CESGRANRIO - Portuguese Language Proficiency Assessment (external diagnostic assessment)
Dates & Times Starts: 04/24/2017 @ All Day
Ends: 04/26/2017 @ All Day
Summary Brazilian students from 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th grades will take a diagnostic evaluation in the Portuguese Language, which focuses on reading and writing skills. This evaluation was previously conducted by CESPE/​​​UnB from 2004 to 2012. Since 2013, CESGRANRIO conducts this evaluation at EAB along with other 11 international schools in Brazil. We are able to evaluate if EAB student progress is on the same level as other Brazilian students attending public and private schools around Brazil. This year the evaluation will be on April 10th, 11th and 12th. Portuguese Language exams – reading - on-line - will include interpretation and contextualized grammar. The writing exam differs by grade level:: 5th grade - an adventure narrative; 7th grade - a personal letter; 9th grade - an argumentative letter; 11th grade - an argumentative text. We recommend that all Brazilian students, in the grades listed below, attend the test dates so we can compare the EAB student results with the results of students of private schools in the Federal District, and also with the national SAEB/​​​Prova Brasil in Reading/​​​Portuguese Language. The purpose of this test is: - to provide EAB students with equity in achieving Brazilian Vestibular/national exams; - to evaluate EAB student progress comparing to students attending public and private schools around Brazil; - to identify essential knowledge and skills for the next grade level; - to re-evaluate instructional practice in classroom, aiming to promote continued learning SCHEDULE: Schedule: Dia 24/04 – 2ª feira - (Dia D) – 7º ano (29 alunos) 8h – 9h30 - produção textual – (US14) – Gracinha’s room 9h30 – 9h45 - intervalo 9h45 – 11h15 - exame online – MS Maker Space (US20) Dia 25/04 - 3ª feira - (Dia 7/ H) - 5º ano (32 alunos) 8h - 9h30 - produção textual – (US 15) Lauana’s room 9h30 – 9h45 - intervalo 9h45 - 11h15 – exame online - MS Maker Space (US20) Dia 26/04 – 4ª feira - (Dia D) - 9º ano (28 alunos) 9h - 10h30 - produção textual (US14) Gracinha’s room 10h30 – 10h45 - intervalo 10h45 - 12h15 - exame online - MS Maker Space (US20) Dia 26/04 – 4ª feira - (Dia D) 11º ano (29 alunos) curso regular + IB 9h - 10h30 - exame online (US iCommons) 10h30 – 10h45 - intervalo 10h45 - 12h15 - produção textual (US iCommons)

In the mindset of partnership with our community, we would like to share with you two items that have come to our attention regarding internet safety. As the caretakers of our students’ well being, we believe being aware and prepared to help our children navigate the new trends that are accessible through the internet are of vital importance. The two aforementioned items are an online game called "Blue Whale" and a series on Netflix, "13 Reasons Why", both of which focus on unhealthy ways to deal with depression and anxiety.

According to the information previously sent out, next week students from 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th grades will take the Portuguese external diagnostic test, on April 24th, 25th and 26th, following the schedule below.

On Thursday, April 27 the Class of 2017 will begin the IB examination period. The IB Exams are a culmination of two years of work for your sons and daughters and it is appropriate that we celebrate their efforts before the testing sessions begin. We therefore ask you to help us coordinate an IB Celebration Breakfast on Wednesday, April 26 from 9:00-9:45 a.m. In keeping with the international spirit of the IB Organization, we ask that you prepare a breakfast dish from your home country to share with the IB students, their parents and their teachers. The hope is that each family bring only enough food for 6-8 people. If all families participate we should have enough for everyone to enjoy.
April 20, 2017
Starting next Friday, the US iCommons will be used for IB exams. The after school pick up room will be US Room 1 (Mr. Fitzgerald’s room) April 27- May 19. This room is located towards the front of the school, close to the outdoor basketball courts. Please ask Security or any staff person for assistance with locating this room.

Welcome to the American School of Brasilia or, as the school is commonly referred to, EAB. Thank you for visiting our website and seeking to learn more about EAB’s educational programs and our community. We hope this site will answer your questions, whether you are a prospective parent, student, or a teacher looking into employment possibilities.
 
It can be argued that one of EAB’s greatest strengths is its sense of community and I often hear the word “family” used to describe how people feel about the school. It is a community where friendships are quickly formed, Brazilian, American and international cultures are warmly embraced, and relationships are highly valued. It is EAB’s strong sense of community that forms the foundation to support the five pillars of the school: leadership, service, arts, activities, and academics. In addition, EAB is proud to offer three rigorous diplomas – American, Brazilian, and International Baccalaureate (IB) – in an environment that promotes the holistic education of each child through a differentiated approach. Finally, EAB provides an outstanding educational program to its students in a manner that allows students to achieve their potential through an approach that is both supportive and challenging.
 
The American School of Brasilia has been operating for more than fifty years, since the inception of the city of Brasilia, which has led to a strong relationship between the school and the Brazilian community, international organizations, and more than 140 embassies located in the city. It is through these strong connections that EAB is poised to celebrate another fifty years of continued growth, development, and excellence. EAB is an exceptional school that has played a key role in the education of Brazilian and international students and there is indeed much to be proud of at this time in the school’s history. We are equally excited about the future and the current initiatives to continue ensuring EAB’s place as an outstanding school in the international and local educational communities.
 
Thank you again for visiting EAB’s website. There is a tremendous amount of pride and excitement associated with EAB and we are appreciative of the opportunity to share the EAB spirit with you through this venue.

Sincerely,

Barry Dequanne
Head of School
