Halliwell's Happenings Newsletter

Dear Family,

Please read about all of the exciting learning opportunitites and activities our students participated in throughout the month of March!




Every year, our students take a number of state assessments. We share the results of these assessments with you in order to give you an idea about the progress your child is making in school. We also use the results of these assessments to help us improve classroom instruction and to identify areas where students may need some extra support. The North Smithfield School Department will be implementing the PARCC assessment this Spring.

A few changes based on feedback have been made to the assessment:
• Consolidation of the two testing windows that stretched from March to June into one testing period
• Reduction the number of test units
• Reduction of the testing time for students by 90 minutes overall (30 minutes in English language arts, 60 minutes in mathematics); and
• Flexibility in setting testing schedules within the testing period
