In other words, how do you as a parent or guardian define success for your child? Please take five minutes to complete the following survey, answering questions in respect to your oldest child who is today 18 years old or younger. Thank you in advance for your participation in this short survey and for all you do to help our state prepare the next generation of Kansas children for tomorrow’s workforce.

CHES Fourth Grade Parents, You should have received a letter in the mail explaining the NAEP (National Assessment of Academic Progress) testing taking place on February 12. Each fourth grader will be tested in either math or reading. Also known as The Nation’s Report Card, NAEP has provided important information about how students are performing academically since 1969. Results are reported for groups of students with similar characteristics (e.g., gender, race and ethnicity, school location), not individual students. Students just need to give us their best effort on the NAEP on February 12! If you have any questions, please call Mrs. Collins.
