UPark UNews: December 9-13, 2013
**From the Principal**
Mid-Year Assessments: December is a very busy month at University Park! During the next couple of weeks, all of ourstudents will be assessed in reading, mathematics and writing. The midyear exams allow us to look at where our students are so that we can focus our instruction for the remainder of the year. Writing and math assessments will be scored and analyzed by the staff when we return on January 6, 2014. Dress for Recess: Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather. If the wind chill temperature is below 20 degrees, we have an inside day. All other days, we go out for some activity and fresh air!
We will be having our last meeting of the year next Thursday, December 12th at 1 pm, in the Art Room (Room 212). We are trying to have a least one meeting during the day for those who are not able to make the evening meetings. So please join us and find out all that is happening with the school and your PTA.
