School News

From Principal Smith

Hello Roadrunner Families,

Next week there is no school for our spring break.  I hope you all enjoy a relaxing week of no school.  We look forward to seeing everyone again on April 3rd.  

Please also see that we are going to start keeping all school devices at school in preparation for MCA testing.  Students will no longer be bringing devices to and from school daily.  Please ensure your student returns their device, charger, and case (for Chromebooks).  

Please help support the PTA and our carnival by donating items for the raffle, see the post below for more information.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call Neill Elementary @ 763-504-7400

Music News - March 2023

This week in music we are playing a lot of games leading up to spring break! The best thing about all these games is that we are practicing our musical skills as we have a lot of fun together. In kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade we are playing listening games and our personal favorite is freeze dance! In 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade we are trying a new game called Leader of the Mountain (you can see our 4th graders playing that in our picture!) as well as a fan favorite called bean bag toss! 

MCA Testing - Spring 2023

The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) are state tests in reading, mathematics, and science that are used to meet federal and state legislative requirements. The tests are administered every year to measure student performance relative to the Minnesota Academic Standards that specify what students in a particular grade should know and be able to do.

This important programming provides young learners an opportunity to engage in hands-on activities and build skills to prepare for kindergarten. Part-time and full-time options are available.
