Testing Notice for Parents!!!
Hello Edmonds Families,
Over the next few weeks students in grades 2-8 will be taking a computer based assessment (TestNav or STAR) with his or her teacher to assess their reading and math skills. It is important that your child complete this assessment independently. Please do not provide answers or clues to the answers or tell students whether their answer is right or wrong
This is a timed test, so it is very important that your child has his or her computer camera turned on. This will not only help ensure test security, but will assist the teachers in making sure your child is focused on the task at hand.
This test does not affect students’ grades. It only helps the teacher understand how to individualize instruction for students.
Thank you for your ongoing support during digital learning!
Located in Northwest Philadelphia and situated in the Cedarbrook Neighborhood, Franklin Spencer Edmonds Elementary School (FSEES) serves more than 600 students from Pre-Kindergarten to the 8th grade. We are one of 15 schools in Learning Network 6. FSEES was, in 2016, designated as a City of Philadelphia Community School.
Our catchment area generally includes and extends to Cheltenham Avenue to the North; Stenton Avenue to the South; Limekiln Pike/Upsal Street to the East; and, Mount Airy Avenue/Easton Road/Wadsworth Avenue to the West. We welcome, on a limited, space-available basis, children and families from outside of our catchment area to join our school community.
At FSEES, we strive for continuous improvement in all that we do. In order for us to continue to do that and to do it well, we need for our students’ families, as well as members of various business, civic, educational, professional, public service, religious, and social organizations in and around our neighborhood and city to join with us to fulfill our charge of providing all of our students with a great public school close to where they live.
Will you join us?
