Bolingbrook’s Oak View assembly recognizes students for MAP testing growth
BOLINGBROOK — Nearly 50 Oak View Elementary School students were honored Thursday for their “significant growth” in MAP test scores from the first exam last fall to the second winter test. A third school-wide MAP test, used to measure individual student progress in both reading and math, will take place in the spring.
With parents of many of the students present for the “Partners In Excellence” assembly, Principal Bob Pinciak and Assistant Principal Eugenia Harvatt congratulated the high achievers and urged them to continue to strive to do well.
Pinciak also revealed the school’s new vision and mission statement, telling parents “our commitment as a community is to be lifelong learners and effective citizens.”
“As a culturally diverse community, our commitment is to work as a team encouraging one another to be respectful and honest. We believe everyone can achieve to the best of their ability reflecting on academic goals, achievements and mistakes. Curriculum is in place to meet the needs of all students. Instruction will be planned and implemented with integrity encompassing many forms of assessment and making learning fun and meaningful,” the Oak View Mission Statement reads.
Two special guests were on hand at the PIE assembly including VVSD Pre K-5 Math and Science Coordinator Adam Hurder, who detailed VVSD’s new math program and the new common core learning standards, and the Charter Oak Foundation’s John A. Lane Jr., whose organization donated nearly $2,000 to the school’s RAZ Kids on-line reading program.
