The Smarter Balanced Practice Tests provide a preview of the Smarter Balanced assessments, but do not reflect the full range of content that students may encounter on the actual assessments. As such, the practice tests should not be used to guide instructional decisions about students. No score reports are generated from the Practice Tests. The Practice Tests will be available through summer 2017.

A Safe and Secure Learning Environment
At Mno Grant Elementary, the staff is committed to providing a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for optimum learning. All students and staff follow the "Bear Necessities" while at school, and on the way to/from school:
BE RESPONSIBLE--BE RESPECTFUL--BE SAFE!
All gates to the interior of the school will close at 8:30 AM. Students entering after this time will need to check in at the office, with a parent or note explaining the reason for being tardy, signed by a parent or guardian. Gates will re-open at dismissal. Visitors to the campus must sign in at the office and wear a visitor's badge.
In both parking lots, a loading/unloading zone is designated along the curb. Drivers must proceed to the head of the yellow zone and stop fully before students exit the vehicle on the curb side or load into the car at dismissal. Students waiting for rides at dismissal will be supervised at the flag pole (front parking lot) and fire lane (back parking lot) and will be allowed to proceed to their car once their vehicle is at the head of the loading zone. Vehicles may not park and drivers may not leave their cars in the loading or red zones. For vehicles with a handicap placard, a blue zone is available in both parking lots and drivers may leave their car and escort students into the school. Parents who wish to walk their children into school or pick their children up at the classroom door are asked to park their car in designated spots, walk into the school, and escort their own child. Parents and students may not jaywalk in our parking lots or across Spaulding St. from the school property. Crosswalks must always be used in these areas during entry and dismissal from school.
Food at school: the Mno Grant staff promotes healthy guidelines for food at school, for the benefit of our children. We encourage parents and caregivers to prepare healthy lunches and snacks, and our cafeteria follows criteria for serving healthy food during breakfast and lunch service. Food may never be shared between students, due to allergies. For birthdays or other celebrations, we ask that food items such as cakes, cupcakes, cookies, candy, flavored chips and crackers, soda, and high fructose juices do not come to school. However, teachers will recognize celebrations with small, meaningful momentos, e.g. pencils, erasers, stickers, etc. Parents are asked to consider donating these types of momentos or books for the classroom, in order to celebrate special occasions at school.
Vision and Mission Statements
Vision: Mno Grant students will be provided a safe and nurturing learning environment. All students will have access to a comprehensive educational program that promotes individual worth. The Mno Grant Elementary community will focus on treating members of our learning community with respect by demonstrating responsibility for one’s actions and learning. Mno Grant Elementary staff members, parents, and students will work cooperatively to provide an environment free from any forms of harassment.
Mission: Our goal is to educate the whole child to be a lifelong critical thinker and learner. Students will be academically and technologically literate. Students will learn to be effective collaborators and to take responsibility for their actions. We'll take them from Common Core standards to common sense application.
