Important Spring News from UMS

April Advisory - 4/5​: In our continued effort to develop EMPATHY in our students, we will be hosting the MHS People Project. These amazing high school students will present a program to our middle schoolers reminding them that “Everyone Has A Story”. Students are encouraged to be mindful that their judgements are often based on incomplete/inaccurate information but can always adjust their thinking to be more empathetic.

PARCC Testing: ​New Jersey is a member of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and administers the PARCC assessments as our statewide standardized assessment. The PARCC assessments are computer based and aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards.
  • PARCC Infrastructure & Practice Trial - 4/6/17: ​All students will be given hands-on tutorials to revisit the use of the accessibility features, and exposure to some sample questions to gain familiarity with the testing platform. Simultaneously, we will be testing our newly expanded infrastructure for any bandwidth and connectivity issues.
  • PARCC Administration - 5/5, 5/8, 5/9, 5/10, 5/11: ​This year we will be able to have all students test at the same time beginning at 8:15am each day. This will allow for minimal disruptions and continuity of instruction during the testing cycle.
  • Resources: ​I encourage you to visit the MTSD website and the PARCC Resources page for information regarding test design, practice tests and a PARCC FAQ.
  • Please do not hesitate to call Assistant Principal and Testing Coordinator Mrs. Karin Kidd or Principal Cory Delgado with any questions.
