Odyssey of the Mind
Bristow Run is excited to be participating in Odyssey of the Mind!
What is O.M.? - The Odyssey of the Mind Program teaches students to learn creative problem-solving methods while having fun in the process. By tapping into creativity, and through encouraging imaginative paths to problem-solving, students learn skills that will provide them with the ability to solve problems -- great and small -- for a lifetime.

Dear BRES Family
This fall, the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT®) and the Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability Test - 2nd Edition (NNAT2) will be administered to third grade students in Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS). We want to take this opportunity to provide you with some information about these tests and why they are administered.   
CogAT is designed to appraise the cognitive development of students. More specifically, its authors claim the test measures a student’s learned reasoning abilities developed through both in-school and out-of-school experiences. NNAT2 was designed to assess the development of reasoning and problem solving skills. During this test, students are asked to solve a series of non-verbal logic problems. NNAT2 provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate reasoning skills, without relying on language.   
The results from CogAT and NNAT2 will be used in combination with other classroom achievement information to assist teachers in understanding the learning strengths and needs of each individual student. The purpose is to help design the most effective instructional plan for each student so that all perform to the best of their ability.  
The best way to prepare your student for these tests is to encourage them to do their best. We expect results for CogAT and NNAT2 to be available by early January next year. When results are available, a copy of your student’s scores will be sent to you.  
If you have questions about CogAT or NNAT2, please contact your student’s school.  

Bristow Run participates in Walk to School Day 2015
International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration - with record breaking participation - each October. Today, thousands of schools across America - from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico - participate every October.
