Teacher Appreciation Week

We are so excited to celebrate our amazing teachers this year! Teacher Appreciation Week will be held April 12-16th. The PTO has planned some special treats for our teachers all week long.

On Wednesday, April 14th, we are asking students to bring in a "Teacher Favorite" for your homeroom and MAPS teacher of the day. You can access the Teacher Favorites lists for ideas!

TN Ready Testing

We need your help! The state mandated TN Ready testing will take place at Dogwood beginning on April 12th. The state has made in-person attendance for TN Ready a requirement for all students enrolled in a public school. Any school that does not meet 80% participation is subject to becoming a Priority School.

Testing Dates:

Grade 2: April 12-16

Grades 3-5: April 12-19

Attendance: This is always important and TN Ready is no different. We need your help to make certain that your child arrives on campus by 8:45 in order to participate in the assessment.

Breakfast: Please make sure that your child has breakfast, or arrives on campus in time for breakfast. Getting lots of sleep each evening is also a big help!

Test times: Testing blocks will run from 9:30-11:30 on April 12th, and 9:00-11:00 the rest of the testing window.

Early Check-Outs: A parent may check out a student at any time, as needed. Please understand that sessions may run longer than anticipated. In the event that a student is checked out during a subpart, the subpart may be invalidated or unanswered questions may count against the student.

Tardiness: In the event that a student is tardy during testing in grades 2-5, the student will remain in the lobby until the test concludes. We are unable to allow your child to enter his/her classroom when testing is in progress.

Make-up Opportunities: This will be provided in the event that your child is absent or tardy, but this can never replicate the opportunity to test with your child's teacher and with his/her peers.

Thank you,

Dogwood Administration
