I want to thank everyone for an extremely smooth opening of the 1999/2000 school year. This effort truly epitomized the commitment of the Arbor Heights Educational community.
Staff worked very hard last week giving students opening tests to reassess academic skills and identify areas of weakness.
The WASL (Washington Assessment of Student Learning) scores came out last week. You may have noticed them in the paper. Arbor Heights students' scores increased by 13.6% in Math, 12.3% in Reading and 17.6 % in Listening. Percentages are the number of students that are at state standards. WAY TO GO!! This year's fourth grade parents will be receiving practice questions from the WASL. It is our hope that you take the practice test so you will be able to support us in preparing for the April test date.
There will be two (2) Parent Information Nights - September 29th and 30th from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. in the Arbor Heights auditorium. I will review the new Standard Based Learning System, testing and any other programs of interest to parents. Grade level standards will be going home with students next week. Please take the time to review your child's academic requirements for the year.
Please be reminded not to block driveways, mailboxes and especially bus loading and unloading areas. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Please return the information from the Parent Information Packet this week. It is important we always have current emergency phone numbers. Don't let an emergency occur before realizing the importance of our being able to reach you.
