friday's special goodbye! :-) Tuesday will also be the final trip to Neighborhood House! Hopefully we have all enjoyed serving and learning about those in our city who are constantly struggling with having enough money for food. Make it a great week, everyone!

Neighborhood House: Final Trip!

We only have one more trip to visit Neighborhood House! The second group will be going on Tuesday, May 17th. Please remember that the students should wear good shoes to walk in, bring a rain jacket in case it rains on our 15 minute walk to Multnomah Village, and clothes they don't mind getting dirty when we are there volunteering. It would be great if all students would bring two items to donate (one for each trip). Let me know if you have any questions and click here for more info.

Measuring Academic Progress (MAP)

Spring MAP begins this week! Just a reminder, MAP is the standardized testing used at West Hills to track student growth as they continually learn more. To ensure results that accurately reflect student knowledge, it is important that each student has plenty of rest, has a good breakfast and lunch, and does not have interruptions (i.e. doctor appointment) during the time of their tests. Let me know if you have any questions about the following schedule for our class:
   - Monday, May 16th, 2:00-3:00pm
   - Wednesday, May 18th, 2:00-3:00pm
   - Thursday, May 19th, 2:10-3:00pm
   - Friday, May 20th, 2:00-3:00pm
