Announcement #1: Semester 2 Reminders
Tutoring is available to all students each Friday from 1-4 PM. Tutoring is done by grade level, so please reach out to and look for updates from your child’s teachers.
NWEA Testing on Friday
This Friday, your student will complete NWEA testing; NWEA stands for Northwest Evaluation Association. NWEA provides computerized tests that are adaptive and offered in Reading, Language Usage, Science, and Mathematics. When taking these tests, the difficulty of each question is based on how well a student answers all of the previous questions. As the student answers correctly, questions become more difficult. If the student answers incorrectly, the questions become easier. In an optimal test, a student answers approximately half the items correctly and half incorrectly. The final score is an estimate of the student’s achievement level. Completing these assessments gives us valuable information about what academic progress child has made and what support they will need. They will get information about these tests via email; please remind your child to check their BSA email regularly.
Happy Women’s History Month!
BSA salutes all the amazing women who support their student(s), our BSA community, and our world at large.

She is the creator of VangaurdSTEM, a web series that seeks to bring women of color together to talk about their STEM careers. The future is only as bright as the inclusivity in our education! Dr. Isler’s work to diversify STEM research is essential. #womxninstem”
