Mr. O’Melia will be holding a pre-school exercise/focus session each morning of the PARCC testing at 8:15 in the Gymnasium. Students will engage in a range of activities designed to trigger brain function and stimulate each individual's body and mind. This is completely voluntary but highly recommended for each student on their testing day.

PARCC Testing Dates 2016

Grades 4 & 5- May 9th-12th
