ERB Standardized Testing

All Kindergarten through Seventh Grade students will participate in ERB standardized testing during the month of April. Students need to ensure that they are at school on time, get a good night's sleep, and have a good breakfast.


Kindergarten: Students are testing individually in one setting and will be completed throughout the month

1st Grade: Week of April 23rd

2nd-6th Grade: Week of April 16th

Car Line

Although we have attempted to offer morning car line, it has not become something that our families were interested in having. On most mornings, we have been only getting 3-5 children from the parking lot. We definitely enjoyed getting to greet all of you at the front door in the mornings, but we will no longer offer that service due to the lack of interest. Thank you.
