Student Council presents WACKY WINTER WONDERLAND!!
Students will hear information about our special Santa’s School Shoppe event and the Wacky Winter spirit day contest!
Tuesday, December 1st – Friday, December 4th (or until sold out) – SANTA’S SCHOOL SHOPPE
We have an entirely new supply of all HOLIDAY super fun stuff! Kids will be encouraged to purchase for themselves or for young siblings and relatives as small gifts.
Prices will range from 1 to 4 dollars.
The shop will be open starting Tuesday, from 8:00 to 8:20.
Friday, December 4th – WACKY WINTER SPIRIT CONTEST - $1 to participate in the contest (Free to Dress-Up)
Time to dig out the most festive holiday wear you can find! Get creative! Get wacky! Students will get to show off their wacky winter ensembles at a school assembly. Prizes will be given in every grade level for the most SPIRITED participants!
All proceeds from the Santa School Shoppe and the Wacky Winter Spirit Contest will go towards the purchase of toys to donate to the Eric Berry Foundation. This foundation runs a Stock the Shop event to supply toys for the shop at Children’s Mercy where parents can shop for free for their kids who are in hospital care come Christmas. In honor of our students who have benefited from this in the past, we feel privileged to be able to help contribute to this amazing cause!
This will take place instead of the "STUCO Toys for Tots Toy Drive" that is on the school calendar.

Pennies for Shoes Campaign
This campaign benefits the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund and specifically, The Children’s Shoe Fund at Center of Grace. Every dollar raised goes directly to Center of Grace and the Wimmer Care Fund, supporting Olathe students. If each building could raise just $10.00 more than they did last year… we can literally provide 25 additional students with a new pair of shoes/boots. Your support of this campaign is so appreciated and needed.
Save your change- Tiger Service Club will be outside at arrival collecting coins the week of Dec. 14th- 18th.
Last year Ravenwood raised $283.31
Our goal for this year is $293.31
This school year, 45 schools in the district will be piloting the MAP assessments in reading and math. These assessments are nationally normed achievement tests that provide information on how a student compares to both national and district peers. This assessment will replace the regular district assessments for this school year. MAP results provide teachers, students, and parents with an accurate assessment of a student’s ability, accurately measuring what a child knows and needs to learn. The MAP test, when administered at regular intervals over time, is used to determine whether an individual student or an entire grade level is making satisfactory progress. Teachers can use the assessment data for instructional planning for individual students or an entire class. Students in kindergarten through ninth grades will be given the reading and math assessments during the winter window (December and January time frame) and again in the late spring.
The student data gathered from each MAP administration will be used to help make informed decisions at all levels of the district. Teachers can use the information to plan lessons, differentiate and drive instruction. Pending the successful pilot of the program, the district aims to launch twice-yearly MAP testing in every school in the district in the 2016-17 school year.
