East China will be offering Segment I Driver Education again this summer. The cost for the class is $300. The classroom instruction will take place June19-22, June 26-29 and July 10-13. Driving will take place through the end of July. The week of July 3-7 is considered an MHSAA dead week, which means that coaches are not allowed to schedule anything this week so athletes will have a dedicated week off. Driving will take place this week for those non-athletes and those athletes not on vacation. If your student qualifies, which means he/she must be 14 years, 8 months of age by the first scheduled day of class, they can pick up a contract in the main office of their school. These contracts will be available the week of April 24.
This spring, MCMS students will again be participating in M-Step, the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress.
All students statewide in grades 3-8 will take the English language arts and mathematics assessments, which include open-ended and multiple choice questions. Fourth and seventh graders will take an additional science test; and fifth and eighth graders will take an additional social studies test.
The MCMS teachers are currently working with our students to prepare them for the online testing format and structure. For detailed information related to M-STEP, including sample items for each grade, please visit http://www.michigan.gov/mde.
MCMS will be administering these assessments during their normal ELA, math, science or social studies hours with as ittle disruption to their normal schedule as possible. We ask that you please avoid scheduling any appointments for your student(s) that involve pulling them out of school during the testing windows.
8th grade assessment dates: April 11th - 27th
7th grade assessment dates: May 2 - May 19
6th grade assessment dates: May 4 - May 17
