    Announcing Sora eBooks

    We wanted to share with you all a new opportunity to access both books from our school. Sora is an online service (provided through an app) that allows students to checkout ebooks and audio books. Below are the simple steps you can take to enjoy this new service provided by Norman Public Schools.

     

    • Install the Sora app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, or visit soraapp.com on any mobile device.
    • In Sora, find your school and sign in using your student's ID# as the user name and the password 9876.
    • Once in Sora, browse the Explore tab and borrow a book. Your book will open so you can start reading right away.
    • Close the book and go to your Shelf to see all your books. From there, you can: tap open book or open audiobook to read listen to the book; tap options to renew or return the book, get to your notes and highlights, and more.
     

    3rd, 4th, & 5th Grade State Assessments Results Available

     

    Oklahoma educators and families will be able to review their students’ preliminary state test results for grades 3-8 beginning May 23, 2019. Individual scores will be posted on the OSTP Student/Family Portal linked on the new online interactive Oklahoma School Report Card dashboard at oklaschools.com. To access the portal, families should click on the “Your Student” tab.

     

    This is the first time preliminary scores will be available by the end of May, giving families access to their children’s test scores before summer break begins in many districts. To log in to the portal, families must have their student’s unique 10-digit State Testing Number, or STN, which is available through Madison Elementary or on previous OSTP parent reports. Families are limited to one account but can share a password once that account has been activated.
