This year, as part of our Social Emotional Learning initiative, all of our Rockets will participate in the Zones of Regulation curriculum, which helps students build skills in regulating their emotions. We encourage students to recognize when they're in various emotional states, which are categorized into four zones: blue, green, yellow and red.
The NWEA, the Measures of Academic Progress Assessment, is given to all grades K-5 at SRE in the fall and winter. It is an adaptive computerized test, which means that the difficulty level of the questions adapts as the student answers questions correctly and/or incorrectly. This is not a test that students can study for. Rather, the purpose of this assessment is to show teachers what each student is able to do and to help teachers with differentiation.
