Hello Families,


Welcome to March, a month of change. It is that time of year again to assess our English language learners with ACCESS 2.0. This assessment is online for our first, second, and third grade students. The writing assessment is still paper and pencil.

Our Kindergarten English language learners are testing with a booklet, story book, activity board, and colorful picture cards.

The ACCESS assessment is very picture friendly and colorful, with bold print, and a speaker to guide our learners through a comfortable process.

I have been assisting our learners through ACCESS practice testing, and they are excited and ready to go! The assessment dates begin Monday, March 19th and run through Tuesday March 27th, 2018.

This time window allows for any student that needs to make-up testing in case they are absent.

Please make sure your child gets a good night sleep the night before testing, and a healthy breakfast.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. It is my pleasure to work with your wonderful and unique children.



Ms. Meranus ELL Teacher
