News and Events

A Kid, A Can, A Month
 
OK Orcans!!!! It is time to help our community. Orca K-8 is one of the largest contributors to the Rainier Valley Food Bank. Let's continue that tradition. Please send non-perishable foods to your student's class. Or, you can deliver items to the office. In addition to food, our neighbors need diapers and formula. If you would like to send cash, please make the check out to: Rainier Valley Food Bank.

At the end of each month the cans for each class are tallied and the Golden Can Award is given to the class with the most contributions. 




Harvest Festival



Harvest Festival is here again!

We had another great Harvest Festival this year. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make it a great!


MAP Testing
MAP test Window for fall is September 22nd to October 31st.
 
There have been some changes to MAP testing.
  • 1st and 2nd graders will be map tested fall and spring.
  • New students without MAP or MSP 2014 spring data are tested.
  • Orca is testing all middle school students.
  • 3rd - 5th graders are tested based on teacher choice and/or family request.
  • Map testing is administered to Kindergarteners in the Spring Only.
What else is new?
  • MAP is now Common Core aligned.
  • The K-1st grade assessments are now one assessment per subject instead of two.
  • Entire classes of students can be paused and continued later to make the assessment less stressful for students.
Other information:
  • If you want to have your student MAP tested and they are in 3rd through 5th grades, please let us know. We can assess individual students and are willing to if parents/guardians request it.
  • Advanced placement requires spring 2014 MAP test scores. So if you are applying for your student, you should already be able to access that information on the Source.
