AzMERIT, High Expectations and You
AzMERIT is the assessment given to third- through 11th-graders in Arizona that determines how students are learning based on Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards. In November 2014, the Arizona State Board of Education voted to replace AIMS with AzMERIT. In Spring 2015, approximately 45,000 Mesa students took AzMERIT assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math on computer or on paper. Parents are expected to receive their child's AzMERIT score report by November 2015.
MPS Student of the Month Award for December was given to John Keeler recognizing his outstanding achievements, attitude, activities, qualities and contributions. John Keeler is a 6th grader in Mr. Stewart’s classroom. Mr. Stewart described John, in his letter of nomination as an excellent student with a positive attitude and compassion for others.
