Welcome to Amity Elementary School
Spring is just around the corner!
     It's hard to believe, but we are already well in to the third quarter of our school year.  Students had a terrific first semester, and they are continuing to learn new things every day.  As spring is approaching, our teachers and students will soon begin their final preparations for district and state assessments.  Most notably, our 3rd through 6th grade students will participate in the first full administration of the new Idaho Standards Achievement Test by the Smarter Balance Consortium.      
      The test will assess what they know and are able to do in math and language arts (which includes reading).  Both of those tests will be broken down into two parts - a computer adapted portion that will "level" students based on their responses to questions, and a performance task which will measure their ability to apply their knowledge.  In total, the tests are expected to take approximately 7-8 hours for students to complete.
     Parents will be notified when their child's class is testing.  It is imperative that students not miss school on those days, because making up the test is very difficult (especially the performance task).  Please make sure that they are well rested and eat a good breakfast that morning.
