~Acorn Elementary~ Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow is test day. Tomorrow through Thursday your child will be taking ACT® Aspire® assessments for 3rd-6th. The valuable data we gain from these assessments allows us to make evidence based decisions when addressing your child’s strengths, areas for improvement, and growth potential. This can give you an early indication of his or her likely readiness for the future, providing time to address areas where improvement is needed. Important things to remember for this week’s testing: • Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before the tests. • Have your child at school on time. • Make sure your child has a nutritional breakfast. • Encourage your child not to stress about this test, but to try their hardest to show what they have learned this school year.

~Acorn Preschool~ During Arkansas Children’s Week, Mrs. Rusert did a wonderful “Bear” program for our preschoolers. She taught them about a bear’s natural habitat, what they eat, what type of bears we have in our state. Children were able to see and touch a real bearskin,  skull, and bear paw.  Students were amazed by the topic and talked about it for days after! Thank you, Mrs. Rusert, for being such an awesome science teacher at AES!

ORSD: CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) is launching a national communication initiative, “Protect Young People from E-Cigarettes,” to educate staff working in school settings about the risks of youth e-cigarette use. Youth e-cigarette use remains a public health concern. In 2020, nearly 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 middle school students reported current use of e-cigarettes. E-cigarette use among youth is unsafe. Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive and can harm adolescent brain development. E-cigarettes come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors, some of which are easy to hide. Visit cdc.gov/e-cigarettes for additional information and resources about youth e-cigarette use.

**Acorn High School Announcement* The Ouachita River School District supports all students through its mission to provide a safe, caring environment where everyone learns and grows in order to be prepared for life. A key component of the District’s mission is to participate in and provide assessments that support students’ learning, growth, and transitions. Assessment, in general, means a procedure that is utilized to collect data or information about an individual and/or group to make informed decisions. Assessments can include, but are not limited to, screenings and in-depth assessments. The assessment process includes four important steps: 1) identify the problem, 2) select and implement assessment methods, 3) evaluate assessment information, and 4) report assessment results and make appropriate recommendations and/or referrals. The upcoming state-mandated assessment your child will be participating in is the ACT Aspire, which measures English, math, reading, science, and writing academic achievement administered to high school students in grades 7 through 10. You are an important member of the collaborative team and partnership in your child’s experience at Ouachita River School District. One of the ways to help support your child’s experience and success on interim and annual assessments is to be informed about the assessment tool and how to be better prepared during the testing period. The ACT Aspire assessments align your child’s academic growth and readiness with their career goals. The interim or practice assessments are being given this spring in preparation for the annual ACT Aspire assessments. The annual ACT Aspire assessments will be given April 13-15, 2021 on the AHS campus. Students in grades 7-10 will need to be ON CAMPUS for the tests administered April 13-15. Testing will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. each testing day. STUDENTS MUST BRING THEIR CHROMEBOOK and CHROMEBOOK CHARGER to school each day for testing. The testing schedule will be as follows: Tuesday, April 13 8:00 - 10:30 AM Reading & English Wednesday, April 14 8:00 - 10:15 AM Science & Writing Thursday, April 15 8:00 - 9:45 AM Math Just a few tips to make this assessment experience the best it can be for your child: Bring Chromebook to school campus each day, FULLY CHARGED and make sure both Chromebook and charger are brought to school each test day. Please remind your child to get plenty of rest the night before the test. ACT Aspire is a timed test. Be careful not to spend too much time on one question. Go back and review the test if you finish and have time to spare. You can find additional information about ACT Aspire assessment on the following website at https://www.discoveractaspire.org and please feel free to contact me if you have questions or need my assistance. Sincerely, Dewayne Taylor, AHS Principal

ORSD Family, Today the Governor lifted the mask mandate across Arkansas. The Arkansas Department of Education has directed schools to meet two conditions before discontinuing the use of masks. First, the ORSD Ready for Learning Committee must meet and re-evaluate our safety measures given the Governor's announcement. Second, the ORSD School Board must meet and approve the safety recommendations of the Ready for Learning Committee. Until then, all students, teachers, and staff must continue to wear their masks at school. We will update you as more information is available. Respectfully, Jerrall Strasner Superintendent

Oden Campus Parents, Families and Community Members: Every year, each public school and district in Arkansas receives a Report Card. Just as each student’s report card shows his/her progress in specific subjects, the School Report Card shows how our school is performing in different areas. This user-friendly information is available at https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov/SRC/30/5706009. The goal of the Report Card is to provide transparent and accessible information to parents, families, and the community all in one place. In the 2019-2020 school year, events related to COVID-19 caused a substantial disruption to on-site instruction, assessment, accountability, and reporting. Because of these events, some items typically included in accountability and reporting are not available. Although COVID-19 has made substantial interruptions, the work of our learning communities continues. The global pandemic interrupted not only our nation’s health, but it interrupted our educational system. In the 2019-2020 school year, Arkansas’ students did not participate in high stakes testing. The lack of assessment data allows us to view accountability through other lenses that support student achievement. Please take note of our Graduation Rates. The staff, students, and community has worked hard to help each student achieve high school graduation status. Oden K-12 Schools is grateful for your continued support. If you have questions about the Report Card, please visit the My School Info website https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov/SRC to find more information, definitions of terms, videos which explain how the site works, and answers to frequently asked questions. If you would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to know more about the information in our school report card, please contact us at 870-326-4311.
