Monday Memo: Testing, Trivia and 20% Time

Happy Monday! There is a lot going on in the next couple of weeks. We'll highlight the events a bit further down. One of our elementary teachers, who is doing her doctoral thesis at Maryville University, is conducting a study on 20% Time and would like for our kids to fill out a survey. There is a parent component as well and we would like for parents to fill out the attached permission slip so that their child can participate if they would like. The link to the slip is here.

Last week, our new book about 20% Time was released. It is available in paperback and eBook. If you'd like to check it out, click here.

Hixson Highlights - March 25, 2016

Hixson Student Trivia Night - April 8

Student Council and the FACS department are sponsoring a student trivia night from 3:30 to 5:00 on April 8.
Registration forms were mailed in term 4 progress reports, but may also be found by clicking here.
(There was a slight error on the form mailed home; trivia ends at 5:00, not 5:30.) Registration forms are due 
in the office by April 6. 

MAP Testing Dates

7th grade will be testing April 4-7 from 8:45 to 10:18am
8th grade will be testing April 4-11 from 1:30 to 3:15pm

Ear buds are required for some sessions. Please ensure students bring a pair during the testing dates. If you are
unable to provide a pair of earbuds, please contact your grade level counselor.

There are limited MAP test make up dates due to the Algebra End of Course exams taking place April 25-29
 for some Hixson students.  Please be mindful of scheduled appointments during the testing dates.
