This week and next week our school will be having testing. Our new testing will be the STAR test. This will consist on one testing day per week for the next two weeks. We will test on Wednesday mornings in the computer lab. This week we will be testing on reading and next week will be math. Please remind your child to do their best work. The test results will be available to help with the teaching in the classroom. We will complete the test 3 times a year.
Please be sure your child has a hearty breakfast to ensure great success.
