The Northwest Ninja Warrior Challenge is a new fundraiser being conducted by the PTO to be held on Friday-September 19, 2014.  There is nothing to sell or deliver--simply collect donations to participate.  Unlike other fundraisers, 100% of the funds raised through the Ninja Warrior Challenge will be donated to Northwest and go towards the technology fund.  Our goal is to raise $19,000!  All pledges should be turned in to your teacher by September 17th.

We need your help!  Sign up here to volunteer on Friday - September 19th!
All volunteers will need to have a current volunteer form and confidentiality statement completed to participate with this event.  Stop in the office to pick one up!

FAST - MAP Assessments
The early literacy legislation, enacted by IA Code 279.68, requires all school districts in Iowa to administer a universal screening for all K-3 students to identify students in need of additional literacy support.

All students in 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grades will take an assessment called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP).  MAP assessments provide valuable information to help teachers design instruction to meet students' learning needs and to measure academic growth throughout the school year.

Find more information on the literacy and MAP assessments here

The first assessment window is September 12-26, 2014.  Please partner with us by making sure that your child has a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast during the assessment period.  Please contact Mr. Busby if you have any questions at travis.busby@ankenyschools.org
