This year, Stapleton Elementary School will be administering the Computer-Based MCAS 2.0 (Next Generation) Assessment to all students in grades 3-5. The goal of the MCAS assessment is to measure student growth and progress towards English and Math academic learning standards. The new MCAS 2.0 incorporates elements from the most recent MCAS and PARCC assessments as well as newly designed questions. Fifth grade students will also continue to participate in the MCAS Science, Technology/Engineering assessment this year which will also be available in a computer-based version. The assessments will be administered to students from April 3rd to May 14th.

Parents and Guardians,
Please be advised that when temps drop below 32 degrees, students will be required to wear long pants, hats/hoods, gloves/mittens, and winter coats to go outside for recess. Any child who does not have proper clothing will have to stay indoors during recess that day.
If temps drop below 15 degrees, all students will have indoor recess.
Recess may also be held indoors if the school's administration determines that students' safety may be at risk due to conditions on the playground created by weather.
To coincide with the National Student Walkout Movement on March 14th, Schools across our District planned a variety of activities. The date was rescheduled to Wednesday 3/21 due to snow, but there were some great examples brought to life by the Teachers and Students at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School.
