Our 4th graders have been busy taking CogAT testing. The 2nd graders will begin testing on October 28th. For more information on CogAT testing see the article on page 2. The crisp cool mornings, low humidity days all point to fall finally being here. Along with fall comes our annual Fall Festival. I hope you are planning to be here to-morrow evening for all of the fun fall activities our PTO has planned.

Fourth graders  will be testing on selected days during the weeks of Octo-ber 21 and October 28 . Your child’s homeroom teacher will notify you of specific testing dates. Fourth grade testing will be done in our computer lab. Second graders  will be test-ed October 28-30, 2014  in their classrooms. CogAT is a norm-referenced test that measures important verbal, non-verbal and quan-titative reasoning skills such as the ability to comprehend problem situations, detect similarities and differences, make inferences and deduc-tions, classify and categorize objects, events and other stimuli, create and adapt problem-solving strategies and use familiar concepts and skills in new contexts. The State of South Carolina has established three dimen-sions of giftedness as criteria for placement in the academi-cally gifted program. In or-der to qualify for placement in gifted/talented programs, a student must meet the eligibility criteria in TWO  out of the fol-lowing three dimensions: Di-mension A -Aptitude, Dimen-sion B - Achievement and Di-mension C - Academic   Perfor-mance. The CogAT Aptitude test will be administered to grades 2 and 4 to fulfill the re-quirements of Dimension A - Aptitude. Students may be eligi-ble for placement on the basis of aptitude scores alone  if they score at or above the 96th na-tional age percentile on the com-posite  score. Please ensure that your child is here on testing days and is on time. Please do not schedule any appointments for your child prior to 11:00 on testing days. Also please do your best to prepare your child by having your child get a good night’s rest and a nu-tritious breakfast on these testing days.

They come to steal healthy living habits, but have no fear! Learn tips for a safe and healthy Halloween from the CDC. Take steps to prevent the flu . It's Halloween and the flu season is here! The best way to protect against flu is to get the vaccine every flu sea-son. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. The flu vaccine provides pro-tection that lasts throughout the flu season. Get vaccinated now so that you will be protected all season long! Wash your hands . Develop, maintain, and keep good sleep habits. Prevent injuries. Eat fruits and vegeta-bles. Fruits and vegetables also provide essential vitamins and minerals, fiber, and other sub-stances that are important for good health. Most fruits and veg-etables are naturally low in fat and calories and are filling. Fruits and vegetables are a great healthy snack to serve for Hal-loween parties. Be prepared for cold weather. Be prepared this Halloween and make sure to dress for the weather. If you are prepared for the hazards of winter, you will be more likely to stay safe and healthy when temperatures start to fall. Get smart about antibiotics. Antibiotics do not fight infec-tions caused by viruses like colds, most sore throats and bronchitis, and some ear infec-tions. If antibiotics are used too often for things they can't treat—like colds or other viral infections—they can stop working effectively against bacteria when you or your child really needs them. return the order form if you are ordering online. All forms that are returned must have payment (check or cash) attached. Deadline to order a yearbook is December 12, 2014. This is a firm deadline.

The market is coming! ¡Hola! This year , las clases de español   will be holding our annual mer- cado   from Dec. 8 – Dec. 12th. Again, our stu-dents will be able to bar-gain and purchase items with their well-deserved pesos. As usual, we are seeking donations of items for our market – anything from small school supplies to PR items and kids’ meal toys. So please remem-ber us as you clean out those toy boxes to make room for this year’s holi-day gifts! In addition to items for our stu-dents to “purchase”  for them-selves, they will also be able to “purchase” items for do-nation to needy children in our community through our friends at GOoD-works. Items for el mer-cado may be dropped off in the office or dropped by Sra. González’s class-rooms. IMPORTANT NOTE: Since MAP testing will be taking place that same week, el Mercado   will be more low-key and will not require lots of volun-teers. Our students will be focusing on com-municating in Spanish in an authentic setting! Many thanks for your help in making this hap-pen for our students!
