Highlights and Recognition

Dear Families,

Each month we strive to meet our mission of providing a caring, challenging environment where dedicated educators prepare students academically, socially, physically and emotionally. Here are a few ways our Tigers ROARED during the month of December.

  • Our students have earned over 330,000 LiveSchool points since the beginning of the school year. Our Tigers keep making positive choices each day.
  • With the support of CIS and Board members Nicole Stults and John Weber, Test Intermediate was able to deliver care packages to each of its virtual students in December.
  • The Test community visited Arbor Trace, painting and visiting (socially distanced) its residents. We are proud of the outpouring of support and compassion displayed by our students and faculty.
  • NWEA for the middle of the year is complete. Our students worked exceptionally hard this year and we want to thank them for their focus and dedication to learning.

As we move into the month of January we look forward to many more positive academic and social experiences for all our Test tigers! #weRtest #tigerup
