"We will be a school/district with an unrelenting focus on learning. All students are expected to succeed; failure is not an option."
February 27, 2015
Your child will be participating in the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers), which will be given to all students in Arkansas in grades 3-11. This Assessment will be administered on a computer. There will be two segments given. The first is the Performance Based Assessment given in March. The second is the End of Year Assessment given in May. The schedule for the Performance Based Assessment for the Ashdown School District is as follows:
Grades 3-5 will test March 9-13
Grades 9-11 will test March 16-20
Grades 6-8 will test March 30-April 2
We have been working here at school to familiarize our students with the new testing format. If you would like to help with this at home, you can access the PARCC website to view sample test items at: http://parcc.pearson.com. There will be a link for Test Preparation, and you will find sample items, tutorials, and practice tests. Please contact your child’s school if you have any questions regarding this new state assessment. Thank you for your support as we work to make your child’s educational experience the best it can be.

Details on Junior Achievement Program below:
It is again time to gear up for the Junior Achievement (JA) Program in the Ashdown School District. The program will be offered for all 2nd through 8th grade students. This program continues to be a huge success year-after-year thanks to our employees and community volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to this worthwhile program. The program only requires about 45 minutes of your time in the classroom for only 6 times (you will have a three-month period to complete the classes).
The program provides volunteers with the necessary classroom materials needed and a structured topic to teach. The topics range from economic responsibility and opportunities, business operations, personal economics, the International marketplace, and much more!
Hurry and sign-up; material will be distributed to volunteers on Thursday, February 26 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., LDC Room 110. We need 45 committed volunteers to meet all of the needs for the targeted grades. In advance, thanks for your help!
