NAEP Coming to Highland Park & Lewistown Junior High

Selected 4th and 8th Grade Students to take the NAEP Assessment

Every few years Lewistown students are selected to participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). This year is one of those years.

Many Highland Park Elementary fourth graders and Lewistown Junior High eighth graders have selected to participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on February 21, 2017.  Not all fourth and eighth grade students were selected for the test.  Letters are scheduled to be sent home to parents of our selected students on Friday, February 3rd, a copy of which can be found in both the Highland Park and the Junior High Digital Backpacks.

NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects.  It is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S.  Department of Education.  NAEP is different from our state assessment because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country.  The results are released as The Nation's Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

The Central Montana Education Center is hosting a wonderful learning opportunity to educate ourselves about one of our most difficult ,and hard to understand problems in our lives today, suicide.

Montana currently has the highest suicide rate in the United States and Tuesday, March 14, retired school psychologist Rick Wright will present and Tursday March 16th, will moderate a panel of professionals concerning suicide facts and the need for education and prevention.

Rick Wright is not new to the schools of Central Montana, retiring recently after decades of working with and coaching our students.  

During the first night, information will be provided on signs and symptoms of individuals who may be at risk and how to help. Depression looks different for children, adolescents, and adults. Knowing those differences & being able to recognize them may help save a life.  The second night, a panel of professionals in the medical and mental health fields will speak to & take questions from the participants.

Rick's presentation and the later facilitation of a panel discussion on suicide facts, signs and prevention is highly recommended for educators, concerned family members and our community at large. The cost is $20 though the Central Montana Education Center with OPI Recertification credit available. 

If you have questions please contact Diane Oldenburg at 535-9022.
