Information about the NAEP Testing

WMS has been selected to represent schools across the nation by participating in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). First administered in 1969, NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subject areas.

The NAEP assessment will be given on February 4, 2015 to a group of randomly selected students. They will take either a math, science or reading assessment. If you would like to view a sample subject area and contextual questions, please visit http://nationsreportcard.gov/parents.asp.

The results are completely confidential and used for statistical purposes only. If your child was chosen and you do not wish for him or her to participate, please notify Mr. Anders in writing by January 30, 2015. 

There is no need to study to prepare for this assessment, we do ask that you encourage your child to do their best and get plenty of rest the night before the assessment.

 

Consolidated Program Review

The state legislature has required that all school districts adopt and implement a teaching framework to improve learning. Our district is implementing the Charlotte Danielson Framework. We have used our non-student days and our late-start collaboration days to learn this framework so that we can best meet the academic needs of all of our students. If you have suggestions or comments about teacher professional development, please send them to Mr. Anders or Mrs. Wood.

State of the Schools

Today Olympia School District Superintendent Dick Cvitanich offered his annual “State of the Schools” report for OSD students, staff, parents and community members. We invite everyone to read this insightful overview of where we’re at as a school district. Here’s to a great 2015!

Safe Schools Alert

Safety is our top priority.  SafeSchools Alert is a reporting system that allows students, staff, and parents to submit concerns to our administration in four different ways; phone, text, email or via the web.  Anyone may easily report on bullying, harassment, alcohol/other drugs, vandalism or safety concerns through the SafeSchools Alert process.  Tips may be submitted anonymously.


If you have questions, contact your school principal or the District Compliance Officer, Jeff Carpenter at (360) 596-8544.
