STAR and MIPI Testing
FR Haythorne is starting our annual STAR and MIPI testing with the rest of EIPS schools this month. The STAR is a literacy assessment and MIPI is a numeracy assessment. These assessment tools are not formative or summative assessments - but, diagnostic tools that can be used to flag any areas of concerns and direct our teaching moving forward.
MIPI testing is starting the week of September 11th, and STAR will start the following week.
Thanks to Carrie Huculak and Heidi Solez for being the leads for this important project.
If you have any questions please contact Karen Ramsey at the school.
For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar.

All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2017-18 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable transportation fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay pay fees online.
If you haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Look for bus passes and any updated route information in your mail in August.
Purchasing school materials? Before you shop, check your child’s School Supply List.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
