 M-STEP Parent Report Video – NOW AVAILABLE

M-STEP Parent Report VideoLast fall, the Michigan Department of Education provided schools and districts with an M-STEP Communication Toolkit in preparation for the release of state, district and building Spring 2015 results. To continue the Department’s commitment to support teachers, parents, and students throughout this transition to higher expectations for all students, a newly developed video is now available which summarizes M-STEP and walks viewers through how to read and interpret student scores within the M-STEP Parent Report.

 

This high quality video could be shown at various school and district meetings and events and/or shared with parents and staff via email or placement on your website.

 

The video is available with or without Closed Caption. The M-STEP Parent Report Communication videos are available on the MDE M-STEP web page at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM55xZ-ZuNU

 

The MDE Communications Toolkit continues to be available on the MDE Secure Site at:https://baa.state.mi.us/BAASecure/

 

CLIMATE

All students at Bowen Elementary will be held to consistently high standards while sustaining Capturing Kids Hearts and PBiS, promoting Responsibility, Teamwork, Respect and Accountability.

STAFF & STUDENTS

As a collaborative team, we believe we are all valued as different and unique individuals.  We strive to know our kids and appreciate our differences by taking responsibility for ALL, regardless of ability or background.  We will also acknowledge our strengths and skills to maintain a cohesive team of staff and students working with parents while working towards the same goal:  to learn.

 

ACADEMIC

We, at Bowen, in order to nurture and foster life-long learners, will provide relevant, rigorous instruction through best practices to maintain high academic performance and cultivate an atmosphere of enthusiastic, self-motivated readers.
