February might be the shortest month in the calendar, but in school terms, April might just be the month that flies by most quickly. We open the month with our spring break starting on Friday, April 3. Classes resume on Monday, April 13 and from there we just hit the ground running.

This year is the first year of the new state assessment, M-STEP. Grades 3 -8 as well as grade 11 are scheduled to take the MSTEP beginning the week we return from break. The State of Michigan has established testing windows for various grade levels and the first window will be from April 13 until April 24 for grades 5, 8 and 11. Grades 4 and 7 will test during the 2nd window from April 27 until May 8. The final testing window from May 18 through May 29 will allow testing for grades 3 and 6.

All grades will be tested in Mathematics and English Language Arts—which includes reading and writing. Grades 5 and 8 will also have a social studies test; grades 4 and 7 will have a science test; and grade 11 will have both science and social studies added to the math/reading/writing tests. MSTEP replaces the MEAP which has served as the statewide assessment for more than a decade. To prepare for this first MSTEP, W-M students have been using the Chrome Lab to practice taking online tests and W-M teachers have been working to incorporate more online activities in their lessons.

The annual PTO Craft Fair is scheduled for Saturday, April 25 and this year, the Scholastic Book Fair and the Art Department Art Fair will be held at the same time. Be sure to keep that day open for all of the wonderful displays and vendors that will be here.

Track season is in full swing as we move through the month of April. Be sure to check the event calendar for all of the track dates as well as the other school activities that will keep us busy through the end of the school year.

Enjoy Spring—it takes a long time to get here, but it's well worth it.
