All the faculty and staff of H.S.A. Dallas would like to take this time to join with the nation in commemorating all those who lost their lives in the attacks against our nation on September 11, 2001.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who were left behind, to mourn their losses, and to build again.
We all are thankful for all of our U.S. soldiers who work ceaselessly and tirelessly to defend our freedoms, our ways, and our selves, who help to protect our nation from future harms.
On the morning of September 11, 2014, all faculty, staff, and students of H.S.A. Dallas will observe a special moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., as is national tradition.
Harmony students at grades K-12 will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) beginning 2014-15 school year. We give students MAP tests to determine students’ instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of English Language Arts and Reading, Mathematics, and Science. Students will take the tests on a computer.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for student’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth.
We are truly excited to begin a new era that focuses on every child’s individual growth and achievement. Partnering to help all kids learn, parents and teachers can have a profound positive effect on the lives of our children.
Elementary Students will test beginning September 8- September 19th.
