The Hope-Page Elementary recently wrapped up their Kids Heart Challenge on Friday, February 21st. Students in grades Pre-K through 6th grade raised $8,048.91. Pre-K student Sutton Beaton was the top fundraiser. He “showed his love” by picking a staff member to kiss an animal blindfolded. Mrs. Krueger was the chosen one and got to kiss Millie the basset hound with the whole school watching. The school goal was for each student to raise at least $1. They achieved it! Top fundraisers then got to choose a movie for all students to attend. In addition, for each student that raised $100, they picked a staff member to wear our heart challenge costume for one hour throughout the day. Staff members will be wearing the heart costume for a total of 50 hours! Stop by the school to see who the Heart Hero of the hour is!

North Dakota has a new accountability system reported through NDInsights, more commonly referred to as the “Dashboard.” The Dashboard contains reports that display the performance of school districts, schools, and student groups on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, challenges, and areas in need of additional support. North Dakota’s new NDInsights website is designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and school – including ours. The North Dakota Dashboard features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English Learner progress and attendance. The Dashboard replaces the former School District Report Card and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) reports. Please note, the data made available to the public masks or hides data for groups with 10 or fewer students to protect confidential information about individual students. For questions concerning K-12 education data, please contact the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. Web: www.nd.gov/dpi/contact
