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 August.

  • All students have started the school year with a new set of expectations around COVID. They are meeting those expectations DAILY. Way to go Tigers!
  • Test was the proud recipient of multiple donations supporting the social and emotional needs of our students. Join us in thanking our donors listed above. We were also the PROUD recipient of a $3,000 Stamm-Koechlin grant dedicated to providing our students with real-world experiences. Our community cares for our Tigers.
  • Student fall sports began and our athletes are working hard to represent Test in swimming/diving, cross country, volleyball and football.
  • Our students earned over 33,000 positive LiveSchool points since August 12th!

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