Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP)
Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) are the new state assessments for students in grades 3-10. AMP replaces the Standards Based Assessments (SBA), which was administered for the final time in April 2014.
AMP is computer-based and will be administered for the first time in spring 2015. Learn more about the new assessments and technology practice tests at the Alaska Assessments website.
"Pawsitive" Paws Club
When staff members see students exhibiting exemplary behavior (Safe, Kind, Respectful, Responsible), they will give the student a “Pawsitive” Paw. Students will bring their paw to the office, place it on the bulletin board, and sign the “Pawsitive” Paw Club Signature Book. We will notify their parents by sending a “Pawsitive” Paw Certificate via email. When 10 spots are filled up either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, those students will receive a Mystery Motivator. The board is cleared and we start over. We look forward to this “Pawsitive” way of encouraging appropriate behaviors.
It's starting to get cold in Fairbanks and we want to ensure student safety. Attached is a guide to help you know what is expected for winter gear and at which temperatures. The best approach to follow is, send it all in with your child each day! Also, a huge thank you to the parents who have already written their child's name inside. We have MANY items in lost and found already and this makes it easier for us to return items.
Ladd is a Title 1 School

PARKING LOT PLAN
In the past, we have had some difficulty with our drop-off/pick-up zone. We are going to be trying a different pattern this fall. We have switched the old car drop-off/pick-up and the bus pull through. With parents driving one direction through the new drop-off, we are hoping that this will alleviate congestion and provide a safer environment for our students. We will have many staff helping to direct traffic. We will try this and then review whether or not it improves safety. Thank you for your patience as we keep your children safe.

Drills are a proactive approach to practicing our Crisis Management Plan. They are an important training tool for staff and students and help lessen the negative impact of crisis situations. We conduct fire drills every month, lock down drills twice a year and earthquake drills twice per year. Fire Drills are still held during the winter. Please ensure your children come dressed warmly.
Sign In and Badges
ALL visitors to Ladd Elementary school must sign in and take a visitors/volunteer pass if they will be entering the main school (the area past the nurse's office) any time between 9:10am to 3:25pm.
Not only does this give us a chance to note who is coming/going from the school, but it gives emergency personnel a list of who was in the school in case of a situation like a fire or an earthquake so we can ensure everybody is safe.
Thank you for your cooperation!
