October is National Fire Prevention Month. It is a time for us to all have a reminder about fire safety and ways we can prevent fires. Today, Deerfield welcomed the Ward Township Fire Department. We're grateful for the lessons they shared with us about fire safety. All students will also be bringing home a kit of safety materials including a smoke alarm. Parents, be sure to ask your children to tell you about what they learned!

Randolph Central Families, Your 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students participated in the ILEARN assessments earlier this spring. Since ILEARN is a new test, the final results with proficiency levels and scale scores will not be available for schools until August 15. In accordance with Indiana Code 20-32-5.1-12(d), parents and schools have an opportunity to request a rescore for any open-ended item(s) to which students responded on the ILEARN assessment. Important Information about the ILEARN Rescore Request Process: • The ILEARN Rescore Request window will be open in mid-July (July 15 – 31). Requests submitted outside of this window will not be processed. • Parents or guardians who wish to view students’ response images and scoring rubrics must visit the school in which their child is officially enrolled. There will not be a separate online portal for parents to access this information. • Together, we will be able to view an image of your student’s response to each open-ended item, sample student responses for each score point, and the scoring rubric to help decide whether to request a rescore for that item. • I will submit any rescore request(s) on your behalf in the online platform. • It is extremely important to understand that requesting a rescore CAN result in your child’s score being lowered, meaning we could unintentionally move your child from a passing score to a failing score through this process. • Once a rescore request is submitted, the request and/or score change cannot be reversed. • A rescore request can only be requested one time for an item. Multiple requests to rescore the same item for a student are not permissible. • All items, responses, and scoring rubrics are secure materials and must not be discussed, shared, distributed, or duplicated. • Final results released on August 15 will reflect any properly submitted requested rescores. Parents or guardians who choose to request a rescore for their child’s ILEARN assessment, must contact our school office to do so no later than July 31, 2019. I will be able to help you view your child’s response images and scoring rubrics and request a rescore for each item. You’re also welcome to contact me with any questions you have regarding requesting a rescore for an ILEARN assessment. Sincerely, Laura Miller, Principal

This is a CORRECTION to information that was posted yesterday in regard to kindergarten entrance dates. According to updated information we received today, we want to make this clarification. 1. To enroll in kindergarten a student still must be at least 5 years old on August 1 of the year of enrollment. 2. Indiana schools may adopt a procedure that allows parents of a student who turns 5 after August 1 to appeal to the schools for enrollment in kindergarten. We apologize for the confusion. If your child will be 5 between August 1 and September 1, and you think he or she is ready for kindergarten, contact our office for further details.

We are in need of volunteers (moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, or big brothers or sisters) to make field day a success! The kids LOVE Field Day. However, there are a lot of stations and a lot of groups that rotate through the stations. Therefore, we need a lot of volunteers. Volunteers will need to plan to arrive around 9:30 a.m. on May 17.
