News from Polson School District No. 23

POLSON — Polson Middle School students are working hard and putting in the effort for their state testing. The 5th and 8th grade students have completed the Science SBAC tests. Grades 5– 8 are currently working on the MAST pilot tests in mathematics and ELA. These tests can be challenging, but they are also an opportunity for the students to showcase what they have learned throughout the year.

A big thank you to Valley Banks and David Lewing for providing financial support to nourish the students during these tests. Community support makes a significant difference in the students’ testing experiences. Providing these snacks can help keep energy levels up and minds focused during these important exams. It is great to see businesses and individuals stepping up to support education in our community.

The 5th grade has been participating in a Water Safety Program at the Mission Valley Aquatics Center. This program is grant funded in a partnership between Greater Polson Community Foundation, Polson School District and Mission Valley Aquatics.

Providing water safety is an utmost priority for our community with us living on beautiful Flathead Lake. The students will be taught 5 core skills and once they master those, they will progress to strokes and diving. One key component of this program is “Safety Day” in which the students will be instructed on proper life jacket fitting and then what to do in the case of an emergency.
